Norwalk, CT – April 30, 2014 – Today TMC announced the agenda for its Fitness & Sports Wearable Technology (FAST) Expo II, held July 22, 2014, at The Javits Center in New York City. Collocated with the Wearable Tech Conference & Expo III, the FAST Expo will share insight and expertise on the growing market of wearable, mobile and data technologies for the fitness and sports industries.    

“The Wearable Tech industry is rapidly evolving, and these events provide attendees the opportunity to create new business relationships, share innovative ideas and catch a glimpse into how wearable technology is changing lives on both the professional and personal level,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman. “The FAST agenda is filled with the information key industry players need to enter this market successfully and deliver innovations to improve fitness and performance.”

The FAST Expo’s programming includes sessions covering a variety of topics, including real-time player performance tracking, fitness safety and how to leverage the data stored in wearable technology. Current sessions include:

  • Training the Data: From Gym to Screen - This session will take a look at sensor development, what types of data these sensors are able to collect and deliver to applications and how that data becomes actionable information to create wearable systems for safety, training and personal fitness and wellness.
  • The New Home Field Advantage Part I (The Player) - While many organizations are starting to use wearable tech to improve team results, individual athletes are also looking at biometric data to fine-tune their own workouts and increase their own performance. This session looks at how today’s top athletes are able to differentiate themselves by combining technology with their natural physical ability.
  • The New Home Field Advantage Part 2 (The Team) - This session discusses the specific data available to coaches and trainers, how they can leverage that information to create on-field, team-level advantages and how they have fine-tuned training to maximize data collection.
