Update May 29, 2017

 

Postponement of Wearable Berlin, realignment in spring 2019

 

Thank you very much for your interest to come, exhibit and speak at our event in Berlin. We are very sorry to tell you that we had to decide for reasons relevant to the market to postpone our trade show prematurely. An exact date for an event focused also on consumers will be announced for spring 2019 soon.

 

.............................................................................................................

 

The International trade fair Wearable Berlin will take place with its Gadget Days from 20 to 22 October 2017 at venue STATION-Berlin. The trade show will be accompanied by a convention dedicated to the sector's trends and future perspectives.

 

Wearables or mobile electronic devices, worn inside or close to the body, is an enormous growth market. Wearables have been technologically possible for a long time, but are now also ergonomically efficient and economically profitable for companies: in 2016 more than 91 million wearables have been sold worldwide.

 

Wearable Berlin takes place annually as a trade fair in the German capital with an accompanying convention program. For the first time in Germany, about 100 national and international exhibitors will present a broad cross-section of all relevant fields of application in different industries and services. The first day will be restricted to trade visitors as a B2B event. On the weekend Wearable Berlin opens its doors to the startup city's broader public as Gadget Days. We expect more than 10,000 visitors and a strong media presence.

 

The exhibitors are companies from the product and application development sector, health care, wellness, sports & fitness, smart textiles & fashion, jewellery, medical technology, safety & security, near-field communication (NFC), sensor technology, cryptocurrency as well as from the lifestyle, education & entertainment sectors. Specialized publishers, professional associations, research institutions, various service providers, and suppliers will also be present.

 

Wearable Berlin addresses specialist and managerial staff, Chief Information Officers (CIOs), Chief Digital Officers (CDOs ), investors, universities, research institutions, media representatives and private consumers. Our visitors come mainly from the sectors of product design, hardware, public health, diagnosis, medical insurance, fashion, competitive sports and fitness. We expect IT service providers, representatives of location-based services, payment, software and app development, occupational safety, law, compliance and data protection, business development, the agency scene and business consultants. In short: everyone is looking for innovative, mobile solutions, and key technologies for their industry or everyday life.

 

The convention accompanying the trade fair offers a great variety of interesting topics and new event formats that are attractive for managers and decision-makers, business angels, players from the augmented or virtual reality scene, key industry experts, early adopters, trend-setters, designers, analysts, consultants, retailers, entertainment specialists and media professionals.

 

The event and convention center STATION-Berlin offers 5,500 square meters of unique, high-quality and historic industrial space in the heart of Berlin with an excellent connection to the Berlin public transport network near Potsdamer Platz.

 

As regards sustainability, Wearable Berlin also takes on responsibility. The trade fair wants to consider itself a “Sustainable Trade Show“ as fast as possible, shows a strong commitment to sustainable action and supports the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Using a carbon-footprint calculator, the fair's climate assessment is being realistically estimated and compensated.
