WESTCHESTER, N.Y. – 10 Feb, 2016 – BrainXchange – a leading boutique conference organizer – announced the early confirmed speaker lineup for the Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit East, which includes some of the biggest companies and foremost experts in the world.

Wearable technology – one of the fastest growing and most exciting sectors in mobile technology – promises to be a game changer for the enterprise, where numerous job roles and tasks in all industries require employees to have access to real-time information in a hands-free, on-the-go fashion.

“The enterprise adoption of wearable technology is really beginning to ramp-up. The market is moving from enterprises piloting 20-30 devices to commercially rolling out hundreds of devices.” – Andrew Ferguson, Innovation Director, BrainXchange.

The Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit East – being held June 16-17, 2016 at W Downtown in Atlanta, Georgia – is the only event focused exclusively on the use of wearable technology in business and industry. Consisting of real-world case studies and best-practice user examples, the conference looks into how some of the most forward-thinking companies, from across the industry spectrum, are seeking to utilize wearables in order to innovate, boost productivity, increase efficiencies, cut costs, and improve the safety of employees in the field.

Ubimax, one of the leading sponsors of the conference and a leading supplier of industrial Wearable Computing Solutions, also announced the opening of its new office in Atlanta, Georgia, one of the primary logistics hubs in the United States. “I am very happy to announce the opening of our first non-European office in Atlanta!” states Dr. Hendrik Witt, CEO of Ubimax, who completed his PhD thesis in the area of wearable computing at Georgia tech with Prof. Thad E. Starner as his supervisor. “We have selected Atlanta as the best location for our first US-based office with many existing customers, partners, research institutes and events all based in and around Atlanta.
