ARM, who's technology is used by over 5.5 billion people;
Toyota, the biggest automaker in the world, covering mobility innovation.
After the Cornerstone presentations the conference program splits into parallel tracks covering the key themes of 3D printing, sensors, electric vehicles, energy storage innovations, sensors, printed and flexible electronics, graphene, the Internet of Things and wearable technology.
Raghu Das, CEO of IDTechEx who organize the event, says, "Our event content is driven by our global analyst team, highlighting the true opportunities and needs that these emerging technologies can address. This unique event therefore provides attendees with real insight into how they can create value and provides an important role in linking user companies to enabling technologies to enable the faster successful adoption of these technologies."
One of the speakers at the prior IDTechEx Show!, Heidi Dohse, spoke of her experience, "I was happily working for one of the best recognized companies in the world while also pursuing my two passions - healthcare and cycling. At the IDTechEx Show!, I met my current employer who offered me a dream opportunity where I could pursue my passions on the job! Now I am working on graphene healthcare sensors and fast charge batteries for eBikes. I have been going to the IDTechEx Show! for the past three years, the experience is phenomenal, you can learn so much about a variety of emerging technologies all under one roof."
