Congratulations on this year's event; it was one of, if not the best, organised conferences I have come across.


For our high-tech start-up taking part in the IDTechEx Wearable Technology event, was a catalytic experience. Not only did we win the Best New Wearable Technology Device - award, we also were barely capable of coping with the overwhelming interest of top level quality contacts at our stand


Exhibiting at IDTechEx Wearable Technology event was a fantastic experience for Ohmatex. We were inundated with visitors to our stand throughout the two days, generating many high quality leads. The whole event was a great exercise in raising the profile of Ohmatex's expertise in integrating sensors and electronics into textiles.
