The Accumold marketing team will participate in its first-ever Wearable Technologies Conference Europe, bringing the Ankeny, Iowa company’s story of micro-molding expertise to a new audience

The WT Conference 2016 Europe is slated for Jan. 26-27 at the Internationales Congress Center in Munich, Germany. This year’s event marks the 10th year that Wearable Technologies, a pioneer and world leading innovation and market development platform, has sponsored the business-to-business event. Its next big event, WT Conference 2016 Australia, will take place in Sydney this May.

“Wearable technology is absolutely fascinating and will change our lives in so many ways as it gains more and more market acceptance and consumers understand all the great things it can do,” Aaron Johnson, Accumold’s Vice President of Marketing and Customer Strategy, said today. “This will be our first time at the WT Conference and I think it’s going to be both a wonderful learning experience for us and a home run as we share with that cutting-edge industry everything that Accumold can do.”

Speakers at the Munich event will cover an extraordinary range of topics, from “Ethical Issues in Mobile Health and Wearable Technology” and ” The Evolution of Smart Textiles” to “Leveraging the Power of Wearables for Hospitalized Patients” and “Home-use Skin Cancer Detecting Band Aid.”

“We’re going into this event with a real sense of excitement both for what we’ll learn and for the opportunity to strengthen Accumold’s visibility in the billion-dollar wearables market,” Johnson said.
