Join us during #FASHIONTECH BERLIN as WUNDERJEWEL (Jewell and Larissa), Kickstarter (Monika Kanokova) and Hardware Consultant (Niclas Fritz) “Bridging the Gap,” Fashion + Technology . Designers, technologists and aspiring entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend our speed meeting exercise. The purpose of the exercise is to encourage people to meet and potentially collaborate on projects related to fashion and technology.
#FASHIONTECH BERLIN is a day-long sub-conference of the re:publica 2015, all about fashion, technology and Wearables. The event unites gadgets, hacking and fashion, creating a (long overdue) bridge between technology and design. Wearables, and their potential for all-encompassing connectivity, have become particularly interesting in connection with the Internet of Things (IoT).
At #rp15, it will take place on the first day, May 5th, this time with a stronger focus on technology. Next to the talks, there will be a lab with additional sessions, workshops, meet-ups, and an exhibition space. On the second day of the #rp15, the lab will remain in place, and will focus on the Internet of Things in connection with design. On the third day of the conference, the lab will be dealing mainly with the issue of Wearables in fields like sports, healthcare or medicine. More details on the sub-conference program at re:publica 2015 are published here.
The new Wearables conference format originated from the collaboration of the re:publica with two international fashion trade shows, PREMIUM andSEEK. In addition, the subconference at #rp15 is hosted with a cooperation partner, Projekt Zukunft, with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Access to this sub-conference is certainly included in your #rp15 ticket. In addition, we’re offering day tickets for #FASHIONTECH BERLIN alone as well! Go to our ticket page and use the code “FASHIONTECH”, and you will see a special #FASHIONTECH BERLIN ticket on the list.
