Launch of the intelliWEAR Leadership Council (EAST)

September 19 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Are you involved in wearables or have an active interest in smart textiles?

The global smart textiles and wearable technology market is growing at a rapid pace. intelliWEAR is looking for your involvement to help align Canada’s tech leadership for this future. The intelliWEAR Leadership Council’s mission is to bring together tech executives active in this sector to further its development, understand and eliminate road blocks and to form effective supply chains.  No one organization can compete and succeed on its own in this global market. Join us as we unite with the leading innovators in Canada.

This program will be modeled after our very successful intelliPACK Leadership Council in the retail and packaging sector that already brings together the supply chain – materials, tech developers, applications companies, integrators, retailers and major brand owners such as Jones Packaging, Xerox, Unilever, Molson Coors and Sobeys. We will build a similar end-to-end supply chain for intelliWEAR to drive our industry forward.
