Invitation To Hands-On Future Tech Demonstration

In Partnership with Savannah Group.

Tomorrow’s World Today? Wearables; injectables and crypto wallets!!

We live in an age of wonder; a world of wearables, holographic computing and injectables; a world where sensors of every sort and type are anywhere and everywhere.  A world where the device in your pocket is not just a communications platform but a virtual and augmented reality engine as well as your identity and your crypto wallet.  As a technology leader, how do you set up a sensing function in your organization to help you spot the opportunities these advances may afford your business?

In this session, Lewis Richards from Leading Edge Forum will showcase an intimate and fascinating demonstration of the very latest technology, deliver a hands-on experience of these devices and provide insights on where these technologies can be used in current business applications.

Spaces are strictly limited so please RSVP. We hope that you will be able to join us for this exciting discussion where you can begin to visualise the possibilities of the new world that we are beginning to inhabit.
