The digitization trend elevates customer expectations across every industry, with businesses progressively impacted by and interconnected with disruptive transformations outside their industry. Digital disruptions are the disruptions to the state of affairs of how a company runs. This can be compared to hitting a pothole while you’re driving. You may have driven through this road numerous times, but potholes can abruptly appear, disrupting your regular travel route. You can either try to mend the pothole or find a detour. At our upcoming WT | Wearable Technologies Conference in San Francisco on July 11-12, we will invite company bosses and innovators from all over the world. The companies will showcase their product, while these leaders and innovators will keep us updated on the latest trends and innovations by speaking at the conference. The companies and their leaders speaking at the conference are listed below. Do not miss the chance to meet and listen to them in person and join us for #WTUS18!
