Berlin should be positioned internationally as Wearable City – therefore we need platforms like the Wear It Festival.
The search for innovative solutions and wearables is a big topic at the moment! Of course we deal with the issue and we see if we can work together with one or the other here at the event.
It´s a good place for networking and you get a lot of new impressions of fields that you will rarely get to know at other conferences.
I think it’s incredibly important to exchange ideas because there are so many directions and niches in this field. It is necessary to bring all stakeholders together in one room.This event is very inspiring and it´s definitely worth taking part in!
Textiles are getting more and more functional. You can witness this trend in the sport industry, so why not take this to the medical technologies?
Wear It has been a very significant forum because it brings together some of the top people in the industry and it gets them talking. It gets people sharing ideas. There is a great opportunity to get feedback.
I think we want to revolutionize the fashion tech industry by really bringing together everybody in it and that’s why these conferences, why Wear It is super important to the industry. Let’s get everybody together and let’s co-make.
At the Wear It Festival it is an intimate setting that allows us as experts to sort of like shine, speak with the audience and the actual Wear It Hub allows for people to really in a very very short period of time in a very small space to showcase their products.
We are looking at Wear It Festival, collecting information what is it about, what is the next hype, what may happen here. Not only here because this will be carried out into the entire world.
Launch by great people in a enthusiastic Atmosphere Wear it Berlin is clearly a place in Europe where Future meet Textile, if you are brand, investor, or community leader a place you have to stop every year
The Wear It Festival is THE inspiring and vision giving event that allowed the amazing movement of smart textiles and smart clothing to further accelerate.
It’s fantastic to see Wear It becoming such a steady force in shaping the fashion tech community in Berlin and beyond.
