27 September 2017, Barker Brettell, Birmingham
2.15pm – 4.30pm
Technology is moving at a pace that seems almost impossible to keep up with. CCS Insight has indicated that 411 million smart wearable devices, worth a staggering $34 billion, will be sold in 2020. How can a manufacturing or design business keep up and ensure it is properly protected on this journey?
Come and see two thriving and contrasting entrepreneurs discuss their gripping insights into the future of tech and their journey into this exciting arena.
- Marija Butkovic, co-founder of the Kisha Smart Umbrella and Women of Wearables, will discuss challenges and innovation opportunities within the hardware space from the angle of building fashion tech products for everyday use.
- Steve May-Russell, managing director and owner of Smallfry Industrial Design and Innovation, and National Chairman at British Industrial Design Association (BIDA) will look at thought provoking and future gazing technologies coming to us all soon.
Barker Brettell’s Carrie Johnson and Nicola Hill from Browne Jacobson will discuss how to properly protect and enforce your intellectual property rights when creating new products and designs and collaborating with tech-partners. They will also look at practical steps to assist when problems arise.
