    Best office with chandeliers I have ever seen! :-)

    Fascinating insight into the world of fashion and retail. Met some very interesting people and look forward to exploring opportunities for Glasses Free 3D display technology with them.

    Great meetup. Loved iBeacon. Alex. Will drop you a mail shortly to pick up on our conversation

    April 17, 2014

  • Alex S.

    Thanks for listening everyone, I hope it was interesting (and apologies if the PowerPoint made your eyes bleed). If anyone wants to know more about iBeacons or indeed any other retail tech, drop me a line - [masked].

    Also glad the beacons demo was popular, so popular in fact that someone "borrowed" one of our beacons to take home with them! Can we have it back please, anonymous beacon enthusiast? No questions asked...

    It takes a while to find. Head for the House of Fraser signs, which if you have arrived via Wood Lane is a long way away. If you have arrived at Vue Cinemas ... Back down the stairs you go ...

    April 9, 2014

    • Scott W.

      Just returned from this event last week, a large % of the talk was about use of beacons. PayPal gave a keynote talk about their vision for using beacons ... which is about the whole shopping experience, browsing, finding and purchasing.

  • Greeshma S.

    I look forward to attending this.

    Is this mostly about Fashion or Tech. I'm mostly interested in practical and valuable use cases for Wearable Technologies and have some experience and input in this area, but also looking to learn from others. I am especially researching these areas and Smart Glasses from an investment perspective.
    Less interested in garments and fabrics that light up!

    1 · March 5, 2014

    • Alex S.

      It's about the congruence of fashion and technology. To answer your question, both! For each FashTech event, we will have a different topic that the panel discussion will focus on. Recently, we have discussed FashTech April to be focused on Wearable Tech and if so, your input would be much appreciated. Let's talk in April ahead of the event when I will have more detail. Thanks!
