The GLAZED Conference, put on by Wearable World, Inc., brings together technology pioneers, founders, executives, influencers, and investors, who are working to make business sense of wearable technology platforms and propel the overall ecosystem, and industry, forward.

Plantronics has been a wearable tech pioneer for decades – developing and delivering personal audio solutions that are used by millions to communicate. With its advances in on-board sensor technology and its open APIs, the company has moved the classic headset beyond audio and transformed it into an intelligent wearable device and platform with possibilities only limited by a developer’s imagination.
