The NY TRI EXPO ’16, scheduled for Saturday, March 19 from 10 – 6 pm at Citi Field in NYC, will bring Silicon Valley to Queens by holding a wearable tech panel, which will include demonstrations from some of the most innovative tech products for athletes.
“Athletes, especially triathletes, are early adopters,” said Hilary JM Topper, MPA, Show Producer, Blogger and CEO of HJMT Media Company LLC. “We thought it was important to have this session as part of the days learning events to show triathletes some of the cutting edge technology out there to help them grow and perform better.”
The three confirmed speakers are: Stephane Marceau, co-founder and CEO of Omsignal in Montreal; Ariel Garten- Co-Founder and Chief Evangelist Officer at InteraXon in Toronto; and Monisha Perkash- CEO and Co-founder at Lumo Bodytech from Palo Alto, CA.
OMsignal produces smart clothing and will be introducing a smart bra for athletes that measures everything from heart rate to calories burned. IntraXon creates brainwave-controlled products and experiences. The company specializes in thought controlled computing solutions. And, Lumo Bodytech develops smart sensors and software to optimize human potential and empower you to be the best version of yourself by tracking posture.
“These are the three companies so far that we are showcasing at the expo,” said Topper. “There will be more and we’re excited to show them off to the New York Triathlon community.”
In addition to the wearable tech panel, throughout the day, there will be nearly 20 workshops and discussions on everything related to running, swimming and cycling. There will be sessions on the mental preparation, injury prevention and how to get the most of your performance.
