The Gadget Show Live Professional will take place at the NEC on Tuesday 8 April, with UK first looks on hundreds of products. 6,000 industry professionals are expected to attend. As the one-day curtain-raiser to the five-day Gadget Show Live consumer event, Gadget Show Professional is an opportunity for the trade to see, try and buy products in a business-focused environment before the doors are thrown open to the general public.
Over 250 suppliers will be displaying tech gadgetry, including headline sponsor Microsoft and JVC, Citroen, Pioneer, Fitbit and Garmin. Gadget Show Live Professional 2014 will host the launch of the British Inventors Project – home to a hand-picked selection of futuristic products from British innovators, none of which is yet available on the market. Prototypes and design concepts will also be showcased in the Future Tech Zone, where next-gen technology will be sourced from inventors both at home and abroad.
“2014 is already proving to be an exciting year for consumer technology,” said event director Sally Bent. “Anticipation and consumer demand is at an all-time high for wearable tech, for example, which will be just one of a wide range of genres well represented at the show this April. For anyone working in technology-related industries, a trip to Gadget Show Professional this spring is an unmissable date for the diary. As they say, miss it, miss out. It really is the only way to stay ahead of the curve and keep up to date with product launches planned for this year and way in to the future.”
