Uproar PR Partners With We Are Wearables to Bring Event to US

The Popular Toronto Technology Meet-Up for Wearable Tech Enthusiasts Comes to Chicago on November 10

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2014) - Uproar PR, a full-service public relations and social media agency, has partnered with We Are Wearables to host We Are Wearables Chicago, a meet-up bringing together wearable technology enthusiasts in the Midwest. The event is Monday, November 10 at 6:30 p.m. at 1871, Chicago's headquarters for digital startups. 

Launched in December 2013, We Are Wearables Toronto was created by wearable technology expert and enthusiast, Tom Emrich, in an effort to bring awareness to the industry and the startups, entrepreneurs, investors, brands, developers and designers behind the expanding wearable technology space. The meet-up has quickly become a must-attend event for Canadian startups looking for a platform to share their innovations -- from fitness to fashion to health. 

"The inspiration for We Are Wearables Toronto was to unite people who share a passion for wearable technology. The event continues to grow in Toronto, and with Chicago's focus on tech, bringing the event to the Windy City was a logical next step. With the help of Uproar and 1871, I'm excited to launch the next phase of the We Are Wearables Community," said Emrich.

The Chicago meet-up will feature a behind the scenes look at the design story of the Moto 360 by Motorola's Design Director, Dickon Issacs. A panel conversation with 1871, Motorola and Rithmio will focus on the challenges wearable tech faces in adoption, and the opportunity this technology has to change the way we communicate and manage our lives. Following the panel, Rithmio and Motorola will be in the demo area, along with Chicago companies Cubii and Gramovox, offering hands-on experiences with the technology and an opportunity to network with others in the wearable and Internet of Things space.

"We have supported We Are Wearables Toronto and Tom's efforts from the beginning, and we couldn't be more excited to partner with Tom to host the event in Chicago," said Tory Patrick, Vice President of Uproar PR. "We hope to replicate the same success the Toronto event has achieved and look forward to becoming more involved in Chicago's booming tech community."
