Dr Uday Phadke, Executive Chairman of AcceleratorIndia, and Chief Executive of Cartezia, will chair a session at the third annual Product Design & Innovation Conference, at the Oval Cricket Ground in London, on May 15th 2013.

The Product Design & Innovation conference aims to explore the latest trends and developments within industrial design, and speakers will include leaders in industrial design from prominent international brands.

Dr Phadke will chair the session on ‘Internet of Things: Designing Connected Objects’ with featured speakers Clive Grinyer, Director of Customer Experience at Cisco IBSG and Jamian Cobbett, Design Lead at Nike Digital Sport. Panellists for this session include Duncan Smith, Head of Products & Systems Division at Cambridge Consultants, Tej Chauhan, Founder of Chauhan Studio, Gus Desbarats, Chairman of Alloy and Director of the BDI Association, Alexandra Deschamps-Sosino, CEO of Designswarm and Pete Hamblin, Co-founder of Monokoto.

This engagement is a continuation of Dr Phadke’s leadership in the Internet of Things sector, including his curation of “RiffStream#London - Internet of Things SIG Event” in November 2012. RiffStream#London brought together a number of exciting companies to set the Internet of Things in a commercial context and to provide a framework for technology-led ideas to be coupled to real market opportunities and to furnish an environment where SME’s, corporates and investors could initiate business dialogues.
