                       New York City, NY, USA (November 1, 2013) -- Qaizar
                       Hassonjee, Vice President of Innovations at adidas Wearable
                       Sports Electronics, will be speaker at Golden Networking's

                       computing-conference.com), "Revolutionizing the Human
                       Experience Through Next-Generation Technology", to be held in
                       New York City, on November 7.

                       If you are looking for examples of wearable technology's real-world
                       uses, look no further than professional soccer, where players are
                       wearing sensor-embedded Adidas shirts that can measure
performance including heart rate, acceleration and deceleration, speed, and distance, and
send the details to coaches. The plan is to bring it to other sports soon. It's all part of a
soccer system that was first launched last year called miCoach Elite that has this year
been integrated league-wide by Major League Soccer in North America, which uses it in
games and during practice, and is also being implemented by other professional soccer
teams worldwide, although whether they use it in games or in practices depends on the
league.

Mr. Hassonjee was the co-founder and chief development & commercial officer of
Textronics Inc., Textronics is an electro-textile technology company that originated from
DuPont's textile fiber research effort and was recently acquired by adidas. Previously, Dr.
Hassonjee worked with DuPont and Invista™ (formerly DuPont Textiles and Interiors) for
over 14 years with assignments in R&D, Sales & Marketing, Sourcing and Management
roles.

Dr. Hassonjee has an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from LIT, India and
Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from City College, CUNY, NY. He also received his MBA
from the University of Delaware. He has written technical papers in major trade
publications and is co-inventor of several products and process technologies. He lives
with his wife and two sons in Chadds Ford, PA, USA.
