Textronics Inc CEO Stacey Burr will share the story of her start-up company's commercialization of electronic-textiles at the fourth annual Smart Fabrics conference, May 5-7, in Charleston, S.C.

Textronics Inc, is a leader in the development of wearable sensors for fitness and health monitoring. The company sells its patented sensors and markets its own line of clothes that monitor heart rate under the brand name NuMetrex.

Burr's presentation, “Insights into Health Sensor Clothing Commercialization,” will take place at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, May 5. The Smart Fabrics 2008 conference is being held at the DoubleTree Guest Suites in Charleston's historic district.

“As the first company to commercialize electronic textiles in a consumer garment, Textronics has played an important role in defining this emerging field and identifying market opportunities,” said Burr.

Her talk will address topics including how investors can help you grow, the importance of building the right team, finding partners and big customers, and identifying the right suppliers.
