Vuzix Corp. will attend and showcase its products at the Wearable and Flexible Technologies World 2014 Conference in China on May 14, company officials said.

The Henrietta company plans to exhibit its M100 Smart Glasses and M2000AR waveguide-based HD eyewear product at the conference. Daniel Cui, vice president of business development, is slated to give a keynote speech and sit on a panel as event chairman.

"The WFTW 2014 is really the first time that we have pushed ourselves into the China marketplace, and we are very excited by the opportunity," said Paul Travers, president and CEO of Vuzix, in a statement. "China offers a huge potential on many fronts and the numbers indicate that there is a big push for wearable technology and augmented reality in China.

“The conference will be a great platform to interact with our international partners and with potential customers."

The wearable device market is predicted to reach $30.2 billion by 2018, a report by BCC Research LLC states.  In addition, the number of wearable devices on the market is expected to reach 177 million worldwide by 2018, according to an Ernst & Young report.
