Research firm announces topics for CONNECTIONS™ Summit at CES: Smart Home Business Models and Strategies

Parks Associates today announced the topics and call for papers for the 14th annual CONNECTIONS™ Summit: Smart Home Business Models and Strategies, taking place January 7, 2020, on the first day of CES® 2020 in Las Vegas. The event features sessions on smart home, sales channels, connected health, and home security and will conclude with a networking reception where analysts, session speakers, and VIP CES attendees mix to discuss the state of the market.

“Forty-three percent of US broadband households plan to buy a smart home product in 2019, but many markets have struggled to transform this interest into actual sales, specifically among new buyers,” said Elizabeth Parks, President, Parks Associates. “Many of the most important innovations in the smart home in 2019 and looking ahead to 2020 focus on opening new channels and creating new experiences that will move consumers through the buyer’s journey. At CONNECTIONS™ Summit, Parks Associates analysts and smart home executives will explore the latest innovations and analyze the keys to success in 2020.”

Early CONNECTIONS™ Summit sponsors include Alarm.com, Sprosty Network, and Trusource Labs.
