CONNECTIONS™ pre-show research workshops focus on Connected CE, Smart Energy, and Mobile Technology

Parks Associates today announced the agendas for three research workshops, focusing on cloud-based innovations, smart energy, and monetization strategies for mobile technologies. The research firm will host these workshops on June 28, prior to the start of CONNECTIONS™: The Digital Living Conference & Showcase.

CONNECTIONS™ will take place June 28-30 at the Santa Clara Convention Center and focuses on the impact of the cloud on consumer markets, including mobility and communications, entertainment and content, connected consumer electronics, and value-added services such as energy management and tech support services.

By 2015, there will be 90 million U.S. broadband households and 60 million households with a home network, up from 77 million and 42 million in 2010, respectively. Widespread broadband adoption is creating new markets for advanced entertainment, energy management, and mobile content platforms and solutions.
