Service providers, content creators, and platform developers attend CONNECTIONS™ Summit to discuss challenges, opportunities in connected home

Parks Associates today announced the agenda and speakers for CONNECTIONS™ Summit at CES, January 8 at 2013 International CES in Las Vegas, which will analyze the impact of new IP platforms on entertainment, advertising, energy, and tech support services. This firm's research finds 25% of U.S. broadband households have a smart TV and almost 33% have a tablet. The rapid adoption of connected devices is changing consumer habits in video viewing and home management while opening numerous opportunities for companies in the connected-home ecosystem.

"New consumer habits emerging from IP devices are forcing service providers, retailers, and manufacturers to expand their current business strategies," said Stuart Sikes, president, Parks Associates. "CONNECTIONS Summit™ focuses on these challenges, with over 25 industry leaders discussing solutions for the connected home, case studies of new deployment strategies, and consumer research trends."
