Parks Associates Hosts Tenth-Annual CONNECTIONS™ Europe Conference, 10-11 November, Amsterdam

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2015) -  Research firm Parks Associates will discuss the implications of the rollout of smart meters across Europe during the seventh-annual CONNECTIONS™ Europe - IoT: Connected Entertainment and the Smart Home[1], 10-11 November, at the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam. Deployments of these and other smart devices will increase consumer awareness of new smart home services, which will help drive the five-year (2014-2019) CAGR for adoption of smart home controllers in Western Europe to over 11%.

"Many European consumers have an energy tariff plan that provides a fixed monthly charge regardless of actual consumption. Smart meters can provide consumers much greater insight and awareness of their energy consumption, creating a market opportunity for energy-related smart products and services for the home," said Tom Kerber[2], Director, Research, Home Controls & Energy, Parks Associates. "At CONNECTIONS™ Europe, we will examine the progress of the smart home market as service providers and OEMs introduce new offerings and value propositions to consumers."

At CONNECTIONS™ Europe, industry leaders in the smart home market will join Kerber in the session "IoT: Adding Value to the Smart Home Experience"[3] on Tuesday, 10 November, 13:30, to examine emerging smart products and value-added services that enhance the consumer experience and expand the competitive landscape. Speakers Include:

  • Seb Chakraborty, CTO, British Gas Connected Homes
  • Kurt Hoppe, VP, Applications & Services, Prodea
  • Scott Hublou, VP of Global Connected Services, Salus
  • Joe Liu, CEO, MivaTek
  • Sebastian Popovic, CEO, Zipato
  • Gemini Waghmare, CEO, UXP Systems

CONNECTIONS™ Europe will feature keynotes from Icontrol Networks, Nest Labs, and Viacom International Media Networks. Sponsors[4] of the event include Icontrol Networks, AirTies, Alcatel-Lucent, Essence, Prodea, ROC-Connect, Tyco, ULE Alliance, UXP Systems, Z-Wave, ZigBee Alliance, MivaTek, and Zipato.
