InfoComm 2018 will land in Las Vegas this year on 6-8 June at the Las Vegas Convention Center. New to the show is the Integrated Life programme, a one-day thought leadership event on 5 June focused on the crossover opportunities between the commercial and residential audiovisual markets.
In addition, the InfoComm 2018 exhibition floor will have an area devoted to Integrated Life solutions, showcasing smart lighting, sensor technology, building and home automation, voice control, integrated security, mobile AV and much more.
AVIXA, the producer of InfoComm shows around the world, has partnered with Parks Associates, an internationally recognised market research and consulting company specialising in emerging consumer technology products and services, to support the inaugural Integrated Life programme at InfoComm 2018. Parks Associates hosts CONNECTIONS Summits in the US and Europe, as well as Connected Health and Smart Energy Summits, attracting thousands of executives interested in gaining strategic insight into trends affecting today’s consumers.
Integrated Life at InfoComm 2018 sessions will address trends, technologies, business models and forecasts for the AV market through interactive panel discussions and presentations. They will cover an array of hotbutton topics, including the impact of artificial intelligence on consumer and commercial markets, voice-first products and the user experience, converging markets, and more.
Elizabeth Parks, senior vice president, Parks Associates, said: “Extending commercial and enterprise capabilities to the home is quite standard. Now, the reverse is also happening. Consumers want their tech benefits everywhere, but the majority do not want to be, nor are they capable of being, their own IT managers. Opportunities for extending commercial system knowledge to residential environments are many. Parks Associates is excited to work with AVIXA to explore and address cross-market opportunities for AV professionals.”
Jason McGraw, CTS, CAE, senior vice president of expositions, AVIXA, commented: “The way we use technology in our lives should be seamless; people depend on technology wherever they are – in their homes, classrooms and offices. The Integrated Life programme will bridge the gap between consumer and commercial by exploring how technology such as the Internet of Things, artifi cial intelligence, the cloud and more, affect our lives around the clock. Parks Associates is the perfect collaborator for this programme. We’re looking forward to delivering Integrated Life this June.”
