Irvine, CA–Tricia Parks, founder and CEO of Parks Associates, will deliver the keynote address for the inaugural Insteon Development and Technology Conference to be held May 2, 2006, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. The conference is being held in conjunction with Parks Associates’ signature event, Connections: The Digital Home Conference & Showcase.
Parks will address the need for all companies–from silicon providers to consumer electronics manufacturers that are banking on a slice of the digital home market–to look at market opportunities beyond the living room.
“While companies are naturally acting to seize opportunities offered by a new round of entertainment options and benefits, there are also multiple opportunities beyond entertainment,” said Parks. “Long term winners will embrace technologies that fulfill consumers’ expectations for a truly connected home; one that includes but is not limited to networked entertainment and computing devices. This also represents an approach for the next several years for differentiation to consumers deciding which entertainment approaches to adopt.”
The cost is $750 for the conference and includes admission to day two of Connections. Online registration is available at www.parksassociates.com. Attendees need not be Insteon Alliance members.
