The Alliance's next Collaborative Research Planning Session will take place Oct. 3-4 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas in conjunction with the Connected@Home 2005 Conference & Expo, produced by CABA, and the 2005 Fiber-to-the-Home Conference & Expo.
During the meeting, alliance members and other attendees will hear the results of the alliance's new State of the Connected Home Market Research, the Alliance's comprehensive annual research study into the digital home market. Among other insights, the research will reveal what specific digital home products and services consumers want now.
After the research presentation, attendees will participate in a variety of ideation sessions during which they will work side-by-side with other attendees to apply what they've learned from the research to develop relevant and viable connected home product and service concepts for testing within the alliance's highly regarded collaborative research program. The alliance conducts various kinds of digital home research on an ongoing basis, providing key learnings to members and the industry.
Tickets to the meeting are complimentary for alliance members; a limited number of tickets are available for non-members for $395 each. To register for the alliance meeting, visit www.internethomealliance.com/events_mkting/industry_conference.asp.
