June 22, 2012: CABA to Hold Digital Home Forum

June 22, 2012
OTTAWA — The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) will be holding its next Digital Home Forum in San Diego on Oct. 11 and 12, 2012. The event, hosted by CABA member Qualcomm, will bring together leading companies dealing with the integration of home technologies.

“We are extremely pleased to offer the highest-quality information and research to attendees of our ongoing Digital Home Forum event series,” said Ronald J. Zimmer, CABA president and CEO. “The beneficial information and industry intelligence that CABA members and industry stakeholders will gain from this event will exceed any expense involved in attending.”

Industry stakeholders are invited to attend the forum on Oct. 11 to learn about current trends in the digital and connected home from a wide range of companies working in this space and explore future research opportunities. Results from the CABA research project “Impact of Smart Grid on Connected Homes” will be shared with delegates.

Participants in the CABA Research Program will share their research and insights, along with details about their current activities. CABA’s Research Program offers a range of opt-in technical and advisory research services designed to provide industry stakeholders with collaborative market research and R&D opportunities. Forum participants will be openly discussing their research strategies as they relate to the connected home sector and their respective organizations.

CABA’s Connected Home Council will also hold a meeting in conjunction with the forum on Oct. 12. The council examines industry opportunities that can accelerate the adoption of new home technologies, consumer electronics, and broadband services within the connected home market.

As an added bonus, attendees of both meetings will be invited as VIP guests of Qualcomm to attend the Miramar Air Show on the afternoon of Oct. 12. Delegates will get a police escort to a VIP tent with food and refreshments. The Miramar Air Show is an annual event held at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in the San Diego area. The event is one of the largest military air shows open to the public, with total annual attendance estimated at 700,000.

Registration for the event is available at www.caba.org/digital-home-forum.
