CONNECTIONS announces early Keynotes and Sponsors, featuring experts in Digital Living

Dallas TX February 9, 2006 — Parks Associates announced today the early sponsors and Keynote speakers for the tenth annual CONNECTIONS: The Digital Home Conference and Showcase, which will take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center, May 2-4, 2006.

Produced by Parks Associates in partnership with the Consumer Electronics Association, CONNECTIONS is the largest executive conference and showcase dedicated to advanced digital lifestyle solutions for residential and mobile environments.

This year’s conference topics include digital entertainment, mobile platforms & services, home networking & infrastructure, home management & digital health, and broadband & IP services. Recent research from Parks Associates finds that annual revenue from bundled services in the U.S. will reach $119.5 billion by 2010, as the landscape for residential services continues to show increasing convergence among previously disparate service sectors.
