NORTH OLMSTED, OH--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2015) - As consumers continue to live in the digital age, the importance -- and prevalence -- of connected devices only continues to grow. That's also true in the home, with more and more spaces becoming smart and intuitive, as well. Moen, the #1 faucet brand in North America, is excited to discuss this growing demand for a connected living space at the first-ever Smart Kitchen Summit -- the first and only connected kitchen event to tackle the technology and design convergence that's changing how we eat, buy, store and interact with our food.

Moen will serve as both a sponsor and a speaker at the event. Jack Suvak, senior director of Consumer & Market Insights, will participate as a panelist, addressing the smart kitchen as a starting point for the smart home consumer. 

"The relevance of the digital home is something that Moen's been closely watching for a few years," explained Suvak. "Not only have we investigated how consumers interact with 'smart' items in their homes today, but we've also sought out where they'd like to see technology integrated within their dwellings in the future, like the kitchen. We're looking forward to coming together with other brands and individuals to discuss today's smart kitchen and how it will change the way this space is utilized."

The Smart Kitchen Summit will bring together start-ups, leaders and innovators for a day-long event on November 5, 2015 at Seattle's Sodo Park. The Smart Kitchen Summit is the premiere event from NextMarket Insights, founded by Michael Wolf, former VP of Research for GigaOM, Forbes writer and one of the industry's most well-known IoT and smart home analysts and advisors. The summit will bring together visionaries from the worlds of culinary, smart home, appliance, commerce and fitness to discuss the future of the most important room in the house.
