Los Gatos, CA, May 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stringify announced today that Dave Evans will participate as a speaker at Parks Associates’ 21st-annual CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference, held May 23-25 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. CONNECTIONS™ includes more than 700 executives and focuses on ways to engage consumers and grow revenues in the converging IoT industries, including smart home, connected health, and mobile and entertainment ecosystems. 

Dave Evans, CTO of Stringify, will participate in the session Smart Home Platforms: Revolutionizing the Consumer Experience on Thursday, May 25 at 11:45 a.m. The interactive panel session, moderated by Tom Kerber, Director, IoT Strategy, Parks Associates, examines strategies to align user experiences with expectations while unlocking additional value through connected IoT platforms. 

“Considering 26 percent of U.S. broadband households own a smart home device, and 11 percent of U.S. broadband households own a smart thermostat, the Internet of Things offers tremendous potential, but it's only when you remove the barriers to innovation that innovation flourishes. Stringify removes these barriers so users can focus on what really matters - building great experiences and making technology work for you,” said Evans. 

The conference also features keynotes by executives from Comcast, Cox Communications, Intel, and Vivint Smart Home, as well as new research from Parks Associates. Sessions will provide insight into critical issues including consumer privacy, interoperability, partnerships, platform integration, big data, personalization, and new distribution models. 

“For over 20 years, CONNECTIONS™ has brought industry players together to address challenges, opportunities, and growth areas for the smart home and connected consumer industries,” said Elizabeth Parks, Senior Vice President, Parks Associates. “We look forward to having Stringify join us at the event to provide insight into these topics.”
