State of the Connected Home 2018 Report Launch

Join us for the launch of our inaugural annual State of the Connected Home 2018 report, Edition 2!

Industry experts will discuss the latest trends alongside GfK, techUK, and our Connected Home Working Group Chair Jay Chinnadorai. 

The report is looking at the current consumer understanding of the connected home market. Developed in partnership with market research firm, GfK, it explores the appeal and ownership of different categories of devices and makes recommendations to encourage further adoption in the UK. The research covers knowledge and understanding of categories and ownership of connected home products and services and main barriers to adoption.

The report launch will be an engaging interaction and exploration of the sector as a whole and what can industry, together with techUK, do to promote and encourage a value proposition for consumers, working alongside government on privacy and security. You can check out our State of the Connected Home report 2017
