Welcome to the Connected Home Campaign Week
From Wednesday 2 September to Tuesday 8 September, techUK will be showcasing key insights and knowledge on the state of the Connected Home, ahead of the launch of the fourth State of the Connected Home report for 2020. Developed in partnership with market research firm, GfK, the report will be looking at the current consumer understanding of the connected home market, exploring 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.
Make sure you sign up to attend our launch event here. Industry experts will discuss the latest trends alongside GfK, techUK, and our Connected Home Working Group Chair Jay Chinnadorai.
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 2019 report.
