New York, NY (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
Hold on to your fedoras. The Baby Boom is running as scheduled and causing ripples as it does. Mobility, communications, safety and medical needs for an aging population are all invigorating the consumer electronics community. They will play an important part in developing the innovative technologies: body monitoring, robotics, telemedicine, augmented reality, hearing and vision assistance and even high tech buildings and facilities to accommodate the changing demographic.
Now in its 5th year, the Silvers Summit, a technology conference and exhibit held during International CES in Las Vegas, has been at the intersection of technology and the aging population. For the January 2013 conference, Living in Digital Times, the parent company, is proud to announce this year’s co-producers of the show.
Shana Duthie and Michaela Sweatt have decades of experience with this market. Duthie is focused on growing and defining the aging marketplace, mhealth, and the lifestyle product category for emerging technology products. She is also the Vice-Chairperson for The Aging Technology Alliance. Sweatt has years of experience creating customer-focused cultures within cutting-edge technology companies. “There are 100 million older adults who will need some sort of technology to help them better enjoy their quality of life. This is a huge opportunity for the technology industry. The Silvers Summit, located in the midst of the world’s largest electronics show, is the perfect place to get up to speed,” said Robin Raskin, Founder of Living in Digital Times, whose company puts on the Silvers Summit.
“We’re all about fostering awareness, benefits and value of products and services for our aging society,” said Duthie, whose company, NutureConnect offers a shopping solution for the aging tech marketplace.
The Silvers Summit is scheduled for January 9, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. To find out about exhibiting, speaking and sponsorship opportunities contact: Sduthie(at)nutureconnect(dot)com or robin(at)robinraskin(dot)com
