SILVERS SUMMIT TO DEBUT AT THE 2009 INTERNATIONAL CES

Oct 08, 2008

To showcase the demand for advanced technologies for the boomer market, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® today announced the first annual Silvers Summit Exhibition and Conference to be held at the 2009 International CES®. Produced by CEA, the 2009 International CES, the world’s largest tradeshow for consumer technology, is scheduled January 8-11, 2009, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Senior consumers are a booming market segment looking for the latest technologies and innovations that add value to their lives,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, events and conferences, CEA. “We are thrilled to welcome the Silvers Summit to the 2009 International CES, and look forward to the dynamic conference sessions and exhibits focused on this important consumer group.”

The Silvers Summit one-day conference will take place on January 10, 2009, with support from partners including AARP, Microsoft, Clarity, the Center for Aging Services and Technologies (CAST) and Continua Healthcare. The full-day conference will feature insight from developers, policymakers, service industries and the media – all focused on the boomer market segment and how to better connect with the growing demographic. Registration is free for 2009 CES attendees.

Morning conference speakers include Mary Furlong, founder of ThirdAge, president and CEO of Mary Furlong Associates, who will explore the lifestyle and dynamics of senior consumers, and Dr. Gary Small, director, UCLA Center on Aging, who will explore the growing brain fitness market. Afternoon sessions will focus on consumer-driven healthcare and the CE device market. Speakers include Eric Dishman, Intel Fellow, director Digital Health Group of Intel, as well as Don Jones, vice president, Health & Life Sciences, Qualcomm, who will discuss new innovations in wireless bandages and pills. Additional speakers include Dr. Majd Alwan, director of CAST, who will discuss innovative ways to effectively monitor elderly relatives, and Esther Dyson, journalist, entrepreneur, philanthropist, Edventures, who will explore trends in personal healthcare information. For a full list of speakers and sponsors, visit SilversSummit.com.

The Silvers Summit exhibition at the Sands Expo and Convention Center will showcase the latest high-tech gadgets, brain games, consumer medical technology and media that keep “silvers” engaged, entertained, connected and healthy. Premiere sponsors include Center CAST, Clarity, Clear Sounds, Continua, Dakim, Electronic Arts (EA), HeartMath, Microsoft, Myine and Posit Science.

“Despite conventional wisdom that keeps manufacturers focused on the young consumer, the boomer generation is equally interested in electronics. The Silvers Summit is a great opportunity for the technology industry to find out what makes the global boomer generation tick and how to sell to them,” said Susan Ayers Walker, co-founder of the Silvers Summit.

“It’s clear to me that technology is the magic ingredient that will help the world’s aging populating live richer, more productive and healthier lives,” said Robin Raskin, co-founder of the Silvers Summit. “The Silvers Summit provides a snapshot of some products and ideas behind the promises.”
