PacketVideo, Siemens, and Technicolor early sponsors of Executive Conference

Parks Associates today announced the 6th annual CONNECTIONS™ Europe: Cloud Services, CE & Service Provider Strategies will be held November 8-9 at the Mövenpick in Amsterdam. The executive summit, with sponsors PacketVideo, Siemens, and Technicolor, focuses on the expansion of cloud, entertainment, and value-added services and the changing roles of service providers as households adopt connected CE.

"The average broadband household in Western Europe spent over €850 on CE products in 2010, and with 30-40% now owning a connected device, the window is open for a variety of new cloud, entertainment, and connectivity solutions," said Brett Sappington, Sr. Analyst, Parks Associates. "Future purchase intentions for connected TVs, tablets, and smartphones are strong in multiple countries, and we will see a steady rise in demand for video services on these platforms. CONNECTIONS™ Europe will focus on the opportunities in developing and bundling a variety of new value-added services to align with the needs and wants of the new broadband households in Europe."

CONNECTIONS™ Europe host Parks Associates will present new consumer data covering the major countries in Western Europe, including the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. Analysts will identify changes in the technology landscape and the influence of new entertainment and digital media services on business models and market strategies for a variety of ecosystem players.

The agenda for CONNECTIONS™ Europe will feature panel sessions with executives representing service providers, CE manufacturers, and content and distribution companies. Core topics:
