August 28, 2015 – Connected+ (formerly Home Connect) has announced its 2015 speaker lineup.

Over 30 experts and leaders in their field will be making appearances at the Toronto event, tailored to meet the industry’s need for a “unified and collaborative forum, that paves the way to smart home success,” Connected+ says.

These include We are Wearables founder Tom Emrich, President & CEO of Continental Automated Buildings Association Ronald Zimmer, Nanoleaf’s Gimmy Chu, Jason Falbo from Mircom and our own Paul Grossinger of Annex Business Media, among many others.

From wearables, home automation, smart security, smart energy, or even connected health, Connected + says it promises a 360 degree view on the industry.

Frost & Sullivan predicts that the market opportunity for connected homes, work and cities could represent $731.79 billion by 2020. By this same year, it is estimated that 26 billion devices will be connected, while some have estimated that this number will be closer to a 100 billion.

The second edition of this two-day conference offers sessions, an exhibition and technical workshops.

The event takes place Sept. 28-29, 2015 at the MaRS Discovery District.
