BLUETOOTH, VOICE-CONTROL & NEW CONSUMER ELECTRONICS TRENDS AT CES
This week we’re heading to the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which offers show-goers a first-hand and interactive look into the industry’s newest developments and innovations.
Last year we saw many introductions of products in the wireless technology, Bluetooth-enabled and voice-control categories. These trends are expected to continue their momentum throughout 2018, remaining top of mind for both consumers and incentive marketers. In fact, according to a recent study by Zion Market Research, the global smart home market is expected to exceed $53 billion dollars by 2022; growing at a CAGR (compounded annual growth rate) of roughly 14.5% over the next five years.
We’re so excited to see what this year’s CES brings to continue this trend…and beyond…so we’re sending our executives out to Vegas to check out the latest and greatest products! Many of our brand partners are exhibiting at the show and we’re eager to see what they’re bringing to market, so that soon we can deliver these latest innovations to our rewards programs!
