New York — The Anti-Defamation League’s National Consumer Technology Industry divisio
I’m writing this at 9:39 p.m. L.A. time on Tuesday night, right after the Consumer Electronics Hall of Fame dinner and induction ceremony at CEA’s Industry Forum event. I wasn’t planning any more coverage before my 4 a.m. wake-up call for my flight back to New York, but what I heard and saw tonight call for it.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.

Los Angeles – The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) predicts CE spending to increase 2.6 percent this holiday season — down from 4 percent growth in 2012, according to CEA’s 2013 holiday outlook released today at CEA’s Industry Forum, here.
Seventy-four percent of consumers planning to purchase gifts this holiday season intend to buy CE as gifts, allocating 33 percent of their overall holiday gift budgets to CE, according to CEA’s “20th Annual CE Holiday Purchase Patterns Study.”
Any panel named “Five Technologies To Watch” and mentions driverless cars, sensors on water bottles and surfboards, tracking your vitals with your smartphone, drones, and the Rosie the Robot character from “The Jetsons” has got to be entertaining.
It was also informative and, for more than a few retailers and manufacturers reading this, it may provide some actual product opportunities in the near future — or at least some food for thought.
Arlington, Va. – Consumers’ inclination to buy technology products hit a six-year high this month, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) reported.

CEA is also projecting a 4 percent increase in total retail holiday sales year over year, to $738 billion, covering the months of November and December.

Washington – More than one-third (36.1 percent) of consumers would like to receive a CE gift for the holidays, a new report shows.

But the survey, conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics for the National Retail Federation (NRF), also showed that consumers are cutting back their holiday spending from last year, with projected seasonal expenditures down 2 percent to an average of $737.95 per shopper.
