Arlington, Va. — The Z-Wave Alliance is sponsoring a new pavilion called The Green Tech Zone that will debut at Electronic House Expo (EHX) Fall 2008, being held Nov. 4-7 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif.
The Consumer Electronics Association’s (CEA) TechHome Division, which produces the show, reports that the Z-Wave Alliance plans to use the zone to demonstrate complete solutions for home energy conservation made up of products from its members.
“The demonstrations we will be showing will be made with commercially available products — not just futuristic ‘pilot program’ products,” said Mark Walters, chairman of the Z-Wave Alliance. “By using products that can be delivered today, Z-Wave Alliance members will demonstrate how to respond to new opportunities, which in turn moves the whole industry forward.”
In addition to the product demonstrations, “industry leaders” will also be on hand to present a series of training sessions on emerging green technologies and changes to consumer behaviors.
“Energy costs are on the mind of all consumers and, therefore, are an important consideration for dealers and integrators of consumer electronics. Demand is growing for ways to reduce energy consumption and this is a compelling way to educate our core audience,” said Jim Wagner, general manager, EH Events. “Green technology is an important trend for our attendees. We’re delighted to announce this partnership with the Z-Wave Alliance and appreciate the leadership position they are taking on this important issue.”
CEA said EHXwill draw 7,000 attendees and 175 exhibiting companies. Registration can be done online at www.ehxweb.com or by calling 1-800-315-1581.
