TWICE Retail Roundtable Discerns The Decade’s Best Growth Plays

LAS VEGAS — The consumer electronics
industry is entering the
second decade of the 21st century
bruised but certainly
not beaten.

Despite a lingering recession
that continues to
claim dealers of all sizes,
and the maturation of the
HDTV market that supported
them, new opportunities
abound in connectivity, wholehome
control, energy management and
the services to make them work.

Still, retailers face a sharp learning
curve to master the new skill sets
and must develop new business
models to deliver them.

Roundtable panel, held
last month during International
