Three days of immersive engagement with informative and inspirational general session content, best practice sharing roundtable discussions and structured connections with manufacturers and integrators proved transformational for most of the 80 progressive builders in attendance.
Builders headed back to their offices with a clear understanding that technology is a key weapon in their arsenal as they fight for market share with used homes and for the business of two huge market cohorts—the Millennials and Baby Boomers.
Indeed, most builders who attended now believe some level of home automation and interactivity should become standard in their homes and that they need multiple well-merchandised upgrade paths from the base offer to appeal to a variety of buying personae.
According to the Summit Guest Survey fielded after the event, 98% or more of guests agreed:
I got information and advice that will develop and improve my tech strategy
I now get that a TecHome is about more than electronics
We’ll be including more technology as standard in our homes
We’ll be developing strong upgrade paths for home tech
I made valuable business contacts with peers and vendors
