This summer, Ad Age and BMF Media collaborated to develop and execute Ad Age House: Hamptons in Southampton, NY. Ad Age House has developed a reputation as an intimate gathering of thought leaders under one roof to explore current trends and forecast what’s to come across various industries and the theme this year was The Smart Home and the role technology plays in our private lives which partnered with the Internet of Things Consortium.
Held in a gorgeous estate in Southampton, the day opened with a farm to table lunch followed by a panel on The Future of the Living room which was led by the Google Product Lead, Ashwin Limaye and Annie Byron of Samsung that discussed how homes are becoming increasingly connected with a central hub. Other topics covered were on Health, Wellness and Tech that had insight from Michael Wu of Sleep Number and Peloton and Voice Activation within the home.
Other sponsors on hand included Porsche who showcased their new Mission E model, Dockers that presented their new smart pants, Sleep Number who demonstrated their smart bed, and Samsung which previewed their latest SmartThings Hub.
