2015 LIDT CONFERENCE PROGRAMS
What is LIDT? Living in Digital Times (LIDT) produces a four-day
showcase of products and conferences that look at new technology through
the lens of solving real people’s problems. We are proud partners of CEA®,
owners and producers of the International CES® in Las Vegas each January.
Who Attends: Industry thought leaders who want to see new products
in the context of doing business in the real world. Press, analysts, regulators
and legislators, real life practitioners, retail and distributors, manufacturers,
educators. It’s where leaders in consumer electronics champion innovation.
For 2015, the International CES will expand into the Sands Expo to
accommodate emerging technologies and the hottest trends that will shape
the technology industry. Join LIDT and their complete event portfolio to
showcase the most celebrated and trending technologies.

Fitness Tech
The pace of innovation in the Digital Health arena
exceeds all other areas of tech innovation. The Digital
Health Summit focuses on the intersection of technology,
health and wellness. You’ll hear solutions for diagnosing, monitoring, and treating a variety of illnesses, from
obesity to asthma, from poor vision or hearing to high
blood pressure. Learn about gamification and explore new
breakthroughs in personalized medicine. Hear how telemedicine, robotics, gene sequencing, real-time medical
monitoring, and smart wearables are changing healthcare. The doctor is now literally “in your pocket.”
Goodbye, digital couch potatoes. Today there are
hundreds of ways to use technology to make your
workouts and outdoor activities more fun, more
effective and safer. Whether you’re summiting K2,
taking a leisurely bike ride, diving the deep seas, or just
watching your caloric intake, fitness has gone high-tech.
The quantified-self movement is helping individuals
do everything from improve their ski stances to avoid
debilitating injuries. At Fitness Tech, you’ll see the
breadth of tools and services for the fitness enthusiast

STATS FROM LIDT 2014
Lifelong Tech
It’s a new market with new opportunities. Our life
expectancy is longer than any previous generation. We
know more about how to keep healthy through diet,
exercise and preventative medical care than ever. Hear
from the new generation of adults who have turned the
conversation about “retirement” which literally means
backing off, to one of thriving and engaging. It’s a new
mindset and a new highly lucrative marketplace.
One of the main catalysts for this revitalization is technology. Brain training, genomic predictions, smart home
control, telepresence, gesture and haptic technology,
universal design, social networking, contextually aware
devices, video conferencing with the grandkids, or driving a semi-autonomous car, this generation of adults are
taking full advantage of the digital age. And the smart
entrepreneur will be right there alongside this affluent,
engaged market delivering them the services, products
and software they need. Join us as we explore the best
market that’s never existed before.

Family Tech Summit
The family that techs together stays together. From
communications to homework, from cooking to
entertainment, tech has become the sidekick to today’s
busy families. This year the Internet of Things where
we’re connected to everything from our thermostats to
our door locks is taking center stage along with mobile
devices, wearables, health and beauty, and Dad’s
coolest tools.

TransformingEDU
Technology is disrupting education as we know it, with
the web as a repository for our cumulative information
and misinformation. Prompted by a transition in job
skills required for the 21st century, the ability to
personalize education and the rising costs of education,
we are at a juncture unlike any other. We’ll explore
the dynamic environment that is dependent on mobile
technology, entrepreneurial educators, massively
open online courses and cloud-based tools. The rise in
entrepreneurial ideas to create a 21st century campus
involves everything from using augmented reality and
3-D printing to mobile devices, digital text and universal
affordable online education. We’ll explore virtual
simulations, course management and creation systems,
mobile field work, enhanced whiteboard experiences,
social networking, entrepreneurial courses and digital
portfolios. Get an inside look at the latest high-tech
education companies, hear from the top thought leaders
in education and find out how your company can join this
lucrative evolution of learning.
