(New York, NY) October 31, 2012 – Learn what today’s digital kids expect and what their families want to see at the Kids@Play and MommyTech Summits at the 2013 International CES®. These conference sessions bring together industry leaders to examine the epicenter of consumer technology as it shifts to the family consumer, discuss how to reach the coveted $2.1 trillion mommy audience and connect with kids who have grown up in a digital world. Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) ®, the 2013 CES is scheduled January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Produced by Living in Digital Times®, the Kids@Play Summit is scheduled for 9 a.m. and the MommyTech Summit is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Wednesday, January 9 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), 

“This year’s kids are digitally connected, almost at birth. Fifteen new tablet devices made expressly for kids are now on the market,” said Robin Raskin, founder, Living in Digital Times. “We’ll explore some of today’s hottest trends, from the rise in kids’ tablets to apps, books and virtual worlds.  Participating companies include a broad spectrum of influencers, from Lego and Leapfrog to new brands like Wanderful Storybooks and Wizards 101.” 

In the afternoon, MommyTech will heat things up with a discussion about how technology is changing the sex lives of women, the business of blogging and what it means to be a woman in the CE industry. Featured products include a bevy of smart solutions to mom’s most onerous problems, including remote home monitoring, e-wallets, new mobile devices and child monitoring.
