Consumer Storage will be a Key Factor in the Next Economic Recovery.

San Jose, CA, December 11, 2008 --(PR.com)-- The Eighth Annual Storage Visions Conference held at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada January 6 & 7, 2009 features great sessions on consumer applications and storage, as well as a Young User Panel.

Coughlin Associates predicts that consumer devices will be a key enabler of disruptive technologies shaping the next economic recovery. Furthermore these devices increasingly depend upon digital storage to provide their features and value.

According to Robert Thibadeau of Seagate Research, "Storage Visions offers a compelling proposition. I know of no comparable event for meeting old and new customers and partners. The 2009 Storage Visions Conference is a very cost effective way to meet the entire storage industry in one place and time."

On Tuesday January 6, 2009 at 4 PM the “I’m Your Future, Hear Me Roar” session will explore what late teens and early 20’s people want in digital storage and consumer electronics. This is an outstanding opportunity to find out from the most avid users of consumer products what they really want.
