Australia's first Intelligent Home Show

The Information Age will change our lives in many ways over the next few decades, most significantly in the way our home environment will change to support our lifestyle. Almost every home will benefit in myriad ways and home owners will be able to create unique personal living, recreational and working spaces. Of course the most difficult thing will be understanding the breadth of the offerings of the convergent technology sector, and it is hence significant that Australia's first exhibition focussing entirely on digital lifestyle in the home opens on October 15.
