Each year the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ recognizes groundbreaking innovations in consumer gadgets with its CES Innovation Awards, presented each January during  CES®.

Many of this year’s CES Innovation Award winners involve food-related technology—think The Jetsons’ kitchen. We want food retailers to be able to experience some of these new innovations before they become common place in the household. That’s why will be showcasing several of the CES Innovation Award winners in the FMI Connect Tech Zone in June.

Come see and take stock of the exciting new technologies that consumers will have in their kitchens and homes in the near future. For example, test out a solar-powered oven (GoSun Grill) or the innovative new water and air purifiers (Coway). We’ll also showcase a SmartThings Hub (Samsung) that connects all the smart devices in your home and lets you control them remotely.

Visit the Tech Zone during FMI Connect and test out the gadgets of the future.
