Consumer Technology Hall of Fame

April 16, 2024 | Washington, D.C

The Consumer Technology Hall of Fame is a prestigious awards program that honors innovators who have made significant contributions to consumer technology.

Launched in 2000, past inductees have advanced how we live, work and play, including the developers of iTunes, the creator of Bluetooth, the co-inventor of the Roomba, the founder of RCA — the U.S.’s first radio company — and more. Each CT Hall of Fame class welcomes a new group of inventors, engineers, business leaders, retailers and journalists.

We are looking forward to recognizing the next class of honorees this spring as part of CTA’s Digital Patriots Dinner in Washington, D.C.
