We are the advocates for innovation.

Technology is about changing people’s lives for the better.

It’s about ideas, large and small, that keep us connected, that help us move, that spark even bigger ideas. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA)® convenes companies of every size and specialty in the technology industry to move us all forward.

CTA is the trade association representing the $505 billion U.S. consumer technology industry, which supports more than 18 million U.S. jobs.
