The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has announced new dates and a new location for SCTE Cable-Tec Expo2013—Monday through Thursday, Oct. 21-24 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
The change is intended to enable the industry to maximize participation in each of the largest fall showcases for cable technology in the United States and Europe. The move to October eliminates a conflict that had resulted from unprecedented changes in dates for several major European events.
“SCTE Cable-Tec Expo and the IBC conference and exposition in Amsterdam are the two must-attend fall events for cable executives,” said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE. “Rather than force participants and attendees to divide their focuses between two events and two continents, we’ve taken a flexible approach that puts the needs of the industry first.”
Kevin Hart, senior vice president and CTO of Cox Communications, serves as Program Committee Chairman for SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2013. Hart, a veteran of more than 20 years in the telecommunications and information technology industries, will leverage his unique background in IT, cable, telco and wireless to drive the expansion of Cable-Tec Expo educational content.
Information on sponsorship opportunities for SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2013 is now available from SCTE’s Heather Gosciniak at firstname.lastname@example.org. Exhibitor registration will begin shortly. The Cable-Tec Expo 2013 website—the primary resource for the call for papers, registration and the event agenda—will be live on Monday, Feb. 25.
The cable telecommunications industry’s largest engineering show, SCTE Cable-Tec Expo annually brings together experts from across the cable operator, programmer and vendor communities. The conference supports SCTE’s educational goals through technical workshops, hands-on, technology-focused exhibits and knowledge sharing with peers from throughout the industry.
