ANGA COM ended with a record 450 exhibitors and 17,000 participants. Some 1,700 of the participants took also part in the accompanying congress programme. Thus, the trade show for Broadband, Cable & Satellite has increased last year’s participant numbers for the congress and the exhibition of 6 per cent.
Thomas Braun, President of the hosting ANGA Association of German Cable Operators, commented: “This year, ’ANGA Cable’ has become ‘ANGA COM”. The new name even better reflects our two thematic pillars, broadband and media. This was also clearly visible in the exhibition hall. In addition to the traditional cable and satellite technology, the roll-out of fiber, IPTV, Video on Demand, software solutions and consumer electronics have become integral parts of our exhibitors’ product range. We’re especially pleased with the success of the Connected Home special, which we organised in cooperation with the BITKOM association.”
Herbert Strobel, Chairman of the Satellite & Cable Trade Association within the German Association of the Electrical and Electronics Industry ZVEI is also very satisfied with the show: “Yet again, the event has proven an impressive success, with the consistent thematic evolution towards ANGA COM contributing to that. As the market place for network operators, suppliers and broadcasters ANGA COM will remain the industry highlight of the year for our manufacturers and systems providers.”
Dr. Peter Charissé, Managing Director ANGA COM: “Our latest ideas, the new ANGA COM brand and the new topic ‘Connected Media Home’ have taken off. What our 450 exhibitors put in place was top class. Each year, our visitor structure is becoming more diverse and increases in quality.”
ANGA COM 2014 will take place from 20 to 22 May 2014, again in Cologne (Germany).
