To bring together the world of entertainment, communications and the Internet, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) announced that INTX: the Internet and Television Expo will be held on May 5-7, 2015, in Chicago. This new live, interactive event will draw everyone from network operators and content creators to technologists and thought leaders to share ideas, showcase innovative services and plan the future.
INTX reflects the evolution and transformation of the NCTA’s The Cable Show and will focus on the digital media and entertainment economy, featuring multichannel video and broadband Internet providers, television creators and producers, online video distributors, digital technologists and start-ups, engineers and more. INTX will include some of today’s most respected thought leaders, all in a reformatted conference and exhibits dedicated to learning and idea sharing.
“Everything about media and communications is being reinvented: the way we watch, how we keep in touch, what we know, how we play. So now is a perfect time to reinvent the way we come together to learn, network and do business,” said Michael Powell, NCTA’s President & CEO. “Every day the digital landscape changes and the networks that enable it becomes more powerful. This new expo will highlight all of these new trends and voices in every corner of today’s digital economy.”
Jerry Kent, Chairman and CEO, Suddenlink Communications, and Alfred Liggins, CEO & President, Radio One and TV One, will serve as co-chairs for the inaugural expo.
