Cable-Tec Expo: SCTE•ISBE Creates Track Tailored for Smaller Operators

SCTE•ISBE, with input from the American Cable Association and the National Cable Television Cooperative, said it has created a special track for this year’s Cable-Tec Expo in Denver that is tailored for execs and staff of small- and mid-sized cable operators.

The organizations said the “Experience” for that group includes a mix of seminar activities, VIP seating, workshops, and other events during the event, which runs from October 17-20 at the Colorado Convention Center.

Among specifics, the Experience will include an NCTC member gathering on October 17; an ACA State of the Industry/Washington Update on Oct. 19; and an Innovation Theater in the Exhibit Hall to discuss issues impacting small-/medium-sized market operators and members;

Additionally, there will be VIP seating for the Opening General Session the morning of October 18, preferred seating at the Annual Awards Luncheon later that day, and attendance at the ribbon-cutting ceremony opening the Exhibit Hall. Also on tap is a guided tour of the exhibit hall, conducted by NCTC and ACA guides, and a private demo of the new “3D Cable World NetworkSim” learning environment at the SCTE•ISBE CORTEX Expert Development System Lounge.

“In our discussions with ACA and NCTC, it was clear that there were ways in which we could enhance the Expo experience to support their members’ goals,” Terry Maloney, vice president, marketing for SCTE•ISBE, said in a statement. “The program that we’ve put together will help those members zero in on the most appropriate educational content, optimize their time on the show floor, and hear exclusive presentations that are geared toward their issues.”
