The SCTE/ISBE said the CEOs of three policy- and tech-facing organizations will kick off the Innovation Theater component of this year’s Cable-Tec Expo in Atlanta, and shed some light on the issues affecting tier 2/3 cable operators and rural service providers.
The Innovation Theater kickoff panel, called Off The Beaten Path: Strategies For Success In Small, Midsize and Rural Markets, is set for Tuesday, Oct. 23. It will feature Shirley Bloomfield, CEO of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association; Rich Fickle, president and CEO of the National Cable Telecommunications Cooperative (NCTC); and Matt Polka, president and CEO of the American Cable Association (ACA).
“Small, mid-size and rural service providers are essential to fulfilling the promise of ubiquitous broadband coverage,” Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE/ISBE, said in a statement. “NTCA, NCTC, and ACA are well-positioned to share their members’ needs with the Expo audience, as well as how that translates into future technology roadmaps.”
Cable-Tec Expo 2018 is set for Oct. 22-25 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Pat Esser, president of Cox Communications, will keynote the show’s opening general session.
