SCTE/ISBE has quickly pivoted its annual Cable-Tec Expo conference to a digital event. Comcast, Charter and Cox will sponsor the event, which will be free to attendees.
Late last month, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers announced the cancellation of their physical event, with Denver’s Colorado Convention Center configured as temporary hospital space for a potential COVID-19 spike through the remainder of 2020.
What SCTE/ISBE calls “the educational heart of the show,” the Fall Technical Forum, will draw on a record 267 abstracts, exploring artificial intelligence, operational transformation, advancements to cable’s 10G platform, lessons learned from COVID-19, and more.
In addition to the Fall Technical Forum, Expo 2020 will feature a general session, future-focused presentations in the Imagine Zone, an interactive exhibitor gallery, and the annual SCTE/ISBE awards celebration.
“Cable-Tec Expo plays a vital role for the industry We’re looking forward to expanding its reach in 2020 with a fully immersive, interactive virtual format,” said Tony Werner, president of Technology, Product, Xperience at Comcast Cable. “Cable-Tec Expo gives professionals in our industrya platform to share their insights, learn from one another and allied industries, and shape the future in an increasingly connected world. We’re confident this year will be no exception.”
