The National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) has confirmed that Michael Willner, vice chairman and CEO of Insight Communications, and Johnathan Rodgers, president and CEO of TV One, will co-chair The Cable Show ’09.
The Cable Show ’09 will be held April 1-3, 2009, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
The show will see the first-ever “Cable Connection Spring,” a week of activities in which a variety of additional cable industry meetings, events and conferences will be scheduled in conjunction with the trade show. Cable Connection Spring will run from April 1-6 in Washington, D.C. and will include CableLabs’ conferences and the SCTE’s Conference on Emerging Technologies (ET).
In March, the NCTA’s board of directors announced that it had approved a plan, which was co-developed with other cable industry associations, to schedule industry meetings and events at the same time during selected weeks in the spring and fall – called “Cable Connection Spring” and “Cable Connection Fall” (story here).
The participating groups include the NCTA, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE), The Walter Kaitz Foundation, Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT), Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing (CTAM), CableLabs, the Association of Cable Communicators (ACC), the Cabletelevision Advertising Bureau (CAB), The Cable Center, Cable Positive, Cable Pioneers, and The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC).
In the fall of 2009, CTAM Summit, SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, the Cable Center Hall of Fame Dinner and a CableLabs seminar will be among the events in Denver, beginning Oct. 25.
