ANGA Cable Show speeds up: already 90% of exhibition space sold
Date: Mon, 01/11/2010 - 15:05
Strategy Summit and International Broadband Summit with top level representatives from the telecommunications and media industry
Four months before its opening, ANGA Cable, Europe’s leading Trade Fair and Congress for Cable, Broadband and Satellite is nearly fully booked. The organizer has received more than 300 exhibitor registrations – demand for floor space is higher than that of the previous year at the corresponding point in time. The registrations already account for more than 90 percent of the available floor space.
ANGA Cable Show will take place 4 - 6 May 2010 and comprises an exhibition and an international congress. The organizer, who is not tied to any exhibition site, has opted once again for the Cologne Fairground in 2010. In 2009 there were 383 exhibitors and more than 13,600 trade visitors from over 69 countries. 42 % of the visitors travelled to ANGA Cable from abroad.
Dr. Peter Charissé, Managing Director, ANGA: “We are pleased with the high demand for floor space at this early point in time and we are delighted to welcome several new exhibitors. Also, a number of long term customers will again increase their floor space. This means that we are reaching the capacity limit of our fair hall in Cologne. Our event has a clear focus on the growing industry sector “broadband” (cable, fibre and satellite) which pays off even in an overall difficult economic environment. The bookings show that in 2010 ANGA Cable will again stake out its position as leading industry market place in Europe.”
The highlights of the congress which takes place alongside the exhibition are the German Strategy Summit and the International Broadband Summit. Participants will include top level representatives from Alcatel-Lucent, Cable Labs, Cisco, Deutsche Telekom, Eutelsat, Kabel Baden-Württemberg, Kabel Deutschland, Liberty Global, Motorola, NetCologne, ProSiebenSat.1, SES Astra, Unitymedia, YouSee, and ZDF. All 20 congress events will be translated simultaneously (German/English).
The complete congress programme will be published in February. Congress tickets for the complete strategy and technology programme (including the exhibition) cost 180 Euro; tickets also covering the evening event “ANGA Cable Night” cost 240 Euro. The “Technology Ticket” which covers attendance of the technology panels and entrance to the exhibition costs 90 Euro. Entrance to the exhibition costs 20 Euro. All prices quoted include VAT. Online registration for visiting the exhibition and the congress has started (www.angacable.com).
