ANGA Cable 2011 will take place 3 to 5 May, 2011 again in Cologne
ANGA Cable Show has managed to continue its success story in 2010 and closed with yet another record in exhibitor and visitor numbers yesterday. For the first time 15,000 trade visitors attended the Trade Fair and Congress for Cable, Broadband and Satellite, this signifies a 10 % growth compared to 2009. 395 exhibitors from 31 countries were present in Cologne, 383 in the previous year. At the same time, 1,500 telecommunications and media experts attended the congress which took place at the same time as the trade show.
With its outstanding success ANGA Cable has set best signs for further growth in the cable and broadband industry. “With their modern HFC networks, cable operators have a competitive broadband infrastructure. Deployment of the DOCSIS 3.0 standard allows bandwidths of over 100 Mbps. With this, we will lead the field for all kinds of imaginable services and programme offerings. Also, cable has the footprint, capacity and customer base to become the strongest force to drive digital offerings’ growth and innovation”, said Thomas Braun, President of ANGA Association of Cable Operators.
Herbert Strobel, Chairman of the Satellite & Cable Trade Association within the German Association of the Electrical and Electronics Industry ZVEI, was also highly pleased with the course of the show: “Again, taking stock of this year’s ANGA Cable is impressive: high-quality business contacts, high level of international exhibitors and visitors, and a truly upbeat, positive atmosphere. ANGA Cable has re-confirmed its leading position in Europe and will remain prime choice for the members of our trade association.”
