European Cable to Bring Olympic Spirit to Cable Congress in Amsterdam

(Brussels, 13 February) – Citius, Altius, Fortius, Latin for Faster, Higher, Stronger, has long been the motto to describe the great feats of athleticism seen at the Olympic Games. With the Winter Olympics now underway in Sochi, and ahead of its annual flagship gathering, Cable Europe, the trade association for the European cable industry, is proud to celebrate its role in driving faster speeds, access to higher-quality content and services, and a stronger competitive environment for European consumers.

With 69% of attendees at C-level, Director and Board Level, Cable Europe’s Cable Congress, taking place in Amsterdam from 12-14 March, is recognised as the leading conference dedicated to the cable and media industries in Europe. Yet the Netherlands won’t have to wait until Cable Congress to experience some of the best the industry has to offer – while Dutch ice skate champions Sven Kramer, Ireen Wüst, Michel Mulder and Stefan Groothuis win gold after gold, cable’s multi-screen products are bringing all of the Olympic excitement to fans whenever and wherever they want it.

Cable Europe Executive Chairman Matthias Kurth commented: “Like Olympic athletes, cable is always looking for an edge on the competition. Following years of investment in fibre-rich high speed networks, cable operators turned a long-standing speed advantage into a major driver of growth for its core product bundle – digital television, internet and telephony. Cable is now, as the established leader in connectivity, embracing its role in delivering high-quality programming to consumers on demand and on multiple screens. In Amsterdam, we’ll hear more about cable’s enviable position as the bridge between entertainment and consumers, and how content and competition are driving growth and strategic change in the years to come.”

The 2014 Cable Congress programme will feature the launch of new industry data and trends, including new statistics from IHS Screen Digest, the presentation of the Cable Europe awards recognizing industry innovation and achievement, and an impressive line-up of executives across cable, content, technology and new media. Highlights include:

  • BBC World News Presenter Babita Sharma as Master of Ceremonies
  • Keynote speech by Josh Sapan, President & CEO of AMC Networks
  • CEO panels featuring Michael Fries, Liberty Global, Rosalia Portela, ONO, Andrew Barron, Com Hem, Carsten Dilling, TDC, Rene Obermann, Ziggo, and Manuel Cubero, Kabel Deutschland
  • Views on technology from leading CTOs Paul Hendriks, Ziggo, Balan Nair, Liberty Global, and Lorenz Glatz, Kabel Deutschland
