European Cable Industry Spreads the Love in Digital Capital

(Brussels, 14 February) Cable Europe, the trade association for the European cable industry, today celebrates consolidation and the role it plays in building strong cable players, stimulating healthy infrastructure and promoting competition ahead of its annual flagship industry gathering.

In keeping with the spirit of Valentine’s Day and ahead of Cable Europe’s annual conference with 69% of attendees at C-level, Director and Board Level, Cable Congress, takes place in London from 5-7 March 2013.  We look back over the past decade at how successful pairings have resulted in the consolidation of the European cable landscape. Where Europe once boasted around 10,000 providers, today this number is closer to 7,000 stronger, more efficient and more competitive operators.

Yet, despite the wave of combinations in recent years, the cable industry still remains highly fragmented. It will need further consolidation to compete over the long term and to help meet Europe’s Digital Agenda policy objectives of increased connectivity for consumers.

Cable Europe Executive Chairman Matthias Kurth added:  “Cable’s investment in fibre- rich high speed networks plays an important if not sometimes invisible role in meeting the entertainment and connectivity needs of Europe’s sophisticated consumers. As the unique crossroads of technology and content that keeps us entertained, informed and connected, it’s entirely fitting that this year’s Cable Congress will take place in London, Europe’s undisputed Digital Capital and one of the most connected cities in the world.”

Cable Congress 2013 will feature the launch of new industry data with the contribution of fresh IHS Screen Digest data, the latest trends and an incredible line-up of industry all-stars across cable, content, technology and new media. Highlights include:

  • BBC World News Presenter Babita Sharma as Master of Ceremony
  • CNN anchor Becky Anderson’s exclusive interview with Liberty Global CEO Michael Fries
  • Keynote speech by Neil Berkett, CEO, Virgin Media
  • Ed Vaizey, MP & UK Minister for Culture, Communications & Creative Industries
  • CEO panel featuring Berit Svendsen, Telenor Norway, Rosalia Portela, ONO and Dana Strong, UPC Ireland
  • Lorenz Glatz, CTO, Kabel Deutschland

New content, programme updates and interviews are being added regularly to www.cablecongress.com and don’t forget that 22 February is the last day to submit nomination entries for Cable Europe’s 2013 Fellow and Innovation Awards.
