Record-Breaking Results for Cable Congress 2013

Record-Breaking Results in 2013

This year Cable Congress welcomed over 850 senior-ranking attendees from 39 countries.

The high quality of attendees reflected a broad cross section of the industry, with 29% of delegates representing cable operators and service providers, 27% equipment and set top box vendors, 13% content providers. View the full attendee breakdown here.

Cable Congress 2013 came at a time of great activity within the sector and in a city where technology, media and entertainment are leading globally.

Both, Michael T. Fries, President and CEO of Liberty Global, and Neil Berkett, CEO of Virgin Media appeared at the event to talk about their views on the industry and the recently announced merger of the two businesses. Mike Fries, CEO of Liberty Global, told CNBC about plans to enter one of the most competitive and dynamic markets in Europe in an exclusive broadcast interview.

Cable Europe announced fresh data from IHS Screen Digest that showed 5.5% top-line revenue growth across Europe, representing nearly €1bn in new revenues for 2012.

The upward trend is explained by a shift towards digital for customers increasingly relying on the high speed fibre-rich broadband connections for which cable is known as well as the trend of increasingly accessing video content over cable’s high performance telecom networks. Guy Bisson, Research Director at IHS Screen Digest, broke down latest figures and leading trends in cable industry during a CNBC interview and explained why cable providers are extremely well-positioned to capitalize as the industry moves towards content provided over the internet.
