Chief Information Officers and cable's IT executives will gather in Washington, DC at The Cable Show 2013 for the eighth annual CIO.IT program. More than 200 participants are expected to attend the program to compare notes on cable industry IT challenges, share best practices, and together enjoy and experience the many benefits of the industry's annual conference and international exposition. The Cable Show 2013, sponsored by the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), is scheduled for June 10-12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
The CIO.IT steering committee, comprising the industry’s top ranking CIOs, will be reviewing vendor/partner suggestions related to any of the following cable system and/or content provider issues:
Cable IT vendors and partners are invited to submit presentation proposals for brief, targeted, non-product-specific presentations that offer solutions to these and related issues.
Proposals will be evaluated by a representative panel of cable CIOs. Those that are awarded a presentation slot will enjoy the opportunity to present their solution in a competitive format during panel presentations for CIO.IT track attendees during the two-day program at The Cable Show. Based on the success of their actual presentations, panel presenters may have the opportunity to meet further with cable industry CIOs and IT executives to discuss their ideas in more detail. The Cable Show will publicize the panel presentations to trade and business news media.
Presentations flowing from proposals must be executed by a single presenter; completed within a period of 10-15 minutes; and may feature audio/visual elements such as video segments and/or PowerPoint slides. In the course of the actual presentations during the CIO.IT program, cable industry CIOs will comprise a board of reactors, pose questions of the presenters, provide feedback, and choose their favorite presentation.
Over and above the standard cost of registering for and attending The Cable Show 2013, there is no additional charge for submitting a proposal or participating in this competition program. All presenters that are selected, however, must register to attend the Show.
