Organizers of SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo have named Kevin Hart, executive vice president and chief product and technology officer at Cox Communications, program chair for next year’s event. The association expects to hold next year’s event, scheduled for October 11-14, 2021 in Atlanta, as an in-person conference and exposition after this year’s Virtual Experience.
Hart, who served in the same position in 2013 and 2017, will be responsible for content development. “In the midst of the upheaval of 2020, one constant was how cable rose to the challenge of keeping us all connected,” he said. “The Expo 2021 program will arm our industry and our colleagues from other industries with the knowledge and ideation that will help us fulfill the promise of broadband in new ways that transform consumers’ lives.”
“The response to our Expo 2020 Virtual Experience shows the importance the industry places on Cable-Tec Expo as a source of technical and business insights,” said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE•ISBE. “Working together with Kevin and the Program Committee, our Board of Directors, and our industry association brethren, we look forward to restoring and extending the impact of Expo’s on-site presence next year, while incorporating virtual elements that prove successful this year.”
