"Cable's revolution is opening the gates for cross-industry collaboration that will change the way consumers experience the world around them," said Chris Bastian, senior vice president, engineering and CTIO of the SCTE/ISBE. "Expo 2020 is at the intersection of cable innovation, applied science and business opportunities. It's breaking new ground by giving thought leaders from inside and outside of the cable industry a platform to showcase their work and a forum for ideation that will lay the foundation for future innovation."
