We finally have the preliminary schedule posted on The Cable Show website. More details about The Cable Show will be added as they come in. Expect a lot more information to come in January.   Don’t forget that The Cable Show is also a part of Cable Connection.

Some highlights from the schedule include:

  • CableCares is coming back and there will be events on March 31 and April 1 that you can participate in.
  • Opening General Session will be at 3 pm on April 1.
  • NCTA Vanguard Awards will be a reception at 3pm on Friday, April 3 at 3pm.
  • The Cable Show will close with the ever popular Battle of the Bands on Friday.

For those not familiar with Battle of the Bands or BoB, BoB is a charity fundraiser that we held last year. Proceeds raised from the event went to CableCares to benefit local New Orleans charity. Due to tremendous demand, we are bringing back BoB and will be donating proceeds from the event to a soon to be announced DC charity. More information on BoB will come shortly.  Here’s who came in the top three positions at last year’s BoB:

Xpanded Bandwidth of Cox Communications. Winner of The Battle of the Bands Charity Fundraiser.

Xpanded Bandwidth of Cox Communications, won the Battle of the Bands competition.

The Paul Allen Band. Presented by Charter Communications.

The Paul Allen Band rocked its way into second place.

The Frontline of Charter Communications.

The Frontline locked up the third spot.

Michael Willner, CEO of Insight Communications, was recently interviewed by CableFax Daily’s editor, Amy Maclean on the shape of the cable industry and his feelings on Cable Connection.

From the article:

AM: You’re chairman of The Cable Show ’09. It will be during the inaugural Cable Connection week. How do you think this consolidation of events will work out?

MW: It has to work out. The industry is a different industry than it was when all these things got started. There are fewer companies that serve many subscribers. There just needed to be a rationalization of all this travel that was taking place. We looked for ways to do it that will not detract from the contributions these various organizations are making to the industry. We just needed to be more rational about how they do it.

What do you think about Cable Connection? Are you planning on attending Cable Show ’09 and other Cable Connection activities?

UPDATE: Some minor adjustments were made to the schedule. The schedule is now up to date as of 10/06/2008.

Cable Connection- Spring schedule is finally out, though changes may be made it to the closer we get to April 2009. Registration for The Cable Show ’09 and other events will open in November 2008. Call for Speakers and Technical Papers will also occur this fall. Just keep your eyes peeled on the Cable Show blog as we will announce those calls here.
