GOOD NEWS! CCTA 2014 Meeting Advance Hotel and Registration Rates extended to January 17! (January 2014)

Due to challenges with weather delays and holiday schedules, we've extended the deadline for the considerably discounted advance hotel room rate of $199 per night (plus taxes and fees), AND special advance registration fees, through January 17. If you haven't already signed up, now is your chance to immerse yourself in the newest technology and latest critical updates in the field of cable and telecommunications (as well as the warm sunshine and welcoming hospitality of our host island, Puerto Rico!). You won't want to miss the year's most important meeting or the opportunity to connect with current industry associates, meet new entrants into the Caribbean market, and hear from some of the country's leading experts. But don't procrastinate, because the extended discounted rates offer ends on January 17... after which, the very attractive advance registration rates will be "adios" forever.

There was unanimous approval of this year's speakers and sessions, with "TV Everywhere" being the phrase most often heard. Four sessions were devoted to aspects of this topic, highlighted by presentations, demonstrations and discussions by cable operators, programmers, and technical experts. Other topics included security issues with digital cable systems, applications for photovoltaic power, and core fundamentals of service delivery. Another highlight of the Annual Meeting was Keynote Speaker Richard Dick of Development Consulting Center, who captivated the audience with his presentation on "The Winning Ways of Service Giants". We want to thank all speakers for sharing their expertise and viewpoints with Annual Meeting participants.
