EXTON, Pa., Sept. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE), a subsidiary of CableLabs, today announced SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2021 will take place as a virtual experience this October due to the health and safety risks to attendees posed by the public health epidemic of COVID-19, the surge in the Delta variant, and curtailment on travel imposed by the US government for international travelers, and by some corporations for employee travel.

“Our industry rose to the challenge over the past year and a half to keep the world connected safely throughout the pandemic. We are continuing that pledge now by presenting Cable-Tec Expo as a virtual experience,” said Mark Dzuban, SCTE president and CEO. “As a virtual event last year, Cable-Tec Expo had the largest level of engagement we have ever seen and we look forward to that same level of connection, innovation, and education in October.”
“It’s been proven that whether in-person or online, Cable-Tec Expo truly brings the industry together,” said Phil McKinney, CEO of CableLabs. “We are looking forward to connecting safely with the individuals and organizations that genuinely care about our businesses and the industry at large. Our primary mission is to develop learning and technology that will innovate today’s broadband technology in a way that benefits all of our members and customers.”
Last year’s completely virtual event attracted more attendees and workshops than ever before. SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2021 will deliver a learning and networking experience unparalleled in the cable industry.
“A critical source of technical and business insights, Cable-Tec Expo 2021 virtual experience will serve as the platform to create new opportunities across industries, showcase cutting-edge new technologies and services, and gather invaluable business knowledge and policy expertise,” said Kevin Hart, 2021 Program Chair and EVP, Chief Product and Technology Officer, Cox Communications. “I am honored to lead the outstanding team that is creating engaging content and bringing together professionals virtually from within and beyond the industry for learning, networking and decision-making.”
