What's Happening at Cable Show '09

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:
