PITTSBURGH, August 7, 2019 – Today, Competitive Carriers Association and ACA Connects announced a partnership surrounding CCA’s 2019 Annual Convention, taking place September 16-18 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence. As part of the partnership, ACA Connects will host its third 2019 Member Regional Meeting at the Convention on Tuesday, September 17. In addition, several CCA educational sessions will feature thought leaders representing both wireless and cable, and the show floor will include exhibitors and attendees from both industries.
The co-location will provide a unique opportunity for both associations to see and meet with innovators from converged technologies and learn how new technologies will drive service revenue to new heights. A more detailed schedule of events for CCA’s 2019 Annual Convention may be found here.
ACA Connects and CCA currently are working together in Washington, D.C., to promote the clearing of a large amount of spectrum for 5G use and the building out of fiber connectivity to rural cable operators. Partnering for the show is a natural outgrowth of an increasingly common relationship among CCA and ACA Connects members.
In a statement, CCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry said, “As network technology continues to evolve, the synergies among wireless, cable, fixed wireless and fiber are stronger than ever before. I am delighted to partner with ACA Connects for CCA’s 2019 Annual Convention and strongly believe the co-location of these two events will provide excellent opportunities for our collective members to network, share ideas, and learn from one another. Every provider will be impacted by the next-generation of 5G revolution!”
“ACA Connects is privileged to work with our friends at CCA and to join with them at this year’s Annual Convention,” ACA Connects President and CEO Matthew M. Polka said. “We work a lot together in Washington on many issues facing smaller communications providers, and this year’s show will be another example of that great partnership!”
