The American Cable Association Summit will take place March 13-15 at the Grand Hyatt in downtown Washington, D.C. The ACA Summit is for smaller, independent cable operators that seek a Washington, D.C., venue to share their public policy concerns and philosophy with those in power. This year’s event will mark the 19th ACA Summit.
The theme for the 2012 show, "Geared Up For Progress," underscores ACA’s commitment in 2012 and beyond to locating opportunities for public engagement on a number of critical issues, especially retransmission consent, broadband deployment and access to content on fair and reasonable terms.
Over the three days in Washington, hundreds of ACA members will participate in meetings on Capitol Hill in addition to public sessions on regulatory and legislative issues joined by insiders who will have all the key details. A lobbying preparation session, networking events, and an expanded exhibit hall for programmers, technology vendors, and service providers complete the Summit’s list of key events.
