Brave New Business ModelsWednesday, March 6, 2013
Cable operators must now ensure they are best positioned to fulfill the needs of the digital consumer in this new world. Using yesterday’s version of the value chain will not help define a strategy for growth.
But the challenges facing established operators are many—weak economic climates, cross-sector competition from innovative start-ups, the ever-growing variety of new devices accompanied by exponential growth in data traffic, and the need to manage ever more complex, multi-service networks.
This keynote will provide a perspective on both the challenges and opportunities facing the cable industry, drawing on Accenture research which points to the likely innovations and the commercial opportunities that will open up as the digital consumer takes more and more control.

Financial Cable GrowthWednesday, March 6, 2013
Free flow conversation
The state of finance in cable plays a crucial role in the future of a business increasingly seen as competitive given the strategic nature of its investment choices which are yielding positive results. With the current economic climate and the associated challenges, the issue of state aid throughout European markets has created a debate about how to best generate investment for wider technology infrastructures. With opportunities for growth, consolidation and continued competitiveness vis-à-vis incumbent operators, finance is at the heart cable’s growth strategy.
Panel MembersJohn Hahn, Managing Director, Providence Equity LLP Marisa Drew, Managing Director, Co-Head of Global Markets Solutions Group, Credit Suisse
