Annually, ACA Connects hosts its Summit in Washington, D.C. The event attracts nearly 300 attendees including executives from nearly 50 leading operators. We maximize our vendor partner experience by delivering four key benefits:
The Audience That Matters We deliver independent cable’s executive decision makers.
Exclusive Exhibit Hours Two blocks of time dedicated to exhibits so you don’t have to compete with sessions or other events.
Meaningful Conversations The Summit is intimate enough for you to have one-on-one dialog with customers and prospects.
Inclusive Networking Events Participating vendors are encouraged to mingle with operator attendees at two breakfasts, lunch, refreshment breaks and three evening receptions.
