Justification Letter
There’s no shortage of reasons why SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo® is a must-attend event for industry professionals, but if you’re required to show the value of your attendance, we have a justification letter with valuable information in a customizable format to get you started.

General business casual attire is acceptable and comfortable shoes are a must! Please keep in mind that meeting rooms can often be chilly so a sweater or jacket may be necessary. For any networking activities outside, please keep in mind the weather forecast for New Orleans.



SCTE•ISBE will soon provide a variety of New Orleans hotel options at discounted group rates through the Cable-Tec Expo® room block. These discounted room rates are only available when booking through the official Cable-Tec Expo® room block on the Cable-Tec Expo® website.

MCI USA is the official housing office for Cable-Tec Expo®. SCTE•ISBE has no affiliation with other room brokers. We have received several reports that wholesalers have been contacting exhibitors and attendees to book New Orleans hotel reservations and would like to remind our exhibitors and attendees that show management has no affiliations with any of these room brokers. The only company that is officially sanctioned and approved to book hotel rooms on behalf of exhibitors and attendees as the SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo® Housing office is MCI USA. Those who opt for alternatives to the SCTE•ISBE preferred providers and negotiated rates as stated on this website may find themselves at risk.
