To ensure you receive the greatest discounts, register early and become an SCTE•ISBE member (You can join SCTE•ISBE for just $85 USD, or upgrade your Expo experience as an Executive Member for $160 USD).
Your badge is your ticket to admission; please make sure that it is visible at all times on the exhibit floor, in workshops, and at all official Cable-Tec Expo® events. This includes Expo Evening!
In some cases you may need to justify your attendance at the engineering event of the year. The Cable-Tec Expo® justification toolkit is an available resource with valuable information, a customizable justification letter template and tips to get you started on justifying your attendance at this year’s event.
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 Atlanta.
Hotels and Accommodations
SCTE•ISBE will provide a variety of Atlanta 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 Atlanta 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.
