The congress during the ANGA Cable Show will be opened by Hans-Joachim Otto (Parliamentary State Secretary, Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology). The following Strategy Summit will once again be the floor for the top representatives of the German cable, satellite and DSL network operators.
This so called ‘elephants round’ will be hosted by Thomas Braun (President ANGA Association of German Cable Operators) as the host of the event and Dr. Adrian v.
