ANGA COM 2016 ended with 450 exhibitors and 18,000 participants from 89 countries. Next year, the event will move to a new hall.
The organiser said the number of visitors increased by 6%. 2,200 persons attended the congress programme and with that 16% more than in the previous year. Also the number of countries of origin increased by 20%.
Next year and in the course of a comprehensive modernisation initiative, ANGA COM will move: The event will take place in two new, spacious halls and a modern congress centre in the Northern parts of the Cologne fairgrounds from May 30 to 1 June 1, 2017.
“ANGA COM was again a huge success for us. Our Cologne show team has once again excelled itself. The close combination of broadband and media as well as of the exhibition and congress has paid off,” said Thomas Braun, President of the Association of German Cable Operators (ANGA).
“For this, I would like to thank also our cooperation partner Medienforum NRW and the altogether 12 industry associations that actively supported us. I was particularly impressed by the positive energy that could be experienced in the exhibition hall. Our industry is and will remain the most important motor for the digitization.”
Also Herbert Strobel, Chairman of the Satellite & Cable Trade Association within the German Association of the Electrical and Electronics Industry ZVEI, is also very satisfied: “Also this year, the success rate of ANGA COM is impressive. We, as the industry, are especially pleased that the new concept for the Broadband Day has proven right. Thus, the last day has been better attended than ever, we have been able to make many new contacts. ANGA COM with its clear profile and high internationality is and will remain the industry highlight of the year for us.”
