Witness an Industry in Motion in Vegas at EXPO 2016

By Val Kostenko, manager - IR Communications & Methods

The opportunity still remains for you to join your NECA and industry colleagues in Las Vegas November 13-17 for EXPO 2016. This year, the MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is the backdrop for this longstanding annual event. Please visit our EXPO page for complete class descriptions, registration information, exhibit/sponsorship opportunities and details on accommodations and activities.

EXPO 2016's theme, Industry in Motion, describes perfectly the content of several class offerings. You'll hear from various experts on the recent FCC USF rate-of-return reform order affecting our industry, new revenue opportunities and successful marketing strategies to help you in the transition to an all-IP network. 

Classes are offered multiple times so please take a moment to peruse some of the more highly attended sessions we are offering this year:

  • USF Reform:  Panelists will focus on Commission orders to reform universal service, specifically as they relate to CAF broadband loop support for rate-of-return companies. 

  • Inside the Beltway: This course will cover a range of telecommunications issues that have been hot topics before the FCC, Congress and the Courts.  

  • Strategies and Marketing for Cutting Edge Technology Transition: Panelists will discuss where and how telecom technology will evolve in the rural marketplace in the next few years.

  • Evolving Technology in Tariff 5: You'll hear about the latest updates to new service initiatives, as well as the opportunity to participate in an open discussion about ideas on tariff offerings and network technology.

  • USAC Overview: USAC staff will provide an overview of the Universal Service Fund Connect America Program and the FCC's recent rate-of-return order, which aims to bring broadband to rural America by requiring carriers to meet defined buildout obligations. 

  • Vendor and Consultant Sessions: Start your day by joining a 30-minute presentation by selected vendors (Tuesday morning) and consultants (Wednesday morning) to hear the latest in technology and innovation from their respective organizations.

Our Welcome Reception kicks off EXPO 2016 on Sunday evening, November 13 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Meet and greet, enjoy a bite and a beverage, and charge up for a comprehensive and exciting week of education and enjoyment. Our EXPO page has all the details. See you in Vegas!
