THE MEETING FOR C-LEVEL EXECUTIVES IN THE US CONNECTIVITY MARKET.
Thank you very much for attending the 13th annual Metro Connect USA. 2014’s edition was undoubtedly its best ever and that is down to the support of our sponsors, speakers, exhibitors and attendees.
In total we hosted 446 delegates in Miami which was a huge 25% growth on 2013’s attendance. 193 different companies were represented which was a staggering 27% growth year on year.
KEY NEW FEATURES FOR 20141. In 2013 355 meetings were organised using our online meeting planner. This year we had stripped back the content, made the conference into a single stream AND extended each networking break to accomodate each delegate's busy meeting schedule.
2. We introduced keynote addresses to precede the traditional CEO panel. This was an exclusive opportunity to understand two very different viewpoints on how a metro business should be structured in order to succeed.
3. It was fantastic to have the formal participation of the MSO at Metro Connect USA 2014 and their keynote panel on day two to gain an insight into their strategic play and M&A plans for the year ahead.
Capacity Media, in conjunction with Atlantic-ACM, was delighted to announce the launch of the Metro Connect Awards. This exclusive event will took place at the end of day 1 and featured a drinks reception and a gourmet 4 course meal suitable to toast the best-of-the-best of the North American metro market.
There were 17 different award categories devised to celebrate the outstanding achievements of Metro providers and affiliated industries. To see a full list of this years winners, click here.
