This constitutes a visitor increase by 6 percent. 2,200 persons attended the congress programme and with that 16 percent more than in the previous year. Also the number of countries of origin increased by 20 percent.

Thomas Braun, President of the Association of German Cable Operators (ANGA): “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. 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 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.”

Next year and in the course of a comprehensive modernization initiative, ANGA COM will move: The event will take place in two new, spacious halls and a modern congress center in the Northern parts of the Cologne fairgrounds from 30 May to 1 June 2017.
