The 71st annual IWCS Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum takes place October 10-13 in Providence, Rhode Island. The event will include a technical symposium featuring previously unpublished technical papers; a plenary luncheon with a keynote speaker; a supplier exhibition; and new expert panel discussions, an executive session and professional development courses.
Following virtual events in 2020 and 2021, this year sees the return of a traditional in-person format, as business continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. It is expected to be well-received by international colleagues who are ready to once again network, learn and have fun in Providence. IWCS director/CEO David Kiddoo commented,
While remaining diligent and cautious for the health and well-being of our family, friends and communities, IWCS looks forward to the in-person interaction we have missed in recent years.
The theme of the 2022 IWCS Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum is
rebooting the future of our industry and communities. The technical papers to be presented were reviewed by 30 members of the IWCS symposium committee.
A new feature for this year will be three expert panel discussions on the topics of Celebrating Women of the Industry, Early Career Success Tips, and Advancing Technologies.
The supplier exhibition will feature more than 75 suppliers, who will demonstrate the latest technologies in cable and connectivity products, processes and applications.
