NECTA Convention

The 53rd annual NECTA Convention took place on November 12th-14th at the Newport Marriott Hotel and Spa.

Over the course of three days, we covered a wide variety of topics from 10G broadband to sports wagering to content creation to US global leadership to robotics. We explored the forces changing consumer habits and our industries’ responses. We explored how to best seize the tremendous opportunities and transformational change before us. We examined these areas and more in the context of this year’s Convention theme: Access. Opportunity. Engagement.


This year’s convention made clear that we are united behind the goal of improving lives and empowering individuals through emerging technologies, products and services powered by world-class broadband networks. Whatever challenges the region faces – from broadband access to digital equity to AI to cord cutting – can be solved by working together.


Thank you again, and we hope to see you next year!
