ANGA COM unveils new features and reports uptick in registrations

Germany’s ANGA COM has reported registrations for more than 22,000 sqm gross exhibition space for this year’s show four months ahead of the event.

This year’s ANGA COM will take place in Cologne from May 23 to 25. Current registrations imply an increase of more than 30% in booked space from the existing client base alone compared to 2022, the trade show’s organisers said.

ANGA COM said growth is particularly strong in the fibre sector. In addition to vendors, leading investors such as Deutsche Glasfaser, Deutsche GigaNetz, Unsere Grüne Glasfaser, Plusnet and VX Fiber will also be present with stands in the two exhibition halls.

To capitalise on this, ANGA COM will debut a new International FTTH Summit including a high-level keynote, an international panel discussion and joint showcases from vendors and network operators on fibre rollout across Europe. The new conference track will take place on Wednesday, May 24. Details will be published in March.

Other new features include a Media Distribution are with a Streaming & OTT Hub in hall 7.

Designed to provide smaller vendors and start-ups from the media distribution sector with a ‘plug and play’ option, the area also includes a new Innovation Stage, a presentation and discussion stage on topics from the areas of video, streaming, OTT and AppTV.

ANGA COM 2023 will also feature a new Small Enterprise Park for small exhibitors and start-ups, while the conference will feature a Fibre & Municipalities day on May 25.

Peter Charissé, CEO of ANGA COM,  said: “This year, we will underline our slogan ‘Where Broadband meets Content’ with a whole range of new features in both topic areas. In the area of fibre optics with the International FTTH Summit and the Theme Day Fibre & Municipalities, in the media area with the Streaming & OTT Hub and the Innovation Stage directly in the exhibition hall. The offer is rounded off by the Small Enterprise Park and a sensationally low-priced all-inclusive package for small, new exhibitors. After the successful comeback in 2022, we are investing massively this year and are ready for take-off in all areas.”
