The fiber optic boom at ANGA COM in Cologne goes on: Five months before the start, registrations for 2024 have already been received from over 350 exhibitors. It is particularly encouraging that this already includes more than 70 new exhibitors who did not participate in 2023.
The bookings already amount to more than 80% of the exhibition space of the record year 2023 with amazing 25,000 gross square meters. Exhibitors who wish to be considered in the first round of hall planning should register via the website (www.angacom.de) by 19 January.
In addition to the vendors of telecommunications and media technology, the operators of fiber optic networks themselves will be represented more strongly than ever next year. Deutsche GigaNetz, OXG Glasfaser and Vodafone top the list with more than 70 square meters each. Other network operators with their own stand space include: Deutsche Glasfaser, DNS:NET, envia TEL, EWE TEL, GasLINE, metrofibre, Netcom BW, NGN Fiber Network, Plusnet, PYUR, UGG Unsere Grüne Glasfaser and VX Fiber.
Dr. Peter Charissé, CEO ANGA COM: “We are fully on track for 2024. The broadband and fiber optic industry remains a stroke of luck. We are particularly pleased about the fantastic inflow of new exhibitors and the further significant increase in participation of the network operators themselves. This clearly shows how important Cologne is for them as a marketplace, both for their vendors and with regard to the municipalities, media and regulation. The Cologne area is and remains the heart of the telecommunications industry; nowhere else in Germany and Europe do so many market leaders have such short distances to travel.”
Next year, Europe’s leading Exhibition and Conference for Broadband, Television & Online will take place in Cologne/Germany from 14 to 16 May 2024. With 470 exhibitors and 22,000 participants from 80 countries, ANGA COM 2023 showed strong growth in May. The exhibition space was increased by 30% compared to the previous year. In terms of participants, a plus of 20% was achieved compared to 2022.
