Mid-America Cable Show Schedule (MACS)

The Mid-America Cable Show will be hosting their annual meeting Wednesday, July 30th after The Independent Show. Visit for more information or contact Teresa Hellman at
Did you know that NCTC was started from the members of the Mid-America Cable Association? It’s true, and now, 30 years later these organizations are teaming up together again by hosting both annual conferences back to back. Be sure to make plans to stay thru Wednesday and participate in the Mid-America Cable Show.
Although The Independent Show and Mid-America Cable Show may share many of the same attendees, the Mid-America Cable Association includes members like the local Time Warner and Comcast offices. They also attract a unique audience with the MIDI Awards and SCTE’s Cable Tech Games. Exhibitors will have several opportunities to network with attendees including exhibit time before the Awards/Pathfinders Dinner on Wednesday night. See the tentative schedule of events below.
