The International Wire & Cable Symposium Inc. (IWCS) and the Communications Cable and Connectivity Association Inc. (CCCA) will cooperate to expand the annual IWCS Technical Symposium and Conference to include technical papers and information on structured cabling systems and applications used in IT infrastructure for commercial buildings and critical facilities.

This
cooperation will be a pilot for the upcoming symposium, which is being
held November 9-12 at the Rhode Island Convention Centre in Providence.
A designated “IT Infrastructure and Connectivity” track will be
developed to attract a new technology-focused connectivity audience to
the event.




“Our
relationship with IWCS gives CCCA a superb opportunity to extend our
reach through technology and science-based research papers to help
guide IT infrastructure planning and decision making,” said Kevin St.
Cyr, CCCA chair.




Both organizations say they plan to continue to work constructively with other relevant trade and industry associations.
