The Confederation of Aerial Industries Ltd (CAI) has announced that registration for its annual Evolving Connectivity conference is now open.
This year’s event, taking place on April 26 at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, focuses on the first major upheaval of spectrum change since the digital switchover. More of the UHF is being allocated for mobile use so UK terrestrial TV is making the necessary changes required. For many, this heralds what they see as a migration of our TV viewing to a broadband delivery in the long term.
For the immediate future it is time when UK households will need guidance on coping with channel changes, at a pivotal time as the CAI celebrates 40 years of representation.
Registration is now open for Evolving Connectivity 2018 and attendees can register for free here.
