MTA Fall Video Forum
MTA Plant Manager/Superintendent Peer Group 39th Bi-Annual Meeting

MTA Fall Video Forum

November 17-18, 2011
Crowne Plaza Hotel and Suites, Plymouth

Check out the EXCITING and FULL Agenda HERE!

Meet former Minnesota Twin, Jack Morris, 1991 World Series MVP, and Darrell Thompson, former Minnesota Gopher and Green Bay Packer!

You also don’t want to miss Rich Fickle, Chris Cinnamon, and nearly ALL the Middleware vendors.

You're invited to attend the 2011 Fall Video Forum sponsored by the MTA Video and Information Technology Peer Groups, scheduled for November 17-18, 2011 at the Crown Plaza in Plymouth MN. Both the Video and IT Peer Groups have joined efforts again this year because, as all Telco Video providers know, network knowledge AND programming and product knowledge is essential to offering a competitive, cost-effective, quality video service. This year’s list of speakers, vendors and sponsors will enhance your knowledge and your staff's knowledge of all things video!

Thursday will begin with a slate of excellent Middleware vendors set to explain everything you wanted to know about middleware. Each vendor will tell us what we want to know about what their product can do to make our service better. Check out the agenda to see who will be there! After each middleware vendor has presented, we will sit back and listen to some users tell us how their experiences with their middleware has helped their customers and increased the bottom line.

We couldn’t have a good legal discussion and have all our questions answered without bringing in Chris Cinnamon from the Cinnamon Mueller Law Firm. He will be there to discuss ALL the video legal issues of the day, including Retransmission Consent.

Rich Fickle and Frank Hughes from NCTC will be there to answer questions all NCTC members have regarding recent and upcoming programming changes and other NCTC member services.

Thursday and Friday will be filled with TWO tracks of great sessions. Join us for a meeting that will not only leave you with great ideas from the sessions, but will allow you to connect with vendors and learn from other carriers as well.  Friday will end with messages from your Minnesota Senators.

And on top of the great knowledge you’ll walk away with, meals are included in registration. Join us to socialize and network!

Download the conference registration form! The deadline for meeting registration is November 7.
