Incab took part in the CRU World Optical Fiber & Cable Conference

One of the main international events in the industry — the CRU World Optical Fiber & Cable Conference — was held on October 26-28, 2020. CRU, a global consulting company that provides business analytics for various global markets, including the optical fiber and cable market, traditionally hosted the event. This year the conference was held online on a specially developed virtual platform but nevertheless brought together industry experts and leaders from all over the world.

The main topics of the CRU World Optical Fiber & Cable Conference 2020 under discussion were:

– the impact of the crisis and expected recovery for optical fiber and cable industry;

– identification of promising market segments and outsiders;

– the influence of government business support programs on the market;

– overview of the latest trends and innovations in the industry.

Among speakers there were Michael Finch (CRU), Bernhard Deutsch (Corning), Philippe Vanhille (Prysmian), Rob Wessels (Commscope), Karl Bauer (NBG Technologies), Alain Giraud (Rosendahl Nextrom SA) and Alexander Smilgevich (Incab).

It is a great honour that Alexander Smilgevich took part as a speaker in the event. We’d like to thank CRU for granting this generous opportunity. For Incab: At the conference Alexander presented a new European manufacturer of optical cable — Emcab, a joint venture between Incab and Emtelle.
