Soehren cites 'remarkable' support from stakeholders 6/14/2017 3:01 PM Eastern

Women in Cable & Telecomunications says its Signature Luncheon series will return for year two to the CES show in Las Vegas.

With the shuttering of NCTA: The Internet & Television Association's annual INTX convention last year, where the luncheon had taken place since 2010, WICT had to find new digs. WICT has called CES "the perfect partner for the group."

The next lunch will be held Jan. 10 at the Aria Hotel. The lunch salutes the best companies for women in cable and telecom.

"The remarkable support we received from WICT's stakeholders during our debut earlier this year reaffirmed our partnership with CES and offers WICT a strong platform to highlight the business imperative of strong gender diversity."

Comcast is the luncheon's "premiere sponsor."
