Live streaming video, new corporate partners, global audience, interactive content and expert speaker sessions, to highlight first of series of 'State of Subsea' events in 2014 for leading facilities-based telecom consulting and service company

NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- APTelecom, a facilities-based telecom consulting and service company specializing in emerging markets, today announced that it will kick-off its 2014 lineup of 'State of Subsea' expert events in Washington, D.C., USA, on Tuesday, April 1st. The event will take place at the world-renowned Corcoran Gallery of Art, from 9 AM to 12 PM EST. The Corcoran is the oldest and largest non-federal art museum in the United States, and has achieved United States National Historic Landmark status.  

The event will be the second 'State of Subsea' expert event that APTelecom has hosted to date, and the first in the 2014 season.

Those who are not able to join in person are invited to attend online via live streaming video courtesy of SubTel Forum, the leading online magazine dedicated to the submarine cable industry, and the exclusive media partner of APTelecom's for the 'State of Subsea' series.

The inaugural 'State of Subsea' event, which took place from New York City in October 2013, generated overwhelmingly positive reviews from the hundreds of people who tuned in to the streaming video feed. The video broadcast had previously never been done before at a subsea industry event.  

For the upcoming 'State of Subsea' event in Washington, D.C., APTelecom welcomes its newest partner, Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC), which will be supporting the event with a variety of interactive content, promotional efforts, and guest representatives. PTC is a globally respected organization for telecommunications and information and communication technology professionals with interests in the Asia-Pacific region. PTC is perhaps best known for its annual conference in Hawaii, which attracts thousands of telecommunications executives and thought leaders from across the world. 

"We are extremely pleased to usher in a new season of 'State of Subsea' expert events at the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington, D.C.," said Sean Bergin, Co-Founder of APTelecom. "Alongside our partners SubTel Forum and PTC, we look forward to providing an innovative forum that all in the submarine cable industry can turn to for high-level insights, interactive content, and engaging discussions to drive new levels of collaboration across the entire sector."

The mission of the 'State of Subsea' events are to bring together an eclectic mix of executives, influencers, and leaders from all walks of the submarine cable and telecom industry to address the latest trends, and share expert insights and knowledge on the future of the industry.  The events are highlighted by special breakout panels with industry experts, moderated Q&A sessions, informational exchanges, roundtable discussions on emerging global economic market trends, lucky draws, and more. Complimentary breakfast will be provided to everyone in attendance, courtesy of APTelecom.

"Pacific Telecommunications Council is pleased to partner with APTelecom for their 'State of Subsea' events series," said Sharon Nakama, CEO of Pacific Telecommunications Council. "We look forward to launching this partnership with a successful event in Washington, D.C. that will further the discussions on a broad range of subsea industry topics, and continuing to support the series throughout 2014."

While the April 1st event in Washington, D.C., will kick-off the 2014 'State of Subsea' expert event series, additional events are expected to take place in San Francisco and other locations throughout the year.
