NATE: The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association announced today that DISH Co-Founder and Chairman Charlie Ergen and FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr will participate in a Q & A Keynote Fireside Chat at the NATE UNITE 2022 Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Charlie-Ergen-NATEThe keynote session will be moderated by prominent industry analyst Jennifer Fritzsche, Head of North American Telecom and Digital Infrastructure at Greenhill & Co. The keynote appearances by Ergen and Carr will take place during the DISH-sponsored NATE UNITE 2022 Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, February 23 at Caesars Forum in Las Vegas.

NATE UNITE 2022 is widely regarded as the premier and most comprehensive educational conference and trade show in the diverse communications infrastructure industry. Conference attendees include representatives from contractor companies, engineering firms, wireless carriers, vertical realtors, manufacturers, distributors, public safety entities, technology firms, training companies, military organizations and educational institutions.

“On behalf of the Association’s over 1,035 member companies, we are thrilled to welcome Charlie Ergen and Commissioner Carr to NATE UNITE 2022,” stated President & CEO Todd Schlekeway.

“The NATE UNITE 2022 Conference will provide Mr. Ergen and Mr. Carr with an invaluable platform to speak directly to the nation’s contractor company owners, technicians and vendors tasked with building, servicing, maintaining and deploying America’s wireless and mobile broadband networks and related infrastructure. Additionally, NATE UNITE 2022 being held in Las Vegas is well-timed to coincide with DISH preparing to activate service and make the city its first official 5G wireless market during the first quarter of 2022,” Schlekeway added.

“DISH would not be able to deploy America’s first cloud-based 5G network without our hardworking teammates in the tower industry,” said Charlie Ergen, DISH Co-Founder and Chairman. “We are grateful to NATE for providing this opportunity to connect and look forward to meaningful discussion with Commissioner Carr, Todd Schlekeway and conference attendees.”

“I am pleased to be joining NATE and its member companies for the NATE UNITE 2022 conference,” said Commissioner Carr. “The individuals that are building, servicing, maintaining, and deploying America’s wireless networks have some of the toughest jobs out there.  But their hard, often gritty work is critical for the buildout of 5G and has allowed us to continue to lead the world in wireless.  I look forward to speaking to these crews, and other attendees, about the work we can continue doing to ensure America keeps—and extends—its lead in 2022 and beyond.”
