RDK Working Groups are periodically convened based on the need to collaborate closely on emerging RDK technology and features that have varied requirements across the globe. Technology Working Groups communicate via dedicated wiki pages, forums, special slack or flowdock channels, and periodic face to face meetings. Working Groups meet over the phone and on the sidelines of industry conferences such as RDK conferences, NCTA and SCTE.
The RDK Technology Summit is an annual event held each summer to educate the RDK community on the latest updates in RDK technology. The Tech Summit, as it is called, is also an opportunity to provide face-to-face hands-on training to RDK novices. The Tech Summit is well attended by industry leaders, subject matter experts and RDK gurus, and is an excellent avenue for the community to collaborate and discuss the evolution of RDK. ASP members are eligible for discounted registration for the annual RDK Technology Summit. Regular prices of the summit range from $1,100 to $1,500 per attendee. ASP members can avail discounts ranging from 15% to 50% based on the number of attendees registering from the company.
The RDK Americas Conference is the evolution of the previous RDK Users Conference that was conducted in February every year in North America. Beginning in 2017, the RDK Americas Conference will follow the same pattern as the RDK European Conference and will be an invite-only conference attended by operators and ASP members. ASP members can forge close collaboration within the RDK community and with the operators in an exclusive environment.
As a strategic benefit, ASP members are considered for speaking opportunities at RDKM run events. This includes the RDK conferences in America and Europe, the RDK Tech Summit and RDK Webinars which occur every month.

MSP is an add-on marketing program that allows ASP members to avail RDKM media to market their brand, products and services. MSP members’ logos will be prominently displayed on www.RDKCentral.com, RDK Reports, e-blasts, and webinar materials. Only ASP members are eligible to join MSP and leverage the increased media exposure. ASP members can enhance their strategic exposure within the RDK community, as MSP members get preference in presenting and speaking opportunities.
