We’ve heard it time and time again: industry events are in decline…no one goes to events anymore. Well, I’m here to tell you that the reports on the death of the trade show have been greatly exaggerated. I am just back from the FTTH Conference in Milan, and it was great to see the conference grow again this year. A record number of more than 3,000 delegates attended the conference, making it the largest FTTH event in the world.
It was a classic showdown at high-noon, with tumbleweeds rolling by. There could only be one winner, and the other would have to leave town, never to return.
