2020 Vision Photos: First Light

REYKJAVIK, Iceland -- 2020 Vision -- Light Reading's communications hot spring is now open for business in Iceland!

We kicked off the 2020 Vision Executive Summit in Frón -- as some of the locals call it -- on Monday night with a reception at the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica hotel and an epic Icelandic family-style meal at the Fiskmarkaðurinn restaurant. As you'll see in the slides this 12-course tasting menu was a feast for fish-loving locavores.

(See Photos: Velkomin til Íslands!)

2020 Kick-Off!
We've come to the land of the ice and snow, so of course we brought booze!

Ragnheiður Elín Árnadóttir, Iceland's minister of industry and tourism then welcomed the attendees. After that, service providers, vendors and the Light Reading crew got down to the business of figuring out the next five years of challenges and opportunities in the communications business.

For more coverage of the strategic pressures and opportunities facing operators and vendors in the communications market, see our business transformation content channel here on Light Reading.

More on that later!

A good start to 2015 Looks like a good mix of ice, coffee & Telecom 2.0. A good start to 2015.

Re: party You'd have to ask Saunders about that, he picked Iceland.

Re: party Wow. I wonder – why in Iceland? Seems like a far-flung locale for a conference. But hey, if I had the chance to travel there for a meeting I would probably do it.

Re: Patrick Donegan's speech Patrick is very protective of his digital copyrights -- kind of like the Beatles. Also, we want to keep the good stuff for our event attendees.

Patrick Donegan's speech I really was hoping for a video on Patrick Donegan's presentation. The man really has some helpful insights into the workings of a security protocol underneath the normal working of companies. Extending to that he also is presenting on the security in digital networks. If there was a video of his presentation then that would be great.

Re: Puffin I've seen people with food poisoning admitted in serious condition in hospitals, the reason: They ate the food that was cooked with water having pigeon droplets. I think its better to stay away from pigeon droppings. They are severely toxic to human beings.

Re: Puffin I don't recall ever eating pigeon but I did have an infestation of them on the terrace of an apartment where I lived in Boston. I tried unsuccessfully to drive them out. Eventually they drove me out -- all the way to San Francisco.

Re: Puffin The consensus on eating puffin is that it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Think fishy pigeon.

Re: party With lots of liquor, hot coffee, great food, and lots of snow and ice, what better place for a pre-holiday conference! I'm so used to Florida's warm winter weather, but I could be easily convinced to attend meetings there (for a few days anyway!)
