TMF Live! Pics Pt II: Soft on the Inside

NICE, France -- TM Forum Live! -- The south coast of France is beautiful to behold in June, but despite what our first set of pics suggested, the Light Reading entourage wasn't in Nice to get a tan. (See TMF Live! Pics: Have a Nice Day.)

Click on the image below to see some of the sights from inside the annual service provider IT (SPIT)-fest that is the TM Forum Live! event. (OK, there are a few more snaps of Nice too...)

Bright Light, Nice City
The sun was so bright it made everyone look a little pasty as they approached the event's entrance.

TMF in Nice style Nice is not a bad place to be any time of the year. :) The characters dressed up in masquerade gowns look like a good reminder of where this event was taking place. Very Nice style.

Jazz hands This industry needs more jazz hands. Perhaps ETSI could start a working group.

Re: #latergram @mendyK I've found that to be true at the conferences and expos I've attended (a bit less so in the heyday of the dotcom days). It also holds at Bitcoin conferences, where I'd guess about 2/3 were male. It is possible to lie with pictures without Photoshop though, all you have to do is capture an atypical group -- like a 4 or so with at least 2 women present --  to make it look like there were as many women as men there.

Re: #latergram Yes, males outnumber females at telecom trade shows. The gender gap looks like it is shrinking, though. But pictures don't lie, unless Photoshop is involved.

Re: #latergram Was the event as male-dominated as the pictures indicate?

Re: #latergram Sarah, that's just the way those pictures turned out on my iPhone - it was weird but nothing intentional on my part.

#latergram I didn't know we could do Instagram-style filters for slide shows! That changes everything...
