Ovum – Light Reading/Heavy Reading Welcome Reception at OFC

 

If you are attending OFC, we’d like to invite you to a special event! After a full day of sessions, workshops, and panel discussions regarding optical fiber communications and networking, Ovum and our partner Light Reading/Heavy Reading are hosting a decidedly less technical networking event on Tuesday after the exhibition hall closes. We’ve chosen a great venue, Tom’s Urban, which is located a couple of blocks from the convention center.

 

Meet with research analysts and industry experts in a relaxed casual locale. Great food and, of course, an open bar. The Lakers/Clippers game will be on the big screens so even those from out of town will feel like a local.

Tuesday, March 21st
