The numbers on NXTcomm

NXTcomm, undoubtedly the wireline industry's biggest event, reportedly drew fewer attendees than show organizers had hoped, which is probably not necessarily surprising to anyone who attended the show, but also not something to be too worried about at this point.

This was the show's first year under a new leader, Wayne Crawford, who had about five months to prepare and produce an event that had the example of previous SuperComms to live up to, as well as the pressure and expectation to create a new kind of event with fresh programming for a telecom industry in flux. We're looking forward to NXTcomm 2008 in Las Vegas before lingering much longer on lower-than-expected attendance this year.
