The article focuses on the use of wireless networks and handheld devices in conferences. This was demonstrated in Davos, Switzerland during the Tile 2001 World Economic Forum. Each participant was given a free Compaq iPAQ pocket PC, which served as a conference guide. Data was updated automatically through tile wireless LAN whenever the participant enters the conference. Wireless updates may seem too high-tech, but handheld conference guides are being adapted in some conferences.
