There is a conference of course. It's not cheap, at £1,199 for three days - and bafflingly, it's "free to non telecoms business attendees" - how do they prove you're a telecoms business attendee

The "themes" of the conference are:

Day 1 – Tuesday 8th June

Automotive: Creating in-vehicle wireless connectivity

Telephony & short range wireless

Day 2 – Wednesday 9th June

Retail,transport & logistics: improving business efficiency with wireless connectivity

The wireless office & home: ubiquitous connectivity

Day 3 – thursday 10th June

Medical applications & m2m

Consumer & entertainment applications

There's a full agenda of the paid-for conference online, but the big attraction at this year's WiCon World show will be a special "free seminar" on personal mobile gateways, or PMGs. The PMG, invented by IXI Mobile takes the design of mobile devices into the Bluetooth age.

Other free seminars include a WLAN Seminar - "Whether you are looking to deploy public wireless hotpots OR looking at the benefits of making your enterprise wireless – this is the seminar for you!"

There's also a Wireless Connectivity Solutions Seminar - "Are you searching for the right wireless technology? Learn about the benefits of each at this seminar!"

And finally, there's the Wireless Security Seminar - "Hear the main security issues exposed and potential solutions discussed. Is security a current issue for you? Attend this seminar and it doesn't need to be!"
