Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from International Wireless Communications Expo

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- IWCE reached a milestone this
 year by celebrating its 25th anniversary.  The annual trade show and
 conferences, held in Las Vegas, NV on March 28-30, were put on by Intertec
 Exhibitions and Intertec Publications:  Mobile Radio Technology, Site
 Management & Technology, and RF Design.  IWCE (International Wireless
 Communications Expo) is the largest exposition of land-mobile related
 equipment and services in the world.  Attendees at the show were there to view
 the latest in two-way communications technologies including GPS, mobile data,
 paging and cellular.  Some of the world's industries best known wireless
 companies including Motorola, Kenwood, Com-Space, Vertex, and Future-Com were
 exhibiting their best and newest products at IWCE 2001.  The show was a
 tremendous success with verified attendance of 7,547, surpassing last year's
 by eight percent!  In fact, exhibitors were amazed by the number of attendees
 and thrilled with the unlimited business prospects that the surge in
 attendance brought.
     The always-popular workshops at IWCE included even more topics for the
 changing field of wireless communications.  This year's workshop topics
 included a Business & Technology Track, Regulatory Track, and Public Safety
 Track.  The Public Safety Track was particularly successful thanks to the
 combined efforts of both the publication and exhibition departments.
 Attendees of this track included the FBI, Border Patrol and numerous other
 industry professionals.  The keynote speaker, Kathleen Wallman, Chairman of
 the FCC's Public Safety National Coordination Committee, reflected this year's
 Public Safety emphasis.  Also offered were workshops on Radiation Safety and
 Base Station Workshops.
     The Radiation Safety Workshop was a new addition to this year's IWCE
 workshop line-up.  This workshop was formed to address recent government
 regulations on radiation safety and how companies can meet these government
 compliance rules.  The workshop, titled Radiation Safety and FCC Compliance
 for Wireless Communications, proved to be a valuable addition to the schedule.
 The response to the new topic was overwhelming which resulted in a full
 workshop.
     Another highlight of IWCE 2001 was the celebration of the show's 25th
 anniversary.  A 70's theme party was held to commemorate the occasion that
 included such 70's icons as disco balls, Elvis impersonators, and a disco
 dance floor.  Also included in the festivities was a slide show of IWCE
 through the years complete with shots of some of the original attendees.
 These "old-timers" who attended both the original IWCE and IWCE 2001 were
 honored with gifts of anniversary clocks.
     IWCE Live!, an on-line Show Daily, was a very popular new feature in 2001
 that provided attendees and exhibitors with up-to-the-minute news, photos and
 updates concerning the show.  This on-line newsletter featured articles about
 exhibitors, new products, and the latest show happenings.  IWCE Live! could be
