WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY DISCUSSIONS SLATED FOR THE BLUETOOTH DEVELOPERS CONFERENCE

Development Community to Examine the Future of Wireless Technology at the North American Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) Event of the Year

Los Angeles, CA November 26, 2001 Key3Media Group, Inc. (NYSE: KME) today announced that the Bluetooth Developers Conference will highlight the wireless industry's leading topics over three days of education, interaction and information. The event, taking place December 11-13, 2001 at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, will serve as the platform for discussions regarding the growth in Bluetooth wireless technology development, announced products in 2001 and issues facing the industry today, including how wireless technologies will co-exist.

On Tuesday, December 11, an interactive session open to all Bluetooth Developers Conference attendees will dissect the various roles of coexisting wireless communications standards, such as Bluetooth wireless technology, Wi-Fi, Infrared and 802.11 and how the market must learn to understand the various functions of each of these standards. "Coexistence, Competition and Market Confusion - Getting the Facts Straight," will be led by panelists from some of the industry's leading organizations, including the Wireless LAN Association (WLANA), Microsoft, Widcomm, Dell Computer, CSR, Mobilian and Micrologic Research.

In addition to the coexistence question, more than 70 Conference sessions, panels and keynotes will address several market-critical subjects, including discussion focused on the time to market for Bluetooth wireless products, the completion of standards and profiles for the technology, and general market adoption and growth.
