GovTech delegates have been involved in a number of interactive surveys during the conference, an initiative that has enjoyed a high level of acceptance. In fact, delegates seem to have enjoyed the experience so much that 20 handsets were missing by the end of the first day.

Session chairman Mthunzi Mdwala today appealed to delegates to return the handsets – ironically at the close of a talk on security.
He jokingly pointed out that, while delegates undoubtedly took the handsets by mistake, it would be difficult to explain that it had not been deliberate if they were later exposed.
