Yes, airports are putting in teleconference centers. Here are two examples:



No one is arguing that conferencing will completely eliminate travel, but more and more companies are reducing their travel and using conferencing instead. Video conferencing is now available with a web cam on your desktop and conference calls are available on-demand, so it's much easier these days.

Very interesting Vodafone factoid. Thanks. Just goes to show you that we can all do a little better just by evaluating the obvious.

Does the term “adventure travel” mean the traveler must become an Indiana Jones and endure steaming jungles, baking deserts or stormy seas? Does it mean risking life and limb in war zones or regions that have been prone to terrorist attack? Does it mean crawling on your belly in the claustrophobic depths of a cave, or dangling from a rope at a cliff-face hundreds of feet above a torrential river?

Did you know? - Oman is one of the most stable, safe and peaceful countries in the Arabian Gulf – as rated by the 2007 Global Peace Index. Oman is also the 22nd most peaceful country in the world.
Eco travel friendly country.
I recommend to visit the sultanate.

Baltic Sea seaside is very interesting and peaceful place , special when few new countries entered to the United Europe.

South African Adventure Travel

With regards to the adventure travel question, I don't think this necessarily means steaming jungles and Indiana Jones type travels. Here in South Africa, this kind of travel experience can have to do with wonderfully scenic hikes, diving among sharks, jet ski adventures or white river rafting, to name but a few. The possibilities are absolutely endless and can be great fun. There are all kinds of levels - from luxury-based adventures to the real Indiana Jones type. It all depends on the needs of the person.

Buisiness travels contribute huge in terms of revenue for any nation. A decline in the number of buisiness travel due to the increasing opportunities in telecommucation could render badly on countries which depending on travel and tourism. But it could just be marginal. The contribution by buisiness travellers as opposed to regular tourists will be just nominal.
