The exhibition and convention industry offers facilities and services required to host expositions and conferences. Currently, it has been greatly esteemed as a promising industry because it can produce a higher added value and maintain a pure environment at the same time as an aggregate of service industries. Like other industries, the need of digitalization and information system in the exhibition and convention industry makes it introduce ERP and MIS and nowadays ubiquitous related model projects are ongoing. In this paper, we conduct researches regarding the systematic introduction of ubiquitous related technologies through the service and information system identification of exhibition and convention industry, and analysis of value chain and critical success factor. We consider RFID, ZigBee and mobile related technologies as the ubiquitous related technology types and select the exhibition witness and the maintenance of facilities as the area of related technologies introduction. In addition, we propose a scheme used to analyze and solve the problems which could be occurred when ubiquitous related technologies are applied. The results of this paper could be used as a policy to nourish exhibition and convention industry, and a guideline of the host organizations.
