Carphone bosses get a soaking

Key conference evacuated

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

A faulty sprinkler led to a group of Carphone Warehouse managers getting a soaking yesterday as the firm announced its major new broadband strategy to hundreds of senior staff.

The firm was holding its twice yearly managers' conference in a London hotel yesterday when El Reg received the following text from someone attending the bash.

"700 managers, the biggest launch in CPW history...one faulty fire sprinkler...10 people soaked and a hotel evacuated. Priceless."

A spokesman for Carphone confirmed that the firm's managers were attending a major company conference yesterday, but refused to verify that the event was interrupted and that some staff got a soaking. ®
