Why Smart Labels USA 2004?

In 2004 many companies will begin to develop and deploy RFID in their businesses. RFID is creating new markets and tackling horrendous inefficiencies in others, and the development towards ultra low cost electronics is bringing a wave of new disruptive technologies and processes.

The third annual Smart Labels USA conference and expo will detail the business and technology issues with RFID, covering many vertical sectors including retailing, healthcare, airports, FMCG supply chain, manufacturing, warehousing, libraries, entertainment and beyond.  Beyond identification only, the conference explores the benefits and use of RFID combined with sensors to monitor the condition and status of items, and the new markets and consumer benefits that are enabled.

Smart Labels USA 2004 has a strong focus on presenting experiences from actual implementations and discussion of the needs of users – by users or potential users themselves – allowing you to network and meet the adopters of RFID. Attended by 344 delegates from 20 countries last year, we expect this years event will be bigger and new pre-conference introduction systems are in place to aid networking, along with many other benefits of attending.

Hosted wholly by IDTechEx, the programme is devised based on our global consultancy experience from the US, Europe and Asia. This is the tenth global event run by IDTechEx covering RFID, smart labels & smart packaging.
