NEW YORK (PRWEB) December 7, 2005
RFID Journal announced today its preliminary agenda for RFID Journal LIVE! Conference and Exhibition, its fourth annual gathering of RFID experts and exhibitors. Held May 1-3, 2006 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, RFID Journal LIVE! 2006 will feature eight tracks in five vertical industries [retail and consumer goods, defense and aerospace, health care and pharmaceutical, manufacturing and transportation and logistics]. Three additional tracks will educate executives and technologists about how to get started, how to deploy RFID and how to develop an RFID strategy. Experts will address key issues surrounding RFID deployments, and early adopters will present case studies illustrating RFID’s potential for your business, best practices, and strategies to create a real return on investment for RFID applications.
Among the keynote speakers that will discuss and demonstrate how to get started, how to deploy and RFID strategy are:
- Kevin Humphries, senior vice president of information technology, Federal Express
- Kenneth Krieg, under-secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, U.S. Department of Defense
- Jim Noble, CIO, Altria
- Carolyn Walton, vice president of information systems division, Wal-Mart
“RFID Journal LIVE! has the well-deserved reputation for providing the highest quality content, and we’re taking it to another level in 2006,” says Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal. “Our theme this year is `Putting RFID to Work,’ and we’ve attracted a broad array of speakers who have put RFID to work and can show others how they did it.”
Content for the event will also cover how RFID will positively impact business processes in four key functional areas: information technology, supply chain management, operations and warehouse management. The event will feature an exhibition with more than 150 of the world’s leading RFID technology providers.
IBM is the event’s signature sponsor. Microsoft is a premium sponsor. Tyco/ADT is a track sponsor. Platinum sponsors include Acsis, Applied Wireless Identification, Intermec, Manhattan Associates, Oracle, Paxar, SAP, Sun Microsystems. Gold plus sponsors include Blue Vector, CSC, Impinj, Markem, ODIN Technologies and T3Ci.
“RFID is entering a new phase,” says Roberti. “Early adopters have had HF, UHF, active and real-time locating technologies in production for six months or more and have real experiences to share, rather than talking about theory. Attendees to this year’s event will walk away with a wealth of practical information they can take back to their companies and use to put RFID to work.”
