RFID Journal LIVE! Europe 2017 Report

November 29th, 2017 Retail - Features
By RFID Journal
View the presentations from RFID Journal's 13th annual conference and exhibition for the European market, held this month in London.

Throughout Europe, radio frequency identification technologies are being deployed at large, midsize and small companies to improve efficiencies, enhance visibility, reduce shrinkage and achieve other business benefits. This year's RFID Journal LIVE! Europe conference and exhibition, held on Nov. 16 in London, England, focused on educating end users in retail and other sectors about how RFID is benefiting companies in a variety of industries across the continent.

LIVE! Europe 2017 was sponsored by Zebra Technologies, Avery Dennison, Byways, Kontakt.io, PervasID and others. This event offered an opportunity for European businesses to come together and learn how adopting RFID could grow their business. The conference opened with three general sessions, then divided into two tracks: the Main Track (which covered a variety of applications relevant to companies in manufacturing, logistics and other industries) and the Retail Track (which featured case studies presented by retailers currently benefiting from employing the technology).

The one-day programwith RFID Professional Institute certification training on Nov. 15, presented by RFID4Uwas designed to help companies considering using RFID technologies to address business challenges, determine the best RFID technology for their needs, learn best practices from early adopters, find the right technology partners and move forward with deployment. This year's conference attracted 200 attendees.

Recordings of the speaker presentations are now available in RFID Journal's video library.
