RFID is acknowledged as an enabling technology impacting many areas of human endeavour. Thousands of companies supply solutions throughout the RFID value chain today, yet it is curious to monitor the industry as it evolves: some applications are vastly oversupplied with little product value offered. Others are undersupplied despite high value tags being requested by users. East Asia will become the largest market for RFID in just a few years yet few know of what is really happening there. Many large niches exist which have few system providers with appropriate experience. Most do not know of the largest and most profitable orders of RFID so far and ones that are emerging - and who is placing them. Many chase shadows. Few know of the 10 different types of chipless RFID technologies and the dozens of companies developing them, or of the impact or profitability of active RFID. How do you make RFID smart labels to help meet the real demand? How do you add value to RFID smart labels to make money now? What is coming next that you need to take into account before investing further in RFID?
This fifth annual IDTechEx event has been devised to tackle these issues. We are flying in experts from China, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, the Middle East and Europe to inform you of the global situation. We cover new opportunities from users and step-by-step implementation approaches. We dedicate sessions to developments in chipless RFID (with world first launches), active RFID (now merging with Wifi, Zigbee ...) and passive chip RFID (such as new long range HF systems). We cover how to manufacture RFID smart labels, add value and smart labels beyond ID alone. See the full speaker list at www.smartlabelsUSA.com - you will be surprised. Uniquely, IDTechEx consultants tie it all together for you - highlighting why these developments are important so you understand their significance.
