This year's RFID Journal LIVE! Europe conference and exhibition, to be held on Oct. 23, at Dexter House, in London, England, will focus on educating end users about how radio frequency identification technology is delivering business benefits to companies in manufacturing, retail and other sectors. The event will feature three general sessions, a Main Track and a Retail Track. Among the sessions to be featured in the Retail Track:

Dr. Bill Hardgrave, the dean of Auburn University's Harbert College of Business, will present a session detailing how RFID can be used to help brick-and-mortar stores disrupt online retailers, by providing them with the inventory visibility necessary to become true omni-channel retailers.

Alexander Bols, Intersport Jan Bols' general manager, will share how the athletic equipment and clothing store is using RFID to boost sales and decrease costs. Attendees will hear how the use of RFID contributed to increased sales, and how the checkout process was made quicker and more accurate (see Intersport Expects RFID to Boost Its Sales, Decrease Its Costs).

Karl Jordan, Wilko's senior loss-prevention investigator, will explain how the British housewares and household goods retailer fights stock loss via RFID. Attendees will learn how the RFID system alerts the store to loss, when it happens, with real-time visibility about what is and is not passing through the tills, before items can be taken through the exit point.

Richard Jenkins, the head of Marks & Spencer's RFID programme, will share how the company is expanding its RFID use to all of its stores. Attendees will learn why the company expects the technology's future potential benefits to provide greater visibility and accuracy of all stock at the item level, and to offer an opportunity to reduce the costs of annual stock-taking, as well as the loss of margin associated with excessive markdowns, theft and fraud (see Marks & Spencer Embraces Change and Marks & Spencer Rolls Out RFID to All Its Stores).
