May 04, 2010—RFID Journal announced today that it has partnered with LOGyCA, a leading supply chain services firm based in Bogotá, Colombia, to launch RFID Journal LIVE! Latin America (LatAm). The conference will be held in Bogotá on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, 2010.
"A growing number of companies in Latin America are interested in using RFID to improve the visibility of assets, personnel and products moving through their supply chains," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor.

Almacafé recently won the 2010 RFID Journal Award for the Best Use of RFID in a Product or Service, for developing and implementing the solution (see RFID Journal Announces Winners of Its 4th Annual Awards).
