The event will be renamed EPC Connection.

EPC Connection will be held October 2 to 4 at the Stevens Convention Center in Chicago. EPCglobal North America will also provide special preconference seminars at each spring RFID Journal LIVE! event, beginning with RFID Journal LIVE! 2007, RFID Journal's fifth annual conference and exhibition, to be held April 30 to May 2 in Orlando, Fla., at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.

"This partnership between EPCglobal North America and RFID Journal helps us to serve end users, potential end users and providers of EPC technologies in North America throughout the year, in a way neither organization could do alone," says Mike Meranda, president of EPCglobal North America. "EPCglobal North America brings a deep understanding of Electronic Product Code (EPC) standards and the work being done to implement them. RFID Journal brings a broad audience and the ability to provide top-notch education through face-to-face events."

"We're thrilled to be working with EPCglobal North America," says Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal. "This partnership assists us in educating companies about the many potential benefits of using EPC technology in retail, manufacturing, supply chain and other operations."

This year's EPC Connection will feature end users presenting candid case studies about the use of RFID technologies in various applications, the challenges they overcame and the benefits they are achieving. The event will also host leading academics, vendors and systems integrators who will address a variety of implementation issues, as well as include an exhibition of EPC technologies by leading EPC vendors.
