RFID Journal LIVE! Delivers Value, Guaranteed

I am so sure end users will benefit from attending LIVE! 2010, our eighth annual conference and exhibition, that I'm willing to guarantee it.
By Mark Roberti
Still, some people, burned by their experiences at other events, think this must be marketing hype. So this year, RFID Journal will guarantee that end users attending for the first time will find RFID Journal LIVE! valuable. We debated offering end users who have never attended a 100-percent money-back guarantee, but that option was unviable since people could just say they didn't find the event useful, even if they did.

What we can do is offer something of equal or greater value. If you are an end user attending LIVE! for the first time, and if you do not think the educational sessions are good and find the chance to meet 175 exhibitors valuable, I will offer you 5 hours of free consulting on your RFID project, now or in the future (I usually charge venture capitalists $500 per hour for consulting, so that's a $2,500 value). I'll help you choose the proper technologies, point you to the right systems integrator, evaluate the likelihood of success, and suggest the most cost-effective way to solve your business problem—even if that means using some technology other than RFID. Or I will brief your entire executive team on how to develop a smart RFID strategy, which I've been doing more of lately.

I stand by this guarantee, but I'm confident you'll feel—as 97 percent to 99 percent of our attendees tell us—that you received value for your money, and that the event was well worth your time and effort. Even those who have come from Asia and as far away as New Zealand have told us that.

Here's why: This is not a technology event. You won't be bored by engineers talking about things that don't mean anything to you or your business. You won't be bombarded by sales pitches masquerading as presentations. Instead, you'll hear from business folks, like yourself, who had a problem and employed radio frequency identification to solve it. They'll describe their projects in detail—including the challenges—and discuss how RFID helped them cut costs, streamline business processes and enhance their competitiveness. And they'll answer your questions.

This year's event will feature more than 50 end-user case studies in these key vertical industries:
• Aerospace• Health Care
• Construction• Manufacturing
• Consumer Packaged Goods• Oil & Gas
• Defense• Pharmaceuticals
• Food Production• Retail
• Government• Supply Chain/Logistics

RFID Journal's goal is to educate potential end users about the benefits of RFID, and we take pride in delivering a sound educational program at our RFID Journal LIVE! events. We also attract high-quality exhibitors, many of whom will demonstrate their solutions, so you can see how they work. If you have a business problem that you think RFID can solve, come and learn. You won't be disappointed—I guarantee it.
