RFID Journal announced today that SML will host an RFID Pop-up Retail Store in New York City in conjunction with RFID Journal’s RFID in Retail and Apparel conference and exhibition, which will be held on Oct. 6 at the Helen Mills Theater. Brand owners and retailers attending the event will have the opportunity to visit the pop-up store on Oct. 5-6 to see in action the latest RFID tags and hardware, as well as the company’s Clarity software, currently deployed at more than 1,000 stores worldwide.

“Retailers and brand owners will learn all about RFID in retail at RFID Journal’s conference, and will then get to see RFID in action at the SML RFID Pop-Up Retail Store,” says Dean Frew, SML’s CTO and senior VP of RFID solutions. “We will demonstrate RFID applications throughout the retail supply chain.”

RFID in Retail and Apparel is an exclusive, invitation-only event for retailers and brand owners. The conference will feature case studies presented by end users already utilizing radio frequency identification, as well as technology companies showcasing their latest products.

The conference sessions will cover the four foundational use cases for RFID in retail: inventory accuracy, out-of-stocks, product location and loss detection. Attendees will also learn how RFID is being used to enhance the customer experience, cycle-counting strategies, conversion and loss prevention. The conference will help attendees determine the best approach for their needs, learn best practices from early adopters and find the right technology partners to move forward with deployment.

In addition, attendees will be able to meet the RFID solution providers offering products and services aimed at the retail sector. Exhibitors already signed up for the event include Avery Dennison, Checkpoint Systems, Mojix, SML, Tageos, Tyco Retail Solutions and Zebra Technologies.

RFID in Retail and Apparel is free for qualified retailers and brand owners that apply via the event’s website. For additional information regarding the conference, and to make a reservation to visit the SML RFID Pop-Up Retail Store, visit
