Businesses around the world are deploying radio frequency identification technologies across a wide range of sectors in order to improve customer service and efficiencies, as well as lower their expenses. With that in mind, this year's RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition, held on Apr. 15-17, at California's San Diego Convention Center, featured more than 50 end-user presentations discussing new applications for RFID, real-time location system (RTLS) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. The speaker sessions explained how to overcome implementation challenges, achieve business benefits, track and manage assets, and improve operations. More than 3,000 visitors attended the event—an increase of 8 percent over last year's attendance (see RFID Journal Announces LIVE! 2015 Highlights).
LIVE! 2015, cornerstone-sponsored by Zebra Technologies, featured eight conference tracks—four industry-specific tracks (Manufacturing, Retail/Apparel, Defense/Aerospace, and Health Care/Pharmaceutical) and four how-to tracks (Innovation, Technology and Infrastructure, Supply Chain/Logistics, and Visibility/Traceability). In addition, the conference included seven preconference seminars, four post-conference workshops, and two co-located events (IEEE RFID 2015 and the new Internet of Things Conference).
Recordings of the event's speaker presentations are now available in RFID Journal's online video library. Links to videos of the conference's keynotes and general sessions, as well as the pre- and post-conference seminars and workshops, are provided on the following pages, along with PDFs of the slides used in those presentations (not all speakers have granted permission to have their presentations and/or slides archived). Videos and PDFs from the main-conference and solution-provider sessions, as well as the RFID Journal Awards, will be spotlighted in the second part of this report, to be featured next week.
