RFID Journal LIVE! Europe 2015 Report

Last month, RFID Journal held its 11th annual conference and exhibition in Europe. View the presentations from the event.

Throughout Europe, radio frequency identification technologies are being deployed at large, midsize and small companies to improve efficiencies, enhance visibility, reduce shrinkage and achieve other business benefits. This year's RFID Journal LIVE! Europe conference and exhibition, held on Nov. 9-10 in London, England, focused on educating end users in retail and other sectors about how RFID is benefiting companies in a variety of industries across the continent.

LIVE! Europe 2015 was cornerstone-sponsored by Zebra Technologies and silver-sponsored by Checkpoint Systems and HID Global. The two-day program was designed to help companies considering using RFID technologies to address business challenges, determine the best RFID technology for their needs, learn best practices from early adopters, find the right technology partners and move forward with deployment. This year's conference attracted 225 attendees—an increase of 10 percent from last's year LIVE! event.

Attendees were invited to sign up for a fast-track RFID certification course that took place during the first day of the event. The RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate Training, presented in partnership with RFID4U, offered a combination of lectures and hands-on lab exercises, providing a functional understanding of the use of readers, tags, printers and general-purpose input-output devices. The training provided a foundation to design, install, configure, monitor and troubleshoot an RFID deployment. Students learned how to configure RFID hardware to maximize functionality, and each participant received a voucher to take the exam online following the event. A total of 21 people attended this training course.

Recordings of the conference's speaker presentations are now available in RFID Journal's online video library. Links to videos of the event's sessions are provided below and 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.
