This year's event will look at strategies for keeping the cost down. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with RFID vendors offering cost-effective solutions.

Manufacturing and operations professionals: RFID is being used to track parts inventory and raw materials, manage work-in-process, manage finished goods inventory and much more. This year's event addresses all of these manufacturing and operational issues and many others.

IT professionals: Information technology is a critical component of any RFID system, and this year's event will educate professionals in the IT sector about how they can add RFID to their current product offerings by understanding the fundamentals of EPC data standards, and how to leverage RFID data.

Packaging professionals: RFID tagging will have an impact on packaging professionals, because they will be involved in deciding how packaging will be tagged, where the tag will be placed and how to ensure tagging doesn't slow down existing processes.
