NEW YORK, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- RFID Journal announced today it will hold its first European executive conference 11 to 12 October 2005 at the Hotel Okura Amsterdam, The Netherlands. RFID Journal LIVE! Europe (http://www.rfidjournallive.com/europe) will feature executive presentations from early adopters across Europe including Marks & Spencer, Metro and Tesco, and will be lead by RFID Journal founder, editor and global RFID expert Mark Roberti. "European companies have been among the global leaders in producing and using RFID technologies, but the use of RFID in the global supply chain creates some unique challenges for retailers, manufacturers and logistic providers," Roberti said. "With RFID Journal's unique, global perspective, this event will give end users a clearer view of what their next steps should be." More than 200 high-level executives at the two-day conference will explore topics that include how Europe's role in leading RFID adoption can spur the use of EPC technologies in the global supply chain, as well as the opportunities and risks faced by early adopters. Through interactive case studies, end users, independent experts and suppliers will discuss the future of EPC and ISO technologies in the 13.56 MHz and UHF bands; the impact of new regulations governing RFID readers; integration with suppliers in Asia, North America and throughout the world; and much more. The focus will be on deploying RFID profitably in retail, manufacturing and supply chain operations. Confirmed speakers to date include: * John Clarke, CTO, Tesco Stores Ltd. Supermarket giant Tesco began its secure supply chain rollout in order to track high-value and high- shrink products through their supply chain and into their stores. Completion of the project is expected by the end of 2005. * Dirk Heyman, Director Auto-ID Europe, Gillette Group International. One of the founding members of the Auto-ID Center at MIT in 1999, Gillette participates in setting EPCglobal standards, with a focus on outlining future challenges, business cases and possible next steps in development. * James Stafford, Head of RFID Project, Marks & Spencer (M&S). M&S, one of the UK's leading retailers of clothes, food and home products, uses RFID tags to track items of clothing, and is extending its RFID item- level tagging to other products including lingerie and the M&S' food supply chain. * Gerd Wolfram, Director IT Strategy, IT Buying and Development Services, Metro. Metro, the world's third-largest retailer, is successfully implementing RFID readers and tags at its biggest German distribution centre. To learn more about RFID Journal LIVE!
