IDTechEx present Smart Labels USA 2004

IDTechEx are delighted to announce the World’s largest conference on smart labels: Smart Labels USA 2004, focussing on the big picture: RFID, smart packaging and beyond.

The conference will be on 17-18 March 2004 (optional workshops 16 &19 March 2004) at the Long Wharf Marriott hotel, Boston, MA, USA. More details are available at

This is the third Smart Labels USA event. Previously, 344 delegates from 20 countries attended. This year over 400 attendees are anticipated. It will also be the tenth global event run by IDTechEx covering RFID, smart labels & smart packaging.

The RFID industry is now gearing up with large orders beginning to be placed: by 2007 the RFID market will be worth $4 Billion, growing to at least $10 billion by 2013 (IDTechEx market research). RFID is creating new markets and tackling horrendous inefficiencies in others, and the flight towards ultra low cost electronics is bringing a wave of new disruptive technologies and processes. Existing technologies are becoming cheaper and thinner, the electronic world is moving into the printing world and brand new forms of electronic integration is appearing.

Smart Labels USA 2004 covers all of these topics and has an unusually strong focus on presenting experiences from actual implementations and discussion of the needs of users – by users or potential users themselves – providing a very healthy way to see what is really needed by the industry. This is the ideal – and largest - event to attend for industry intelligence, case study details, technology knowledge and networking on RFID smart labels, smart packaging and beyond. Specifically, IDTechEx are also introducing new networking systems to ensure you get the very most out of attending this event.

The conference agenda reflects the very latest in RFID case studies, pilots, business strategies and cutting edge technologies. The programme is devised based on our global consultancy experience from the US, Europe and Asia.

Day one (Wednesday 17th March) focuses on end users discussing their needs and experiences of RFID within the supply chain, pharmaceutical, all modes of transport, archiving, retail, industrial and warehousing and so on.
Day two (Thursday 18th March) concentrates on new innovations and exciting technology developments.

The three optional IDTechEx Workshops (Tuesday 16th March & Friday 19th March) are ideal for those wishing to learn about the technology and its uses from independent industry experts. Bring your concerns and share your experiences. The two pre-conference workshops cover RFID and Smart Packaging topics, bringing you up to date with the very latest developments and market information. The post conference workshop entitled ‘Implementing RFID’ will enable you to assess the benefits of the technology within your business and how you should go about using it.
