RFID Journal Live! 2014 had a good showing this year, surpassing last years’ show in attendance with over 2800 attendees. The booths were packed and we know that some exhibitors walked away with close to 250 leads filled with real opportunities.
There was some interesting RFID marketing and RFID industry news this year, with Zebra buying up Motorola’s enterprise mobility business for $3.45 billion. The huge price tag is a good signal that AIDC has a good future. Airbus, Marks & Spencer, and Bechtel all announced expansions of their programs.
Other big news out of RFID Live! was the announcement of RAIN RFID Alliance started by AIM Global, Impinj, Smartrac, Intel and Google. I won’t be surprised to see the RAIN logo “raining” over the next year’s show as more people replace the mouthful “UHF EPC Class 1 Gen 2” with simply “RAIN”.
As part of our marketing efforts, we created some technology explainer videos of our clients’ “coolest demos.” Below is a demo featuring myself with the new FEIG OBID Blade Reader.
