RFID Journal Cancels LIVE! 2020, Announces Immersive Virtual Event
Maintaining the health and safety of every member of the incredible RFID community, as well as that of the RFID Journal team, is paramount to us. In consultation with the industry, we postponed RFID Journal LIVE! at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., from April 28-30 to September 9-11, 2020. Amid growing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and after having extensive discussions with many of you on the viability of our postponement dates, we have been forced to formally cancel RFID Journal LIVE! 2020.
The cancellation of the live event is due to the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the latest government data, measures, and guidelines on the phased reopening plans in the U.S.; current restrictions on congregating and large gatherings imposed by states and other government and public health authorities; the inability of RFID Journal’s international community to travel to the event due to travel restrictions and bans; and the various company-imposed travel restrictions on employees affecting attendees and participating companies.
“RFID Journal LIVE! is an important annual event for the RFID industry, in which buyers, sellers, researchers, academics and others come together, from around the world, to meet, share ideas and do business,” said Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal. “We’re disappointed that we will not be able to hold a face-to-face event this year, but we want to keep the industry moving forward by holding a highly interactive virtual event, with great conference sessions, exhibits and networking opportunities.”
RFID Journal Virtually LIVE! 2020 will be an engaging and an immersive virtual experience with features for the entire RFID community. Two days of live-cast sessions will feature case studies in key industries—Retail and Apparel, Manufacturing, Health Care, and Defense and Aerospace—as well as sessions on how to build out an RFID infrastructure, how to integrate RFID with blockchain and other solutions, and much more.
Attendees will be able to visit exhibitors in their booth, read materials, learn about product offerings and chat live with exhibitors. We are confirming dates for the fall event and will be sharing additional information very soon.
“Nothing can replace the value of a face-to-face gathering, but RFID Journal Virtually LIVE! will come close,” said Roberti. “If you are looking to research RFID solutions and find answers to your business problems, this online event will go a long way toward meeting your needs.”
RFID Journal LIVE! will return as a physical event April 27-29, 2021, at the Phoenix Convention Center. RFID Journal is working with the venue and hotels to ensure the event is productive, safe and healthy for our exhibitors and attendees.
“As always, we appreciate the ongoing support of our readers, event attendees, advertisers and sponsors,” Roberti said. “I’m grateful for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging times.”
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy.
