Thursday, 17 June 2004 ( #162 )
The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) has secured 12 sponsors for its Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Knowledge Centre at ProMat 2005. The sponsors are: Accu-Sort Systems; DataMax; Escort Memory Systems; FKI Logistex; HK Systems; HighJump Software; The Kennedy Group; Material Handling Institute; Orbis; Provia Software; RedPrairie; and Siemens Dematic. "With the partnership of (the) RFID industry, ProMat 2005 will be at the forefront of providing responsible education and well-planned and broad application of RFID," said to Richard Ward, MHIA's executive vice-president of professional development. "D-day for RFID appears to be January of 2005, but the real impact will come later as the value proposition for all supply chain partners becomes better understood." ProMat's RFID Knowledge Center will include multimedia presentations and information from companies in the forefront of RFID adoption. ProMat 2005, from January 10 to January 13, will host more than 650 exhibitors at McCormick Place South in Chicago, Illinois.
