The logistics link record breakers!

The RFID seminar presented jointly by industry specialists inotec UK and Intellident at last month’s Logistics Link 2005 drew almost twice the attendance expected, with more than 140 people attending the four seminars spread over the two-day exhibition.

And the seminar was not the only record breaker. The number of logistics professionals attending Logistics Link 2005, held at Sandown Park, Esher on February 1 and 2, was the best ever having totalled 1,699 over both days.

inotec says that three of the four RFID seminars, exceeded the room capacity and latecomers had to be accommodated by forwarding the PowerPoint presentations on disc after the event.

David Drinnan, managing director of inotec UK, comments: “The attendance shows the high level of interest in this exciting new technology. The standard of attendees was very impressive with over 40% being at director or senior management level. The seminar was very well received as we tried to take the mystery out of RFID and give real examples of the strengths, and limitations of the technology.
