To better reflect the rapid growth of the NFC platform and our expectation of future innovations, ITAC is pleased to announce our renamed RFID / NFC and Sensor Technology Forum.

To kick-off this initiative, RFID Canada has developed an educational RFID / NFC Business WebEx for the benefit of ITAC members.   The WebEx will focus on how business leaders can increase revenue and relate an exciting customer experience using new RFID / NFC technology.  ITAC members will be introduced to a revolutionary way to brand, use, interact and embrace technology and how to integrate business and NFC technology to benefit the bottom line.

RFID / NFC technology can provide solutions for the following areas:

  • Payments
  • Patient care (health care)
  • Security and access control
  • Social media marketing integration
  • Enhancing events (e.g., music festivals, sporting events, theme parks)
  • Retail marketing
  • Magazine advertising
  • Branding
  • Smart posters

ITAC's RFID / NFC Business WebEx will be offered on the two following dates (same content for both sessions):

  • November 7 – 9:30 am to 10:30 am
  • November 15 – 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm
