Jan. 17, 2008 - PRLog -- The Terrapinn 5th Annual RFID Asia Summit 2008 returns to Suntec, Singapore on April 8 – 11, 2008. RFID Asia Summit is an important part of the global trust to exploit RFID technology to solve some of the world’s long-standing business and social challenges.

Recognized as the largest gathering of practitioners in the region, this world-class event continues to attract a high powered mix of close to 200 international keynotes, business leaders and auto-ID technologists from around the world to address cutting-edge developments and economic opportunities in the region and beyond. RFID Asia Summit represents the single best opportunity both for government agencies and businesses operating in or looking to enter Asia to meet with, learn from and form partnerships with key players in the RFID ecosystem.

The Terrapinn RFID Asia Summit 2008 speaker line up features well known keynotes from “most admired” corporations the likes of Wal-Mart, MGI METRO, The Boeing Company, Rolls Royce and Lemmi Fashion that currently lead the world in RFID innovation and use. 2008 speaker composition comprises 45% from Australasia, 30% from Europe and 25% from the US providing a balanced, global perspective of RFID trends and insights within the Asia context.

This world class event has grown to become a week long extravaganza that includes the high level two-day executive conference, four specially designed master classes and the three day RFID trade exposition that features global RFID solutions and vendors under one roof for a one-stop-shop experience for the Asia RFID community. This suite of offerings provide scale and forms the best valued platform for companies to be seen and heard by a targeted audience looking for RFID products and strategic partnerships.

The two day conference offers specialized tracks for in-depth coverage of four key growth verticals – Healthcare/ Pharmaceuticals, Logistics/ Supply Chain, Aerospace/ Aviation, and Retail/ Lifestyle. Back by popular demand, the special country-by-country update provides delegates a snapshot of key government projects and initiatives for private sector collaboration by Asia’s RFID powerhouses: India, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore. This segment also features a Pan-Asia panel to discuss issues such as Asia’s ambitions and potential to compete with the RFID hubs of America and Europe.

On his experience at this event last year, 2006 Percival Award honoree Dr. Patrick King, Global Electronic Strategist at Michellin USA said, “I really am glad I went. I enjoyed myself. The travel worked great and the conference was outstanding. I was amazed at the rate of progress among the SE Asian countries in RFID development and execution. I expect that this will increase.”

On October 15, 2007, the world’s largest jetliner, the A380, made aviation by completing its first commercial flight from Singapore to Sydney with 455 passengers and over 10,000 RFID tags onboard. Aviation is one of the sectors seeing a transformation because of innovative auto-ID technology uses. The cross sector approach of a technology show like RFID Asia Summit promotes idea “cross-fertilization” and improves the quality of each discussion through diversity that vertical events cannot deliver.

“This summit is really a meeting of minds and is designed to help the industry focus on its key challenges in a collaborative and inclusive environment,” shares Ms Patricia Cheong, General Manager at Terrapinn Singapore, “The tremendous support we receive from vendors and end users is testimony to the positive impact this show has been in shaping the industry over the last five years. Our promise to the RFID community: we will continue to grow with you and commit resources to strengthen this brand for years to come.”
