USER DAY, September 28th
Connecting Users.

On User Day, It is All About Use Cases!

User Day on Thursday, September 28th, focuses on realised use cases grouped into five thematically sorted expert forums. All participants will gain exclusive insights into RFID and wireless IoT applications in processes of various companies from the areas of industrial production, logistics, healthcare, retail, consumer IoT and security. Experienced users present realised integrations and talk about the journey from idea to roll-out.

The User Day offers five forums on the following topics:

  • Forum 1 – Industrial IoT
  • Forum 2 – Logistics & Supply Chain
  • Forum 3 – Healthcare
  • Forum 4 – Retail
  • Forum 5 – Security & Consumer IoT
Forum 1 - Wireless IIoT
