The RFID Connect smartphone app is more than just the conference program guide in the palm of your hand—it's an interactive tool synched with the RFID Connect Web site, enabling you get more out of RFID Journal's events.

You can search for products, exhibitors and sessions you wish to attend, and add these to your event planner. You can also introduce yourself to other attendees and request meetings.

You can also filter the exhibitor list and booths on the floor plan, either by product category (tags, readers, software and so forth) or by the industry solutions they offer (health care, retail, etc.). Please see the video "Finding the Right Exhibitors," on the left, to see how this is done. We have created a series of videos for attendees and for exhibitors. Please visit the RFID Connect smartphone Help page to view short videos.

Q: Is my privacy protected?

A: Each member of RFID Connect can set his or her own preferences. You can hide your contact information, share it with everyone or share it with only those on your contact list within RFID Connect. If you attend an event, you can also choose whether to share your contact information with the exhibitors you plan to visit. Please read our Privacy Statement for additional information.

Q: How up-to-date is the information in the smartphone app?

A: The agenda and other information on the RFID Connect Web site are updated every night. Exhibitors may update their profiles at any time. Each time the smartphone app connects to the server, it downloads any updates in order to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information in the palm of your hand.

Q:How can my company sponsor the smartphone app?

A: Please contact your sales representative for advertising and sponsorship opportunities.

Q: How can I use the RFID Connect smartphone app to get more leads at an event?

A: The key is to use the RFID Connect Web site during the month prior to the event. If you visit the event Web site and click on "See Who's Coming," you will see a list of companies sending representatives to an event. If there is a company you have a solution for, type its name in the RFID Connect search engine. You will see the names of attendees from that company. You can then send them a request for a meeting, or an e-mail asking them to visit your booth.

Q: How can I get my company listed among the exhibitors in RFID Connect?

A: We add all exhibitors to the RFID Connect Web site and smartphone app automatically. However, you must create a profile before you can be added. All exhibitors are automatically given a Gold-level membership.

Q: How do I get my company listed by product category and industry solutions?

A: The smartphone app pulls information from each exhibitor's profile, which you should have filled out on the RFID Connect Web site. Be careful to choose only the products you actually sell and the industry solutions you actually provide. Adding items you don't actually offer will be counterproductive, since you will wind up fielding queries from attendees who are not potential customers, thereby limiting your time available to speak with those interested in your solutions.
