What's the conference about? Free exhibition pass
The Conference has been great and I have particularly enjoyed the presentations on NFC. Of course there were many other great sessions I wanted to attend, but there just isn’t enough time! The Conference is a great way of gaining other people’s points of view on topics affecting our industry, and a way of sharing our experiences. The Expo is also a good way to learn from all the companies present and look at all the new technology coming into the marketplace
