  1. 1. CIRCULAR TO ALL GS1 SINGAPORE, EPCglobal SINGAPORE, ECR SINGAPORE & SMa MEMBERS EPCglobal / RFID Singapore Forum 2007 Making a Vision a Reality 16 – 17 May 2007 Le Meridien Singapore Hotel 100 Orchard Road Introduction Since the inception of EPCglobal, the number of EPCglobal subscribers has rapidly surpassed the 1000 mark worldwide across 12 major industries. A total of 12 major industries and 51 industry segments are represented in EPCglobal. Though EPCglobal maintains strong ties to the consumer packaged goods, its subscriber companies represent a wide range of industries from healthcare and life sciences to transportation and logistics, footwear and apparel, and aerospace, automotive and high technology. In only three short years, the EPCglobal community has ratified seven global standards, which has accelerated the development of hardware and software products for EPC/RFID implementations. More than 45 hardware and software products have been certified by EPCglobal and are in the market. In Singapore, A*Star, the government RFID research centre together with a Singapore company have developed a new generation EPCglobal Gen 2 reader. The size of the reader is about the size of a mobile phone and it will be sold at about US$100 during the second quarter of 2007. The launch of this new generation EPCglobal Gen 2 reader will cut the cost of the EPCglobal Gen 2 reader available in the market currently by 90% and thereby further stimulate the adoption of EPCglobal system by industries. As part of our efforts to accelerate industry adoption, bringing together all key stakeholders along the global supply chain and across industries, into its 4th year, the EPCglobal/RFID Singapore Forum and Exhibition is an event where you can learn directly from the leading and trusted authority on EPC/RFID implementation, industry best practices and global standards. The conference will feature eminent speakers from all areas of the supply chain, including leading retailers, suppliers, manufacturers and many others from the region who will be sharing with the audience the latest standards and technology developments, their real world experiences of deploying new technology and standards, their ROI learnings and practical solutions to meet business challenges. The exhibition, running alongside the 2 days conference will showcase the latest EPC/RFID technologies, applications and proven implementation solutions. Whatever your industry sector, if you are involved in managing and developing your supply chain or logistics, you simply cannot afford to miss this essential event. Why you should attend Attending this forum provides you with a rare opportunity to hear the latest developments on EPC/RFID implementations, standards, return on investment, business cases from the industry leaders and international experts from around the world as they share their visionary thoughts and insights of EPC/RFID.
