CHICAGO – The National Marine Manufacturers Association will hold an informational seminar at the Marine Aftermarket Accessories Trade Show – July 8-11 in Las Vegas – to help marine industry suppliers adopt the new radio frequency identification system many of the world’s largest retail buyers are beginning to require.
In a press release this morning, NMMA said the seminar would help suppliers find out what they need to know and when they need to be prepared to implement RFID in order to do business with stores such as Wal-Mart. Many buyers are requiring their suppliers to place radio frequency identification tags on their packaging or products, NMMA said.
“This requirement will impact all facets of a supplier’s business, and we are very excited to have the Global RFID director of Wal-Mart speak to attendees at MAATS about this new technology and what suppliers can expect,” said MAATS project manager Kathleen Clickett.
There are five educational seminars scheduled for MAATS, each providing expert advice on how attendees can improve their supply chain and their business. A few of the highlights include:
