(RFID World Canada) The inaugural NFC Bootcamp held in Toronto April 3 and 4, 2013 at the Marriott Downtown was an exciting event for all who attended. The sold-out event attracted a wide range of participants from start-ups wanting to learn more about how the technology works to global organizations exploring how to leverage near field technology to further enhance their customer experience.
Host RFID Canada, and speakers from ABNote NA, Blue Bite, TapTrack, GaugeMobile and other thought leaders engaged the participants on the NFC ecosystem, uses and current implementations, as well as hands-on training on coding and reading tags and creating NFC-based campaigns.
According to one of the participants, “It was a great balance between geek tech talk and marketing and implementation. Something for everyone.” Another noted, “It was a great and informative two days. The topics were relevant; the presenters were knowledgeable; and the length was perfect.”
The response and interest within Toronto was overwhelmingly positive, and NFC Bootcamp is now planning a return to Toronto potentially later this year. Please contact us if you are interested in attending a NFC Bootcamp in the future.
The speakers at the Toronto NFC Bootcamp were Robert Sabella from OTA Ventures, Bob Moroz from RFID Canada, Jim Ellis from ABNote, Mikhail Damiani from Blue Bite, Tarek Luka from NFC thought leader, David Shalaby from TapTrack and Tony Vassiliev from Gauge Mobile.
