The event will take place on 9 October 2013 at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London and will focus on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).                                            

Speakers include Clemi Hardie, managing director of Noodle Live; Nigel Paine, who regularly delivers keynote speeches around the world, presenting ideas around leadership learning and technology; Greg Parmley, chief information officer at Intellitix; and Martin Jac, managing director of Think Different Events, acting as facilitator.

The TechNoPhobia series has been developed to give PCOs hands-on experience, including practical demonstrations of new technology and case studies. 

Jennifer Jenkins, ABPCO Chair and MCI UK Managing Director, said: "Providing educational content that meets the needs of our association focused members and helps their development is an integral part of our mission. We are here to add value to our members’ professional lives, increasing their capabilities and skills, whilst supporting them through networking and the development of relationships. 

"TechNoPhobia is a perfect example of this as we help industry professionals increase their understanding of technology, its relevance in a conference setting and the ways in which they can make technology work for them, their events and their clients. Like all of our education events it looks to the future and opportunities for personal development as attendees become more aware of technological trends and their usage."

The event is open to APBCO members and non members.
