VeriChip recently announced that its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Scott R. Silverman, will present at the ID World International Congress in Milan, Italy, which runs from November 3-5, 2009, and is the world's leading symposium on the future directions of identification technology. Mr. Silverman will discuss, among other things, the Company's in vivo glucose-sensing RFID microchip and virus triage detection system for the H1N1 virus. There will be more than 150 speakers at ID WORLD 2009, including visionaries, CEOs, key end users and government representatives from all continents, and thousands of attendees from across the globe.
The ID WORLD International Congress is the most comprehensive showcase on the evolving world of RFID, biometrics and smart card technologies, and is the only international forum that looks at the automatic identification industry as a whole, rather than focusing on a specific technology or vertical sector. It offers a full-scale and complete vision of social, technological and business aspects related to the deployment of the automatic identification systems. The ID WORLD International Congress has consolidated its position as the most comprehensive and highly targeted global summit on automatic identification.
