Fireside Chat with Aileen Ryan

Clearing up the misconceptions around the RAIN Alliance


Recorded on April 12, 2023


Watch the on-demand webinar with the President of the RAIN Alliance, Aileen Ryan. 

The RAIN RFID market is growing. Billions of items have digital identities enabled by RAIN RFID tags, and that number has the potential to grow to trillions during this decade. The RAIN Alliance is at the forefront of promoting the adoption of the technology and the RAIN RFID brand. 

But what is the RAIN Alliance? Why should companies working with the technology or utilizing the technology join the alliance? What do they get out of it? We plan to ask these and other questions related to the industry from Aileen when she is coming to visit our office in Helsinki. 

Discussion topics:

  • What is driving the adoption of RAIN RFID technology?
  • How are RAIN and UHF RFID different?
  • What is the RAIN Alliance organization all about?
    • Are RAIN meetings for members only?
    • Do I need a license to utilize the RAIN RFID logo?
    • Why should companies utilizing the technology join the RAIN Alliance?
  • Questions from the webinar audience

If you have a question you would like us to ask Aileen, please send your question in advance to
