NFC Forum introduces special interest groups for vertical markets

NFC Forum special interest groups

The NFC Forum is launching a series of special interest groups in “key vertical markets” to support and accelerate adoption of the technology.

The Forum aims to bring together leaders from consumer electronics, healthcare, payments, retail and transport to collaborate on NFC implementation, interoperability, best practices, and future requirements.

The trade association will outline its plans in a pair of webcasts on 24 January. The 11am EST session features NFC Forum vice chairman and MasterCard executive James Anderson, while a 9pm EST session is timed for participants in the Asia Pacific region and features a presentation from NFC Forum chairman Koichi Tagawa.
