Bologna, 13th February 2006 - On the 2nd and 3rd February the Datalogic 2006 Worldwide Sales and Partner Conference was held at the Sheraton Firenze Hotel, Italy, gathering together around 500 people from important ADC and IT companies worldwide.

The conference brought together Datalogic's management and sales force, as well as customers and partners from around the world, and was a special moment to share the results that have been achieved and the strategies planned for this year.

Pre-eminent guests were amongst the participants, including executives from Microsoft, IBM and Siemens in Italy and the USA, testimonials like David Krebs from VDC, and Martin Wolf from the Financial Times, in addition to Romano Volta and Roberto Tunioli, respectively Datalogic Chairman of the Board and CEO.

During the conference the strategies and objectives of the Group were presented, as well as the entire range of Datalogic Business Solutions divided according to reference market, with realistic demonstrations of the implementation of new and innovative products from Datalogic in their typical applications.

Furthermore, there were practical demonstrations on the use of RFID technology and self-scanning solutions, and an application by Laservall, a company specialised in laser marking of components and ID documents, which joined the Datalogic Group in 2004. There was also a demo in partnership with Zebra on field force automation for the sales force and route accounting applications.

Each business area was presided by specialised Datalogic personnel, providing all the relative information and replying to questions from participants. Each Datalogic Business Unit held seminars on topics related to the market and applications.

The conference finished with an Award Ceremony during the Gala Dinner where the Quality Partners who achieved the best results in 2005 were awarded, according to Business Unit and geographic area. Furthermore, awards were given to the Key Account Managers of Datalogic who distinguished themselves for having successfully reached annual goals.

"This is a yearly appointment, and this year it was particularly looked forward to, in order to find out more about Datalogic's strategies and management after the acquisition of the American company PSC," commented Roberto Tunioli, Datalogic CEO, on the two days in Florence. The choice of the location in the heart of Italy, after years abroad, reinforced Datalogic's Italian origins, a company with a broad international vision but with Italian roots.
