Chicago, Ill., Sept. 28, 1999 - Chicago will become the bar code capital of the world for four days beginning October 4, when it hosts SCANTECH '99, a major technology exhibition and conference which brings together the world's major players in the $12 billion automatic data capture industry. The 18th annual SCANTECH, being held on the 25th anniversary of the first barcode scanner at the supermarket point of sale, is expected to draw thousands of attendees.
