What is a Plugfest?
Plugfests are one-week events designed to create a safe, real-world environment where developers with NFC Forum specified devices can verify device interaction across product implementations. They offer NFC Forum members and non-members device-device interoperability testing, end-to-end data sharing, and access to a library of various NFC Forum tags, smart posters and NFC Forum devices.
Testing NFC Forum implementations in early stages of development can reveal issues in products and may uncover issues in the specifications used before bringing them to market. All testing is confidential and occurs under the confidentiality agreement. Members and non-members are invited to attend, but non-members will need to sign the NFC Forum NDA to participate. Reporting for Plugfest events is managed by an independent, neutral firm to ensure confidentiality. Visit our Use Cases & Reporting page for more information on reporting.
