Award Finalist Sessions

The RFID Journal Awards were created to recognize the leaders in creating and deploying RFID technologies, and to foster the adoption of these technologies by highlighting best products and deployments. For this special track, we have invited the three finalists in each of four categories (Best RFID Implementation, Best Use of RFID to Enhance a Product or Service, Most Innovative Use of RFID, and the RFID Green Award) to make a brief presentation before the winners are announced during a special session to be held in the Exhibit Hall at 1:00 PM on May 2. Each winner will receive a crystal award during the award ceremony, and will be featured in RFID Journal's digital magazine. The finalists will offer their presentations in four meeting rooms, with each presenter allotted 15 minutes to discuss the deployment.
