better serve your needs, we've created a special program in which a limited number of RFID Journal LIVE! attendees can schedule free one-on-one consultations with experts and get their particular questions answered on-site. Our experts will recommend which sessions you should attend, and
which vendors you should visit on the exhibit-hall floor.
