An inside look at RFID Journal LIVE! 2011

LIVE! 2011 Testimonials

"Excellent show that really highlighted ways to operationalize RFID within health-care organizations!"
—Rudolph Santacroce, P.E., Shands HealthCare

"This is the first year that I've been able to come to the RFID Journal LIVE! conference. I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I could learn here. There were several exhibits that had some products that I didn't know anything at all about, and others that I knew about, but that have some next-generation products they were showing, or even things that are not yet announced to the public, but you get a sneak preview of them. Some of these are very exciting. Some of these look like things we can use either in our products, or to make better use of our products, by putting RFID in the tires."
—Jay Sinnett, Michelin Research and Development

"I have been to a lot of conferences, but this is the most well organized, professional conference I have ever attended. The speakers presented their material with clarity and energy; each was willing and proud to discuss their area of expertise. I am impressed by the whole process! I really look forward to next year—it seems to get better every year."
—Jerry Kaproth, NASCAR

"This was an important event for my business, and due to the efforts of your entire team, my clients' needs were more than met. It is people who make things happen. The energy and enthusiasm you and your team delivered to the conference greatly assisted in keeping the buzz alive."
—Michael McCartney, QLM Consulting
