RFID Journal Awards 2009Showcasing the best of the RFID Industry
About the Awards
The RFID Journal Awards were created by RFID Journal to recognize the leaders in deploying RFID technologies, and to foster adoption of these technologies by highlighting the best deployments. The editors of RFID Journal have selected an independent panel of judges to evaluate entries and choose the winners. The winners will be announced at RFID Journal LIVE! 2009, our 7th annual conference and exhibition, being held April 27-29 in Orlando, Fla., at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel. Each winner will receive a Crystal Glass award and be featured in RFID Journal magazine.
For 2009, awards will be presented in four categories. The first three awards will be presented to end users, while the Best in Show Award will be presented to the RFID vendor exhibiting the best new RFID product (hardware, software or service) at RFID Journal LIVE! 2009.
