RFID Journal Awards 2011
Showcasing 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. Each year, the editors of RFID Journal select an independent panel of judges to evaluate entries and choose the winners. The winners are announced at our annual RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition in April. Each winner will receive a crystal award at the conference and be featured in RFID Journal magazine.
For 2011, awards will be presented in six categories. The first five 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! 2011.
