RFID Journal has unveiled the finalists for its 2017 RFID Journal Awards. The winners will be announced at RFID Journal LIVE! 2017, the company's 15th annual conference and exhibition, to be held at Arizona's Phoenix Convention Center on May 9-11. All finalists in the end-user categories will be invited to speak at the event, and the winners, along with the other end-user finalists, will receive a prestigious crystal award.

"Each year, the scope of projects expands as RFID technology matures," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor.
