Each year, the AIM and AIM NA Awards honor individuals and organizations that not only promote the industry, but demonstrate significant contributions to enhanced and new technologies.

Nominations for the 2018 AIM Awards are being sought to recognize outstanding achievement in five specific categories:

Additionally, the 2018 AIM North America Awards will recognize leaders in three categories:

• Professional of the Year Award: recognizes innovative and exceptional contributions to the development of the automatic identification industry through work as a contributor, collaborator or mentor.

• Organization of the Year Award: honors an organization in recognition of outstanding contributions and service that have furthered the growth of the industry.

• Automatic Identification Technology (AIT) in Government Award: recognizes an individual, committee, group or organization in the government sector that has championed the successful use of AIT at the local, state or national level.
