RFID Journal, the world’s leading media and events company covering radio frequency identification (RFID) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, has announced that Avery Dennison, the world’s largest UHF RFID provider, has signed on to be the signature sponsor for both RFID Journal LIVE! 2019 and RFID Journal LIVE! Retail @ RetailX 2019.

LIVE! 2019 will be RFID Journal’s 17th annual conference and exhibition. LIVE! is the world’s premier event focused on RFID and its many business applications. This year, the event will be held on Apr. 2-4 at Arizona’s Phoenix Convention Center. The conference will feature four industry-specific and four how-to conference tracks, as well as six in-depth preconference workshops, including a converter workshop (also sponsored and co-hosted by Avery Dennison), fast-track training presented by RFID4U, the RFID Journal Awards, and the co-located IEEE RFID 2019 event. In addition, LIVE! will offer exhibits and demonstrations conducted by the industry’s leading technology firms.

“Avery Dennison has been a leader in the RFID industry for many years, and we are extremely pleased to expand our relationship with these two important sponsorships,” says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal’s founder and editor. “Avery has been innovating RFID solutions for a wide array of difficult-to tag items for retail, food and other industries for the past 15 years.”

It is co-located with two other major retail events: GlobalShop, the retail industry’s largest design and merchandising trade show, and the Internet Retail Conference & Expo (IRCE), the leading event for e-commerce companies. These three events, co-located under the RetailX banner, are expected to attract more than 20,000 retail industry professionals.
