RFID Journal, the world’s leading media and events company covering radio frequency identification (RFID) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, announced today that SML RFID, a leading provider of passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID inlays and software solutions, has signed on to be the Cornerstone Sponsor of RFID Journal LIVE! 2019. This event—RFID Journal’s 17th annual conference and exhibition—is the world’s premier trade show focused on RFID and its many business applications, and will be held on Apr. 2-4, at Arizona’s Phoenix Convention Center.

LIVE! 2019 will feature four industry-specific and four how-to conference tracks, as well as six in-depth preconference workshops, fast-track training presented by RFID4U, the RFID Journal Awards, RFID Professional Institute certification training and the co-located IEEE RFID 2019 event. In addition, the conference will offer exhibits and demonstrations conducted by the industry’s leading technology firms.

“SML RFID was our Cornerstone Sponsor last year, and we are pleased to continue the relationship,” says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal’s founder and editor. “We’re excited about the advancement we are seeing in RFID adoption around the world, and SML has been a leader in making that happen.”

“RFID technology is increasingly being adopted throughout various industries. In particular, we are seeing retailers implement the technology at an exponential rate to better enhance their daily operations,” says Dean Frew, SML’s CTO and senior VP of RFID solutions. “As the technology further establishes itself, RFID Journal LIVE! is the optimum opportunity for leaders within the industry to come together to discuss how the technology will continue to evolve and revolutionize multiple sectors.”
