Radio frequency identification (RFID) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are delivering dramatic improvements in business efficiencies. These technologies have fully matured, and are helping companies to reduce the amount of time staff members spend conducting inventory counts by more than 90 percent, while also enhancing safety, automating processes, and decreasing the amount of time personnel waste searching for containers and tools. Businesses worldwide are deploying RFID solutions to improve customer service, reduce expenses and boost efficiencies.

This year's RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition, held on Apr. 10-12, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., featured more than 100 hours of education, including more than 50 new end-user case studies. The program consisted of preconference seminars, a main conference (keynotes and tracks) and post-conference master classes, with presenters explaining how to overcome implementation challenges, achieve business benefits, track and manage assets, and improve operations. More than 3,000 visitors attended this year's conference.

LIVE! 2018, cornerstone-sponsored by SML, featured eight industry tracks. The event also offered eight preconference seminars, two post-conference workshops and the co-located (IEEE RFID 2018 conference.

Attendees had the opportunity to register for RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate training. This one-day, fast-track course provided a solid foundation for how to design, install, configure, monitor and troubleshoot an RFID system in the field. The training prepared participants for the Institute's Certified Associate exam, which was delivered onsite at the event.

Recordings of the event's speaker presentations are now available in RFID Journal's online video library. Links to videos of the keynotes, general sessions and preconference seminars are provided on the following pages, along with PDFs of the slides used in those presentations (not all speakers have granted permission to have their presentations and/or slides archived).
