RFID Professional Institute to Sponsor 10th Annual RFID Journal Awards—the Most Prestigious Awards Recognizing Industry Excellence
RFID Journal is now accepting submissions for next year's awards, which will be presented at LIVE! 2016, to be held in Orlando on May 3-5.
Dec 04, 2015—
RFID Journal today announced that its 10th annual RFID Journal Awards will be sponsored by the RFID Professional Institute, a nonprofit, scientific and charitable organization whose mission is to promote the "public good" that comes from having industry and professionals achieve high levels of professionalism through the research, education and development of the RFID science and knowledge base.
The RFID Journal Awards are widely recognized as the industry's most prestigious commendation. Next year's winners will be showcased at the RFID Journal LIVE! 2016 conference and exhibition, to be held on May 3-5 at the Orange County Convention Center, located in Orlando, Fla. RFID Journal is accepting submissions now through Jan. 29.
The 2016 RFID Journal Awards will be given in eight categories:
Best RFID Implementation
Best Use of RFID to Enhance a Product or Service
Most Innovative Use of RFID
Best New Product (Formerly Best in Show)
RFID Green Award
Best NFC Deployment
Best Internet of Things Deployment
RFID Special Achievement Award
Formerly called the RFID International Institute, the RFID Professional Institute was established in 2012 by 10 RFID industry members, including Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor, who served as the institute's original vice-chairman (see International RFID Institute Prepares Certification Program). In early March of this year, the nonprofit officially announced its name change in order to better reflect its long-term mission and scope.
"The RFID Professional Institute's mission is to promote professionalism within the RFID industry, and there is no better way to highlight this mission than to sponsor the prestigious global RFID Journal Awards," says Ian Robertson, the CEO of Supply Chain RFID Consulting and the incoming chairman of the RFID Professional Institute. (Once Robertson becomes chairman on Jan 1., 2016, Roberti will resume the role of vice-chairman.) "We are pleased to work with RFID Journal to highlight the best RFID deployments," Robertson states.
The editors of RFID Journal, as well as an independent panel of judges, will evaluate all entries and choose this year's winners. Awards submissions are due no later than Jan. 29. An awards ceremony will be held at RFID Journal LIVE!, and the winning entries will also be featured in RFID Journal's digital magazine.
