New York, NY (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
RFID Journal, the world's leading media and events company covering radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, announced today that RFID Journal LIVE!, it's annual conference and exhibition, was chosen by Folio Magazine as one of three finalist for the third annual FAME awards in the Best Conference and Exhibition category. The winners of the award will be announced on March 19 in New York City.
The FAME Awards (FOLIO: Awards for Magazine Events) recognize the best of the best in magazine-powered events. The awards spotlight the fast-growing event initiatives in the magazine industry for all publications, including consumer, business to business, association and regional magazines.
Among the other magazines nominated are The Atlantic, O The Oprah Magazine, PC Magazine, Forbes Magazine and New York magazine.
"I'm absolutely thrilled that RFID Journal LIVE! was chosen as a finalist in the first year we entered," said Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal. "It confirms what I've always known -- that our events team, led by Kim Ray, and our editorial team apply their skills, dedication, creativity and hard work to deliver great content, a great experience and a tremendous amount of value for attendees' money."
RFID Journal LIVE! is the largest and most important RFID event in the world. More than 2,500 people attended the 2007 event, including most leading early adopters and pioneers of the technology. The event has become known globally for providing the highest quality educational experience with a comprehensive program, objective speakers and the editorial integrity that attendees now look for in technology events.
Moreover, RFID Journal LIVE! attracts the highest quality sponsors and exhibitors, showing the latest products and services. This year, the exhibit hall will feature numerous innovative new products that will reduce the deployment costs and total cost of ownership of RFID enterprise systems.
And RFID Journal LIVE! features numerous hands -on demonstrations and RFID -enabled games that enable attendees to learn about the technology in a fun, interactive setting.
"I know the competition for this award is tough," said Roberti. "We're up against Oprah Winfrey's publication and other competitors, but there is no doubt in my mind that we put on an event that serves attendees like no other in the world. That's why we've grown so quickly and that's why we were named as a finalist."
