"The partnership will allow both organizations to do more and share more with the industry about what is really going on with RFID. It's very exciting, and I look forward to many years of working together."

During this online virtual event, presenters will offer real-world case studies addressing such technology issues as how to ensure tag reads on metal components, tools and machines. What's more, attendees will be brought up to date regarding the RFID standards being used in the construction industry.

"We're extremely pleased to partner with FIATECH to provide valuable information on how RFID technology can be employed to improve operations in the construction sector," said Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal.
