NEW YORK, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RFID Journal announced today that a record number of new products will be showcased in the exhibit hall at RFID Journal LIVE! 2014 (www.rfidjournalevents.com/live), the world's premier conference and exhibition focused on radio frequency identification (RFID) and its many business applications.

RFID technology is evolving quickly, and solution providers are introducing a new wave of innovative products to address the needs of companies in industries as diverse as retail, construction and health care.

"Gone are the days when you couldn't find a tag or reader that would work in a certain application," said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "There's almost nothing that cannot be tracked today via RFID, and there's a reader available for every application. Those who considered RFID a few years ago but found that it would not work for their needs should take a second look."
A number of new products being exhibited will also be featured in the Best in Show category of this year's RFID Journal Awards, and the event will also include a Coolest Demo Contest, to be held in the event's exhibit hall. These demonstrations will highlight the many applications and capabilities of radio frequency identification solutions.
LIVE! 2014 will feature four industry-specific and four how-to conference tracks, as well as eight in-depth preconference seminars and workshops, four post-conference seminars, fast-track training provided by RFID4U, and a co-located event, IEEE RFID 2014. What's more, the conference will offer exhibits and demonstrations conducted by more than 200 of the industry's leading technology firms. For more information, visit www.rfidjournalevents.com/live.
