You can also register for Fast-Track RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate Training. During this advanced, one-day fast-track course provides a solid foundation to design, install, configure, monitor and troubleshoot an RFID system in the field. The training will prepare participants for the RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate exam, which will be delivered onsite at RFID Journal LIVE! 2018.

The main conference opens with two afternoon keynote addresses, followed by a cocktail reception in the exhibit hall (open to all attendees).
