analytica 2024: Setting the standard for global laboratory trade fairs

May 01 2024

In the bustling halls of analytica 2024, the premier international trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis, and biotechnology, industry leaders convened in Munich from 9 to 12 April. With 1,066 exhibitors showcasing cutting-edge innovations across the spectrum of laboratory technology, and a robust attendance of 34,000 visitors, analytica 2024 solidified its reputation as the global epicentre of the laboratory sector. Discussions and interactions revolved around solutions for the digitally empowered and sustainable laboratory of tomorrow.

Dr Reinhard Pfeiffer, CEO of Messe München, remarked: “analytica 2024 underscored its status as the preeminent trade fair for the laboratory sector, reflecting the resilience of the industry amidst challenging times. The event, in terms of both exhibitor and visitor participation, seamlessly continues its legacy established before the pandemic.” Armin Wittmann and Susanne Grödl, key figures behind analytica at Messe München, expressed pride in the event's ability to unite global expertise, emphasising its pivotal role in driving advancements across various facets of everyday life.

Enthusiasm among exhibitors was palpable, with Dr Gunther Wobser, Managing Partner of Lauda Dr R Wobser, observing: “analytica provided the much-awaited platform for crucial interactions and insights, shaping the trajectory of our industry amid economic uncertainties.” Mathis Kuchejda, Managing Director of Schmidt + Haensch, echoed the sentiment, highlighting the event's significance in fostering innovation and international collaborations.

International Labmate's stand was a resounding success, as confirmed by the lead retrieval service, which ranked it among the most visited stands at the show. Celebrating 50 years in publishing, visitors flocked to the stand to subscribe, enjoy refreshments at the bar, catch up with friends from the industry and and participate in the popular 'Spin to Win' competition.

A diverse supporting program delved into critical themes of digitalisation, AI, and sustainability, offering visitors immersive experiences of the laboratory of the future. From explosive live demonstrations on occupational health and safety to explorations of career prospects in the industry, analytica 2024 catered to varied interests and aspirations.

The analytica conference, boasting a record attendance of 2,225 participants, showcased over 180 lectures covering a breadth of analytical topics. Noteworthy sessions delved into sustainability, AI in diagnostics, and interdisciplinary applications of analytics, exemplifying the conference's role as a knowledge hub complementing the exhibition area.

The success of analytica 2024 sets the stage for future editions, with the next iteration which will take place from 24 to 27 March 2026, in conjunction with the analytica conference.
