Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL, Bio Asia Pacific, and FutureCHEM INTERNATIONAL 2023 marked a milestone by hosting the largest number of participants in the last decade. The event welcomed 11,095 attendees from 34 countries, with the top five participant countries being the Philippines, India, China, Singapore, and Malaysia. This diverse attendance, comprising over 45% investors and buyers, led to fruitful business negotiations during the three-day event, held from 6-8 September 2023, at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center (BITEC).

Organised by VNU Asia Pacific in collaboration with the Science and Technology Trade Association (STTA) and the Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences (TCELS), the event showcased the resilience of the laboratory equipment industry, resulting in business negotiations worth over 600 million Baht in the Asia region by year-end.

Mr Anucha Parnpichate, Senior Project Manager of VNU Asia Pacific, expressed the organisers' satisfaction with the event's success. He highlighted that the substantial attendance figures signify Thailand's ability to overcome economic challenges due to the pandemic, demonstrating readiness to revitalise businesses in the laboratory equipment, life sciences, and chemistry sectors. The event attracted attendees primarily from the chemical, food and beverage, biotechnology, laboratory equipment, and medical device industries. Notably, 70% of pre-registered attendees participated in the show, demonstrating significant interest.

Dr Jittiporn Thammajinda, Chief Executive Officer of Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences, emphasised the significance of Bio Asia Pacific 2023 as a gateway to the life sciences industry, particularly in healthcare and wellness. The event brought together innovators, technologists, and laboratory experts, with a focus on emerging disease identification and entrepreneurial innovation. Business matching opportunities were a key feature, aiming to facilitate collaborative deals.

The success of the event was a testament to the comprehensive coverage it provided across three co-located shows: Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL showcased laboratory equipment for scientific laboratories, Bio Asia Pacific presented research, innovations, and technology in life sciences, biotechnology, and healthcare, and FutureCHEM INTERNATIONAL highlighted chemical innovations for future industries. The event spanned over 14,000 m2, featuring more than 270 exhibitors and over 500 leading brands.
