Mar 04 2008 Read 3918 Times

More than 1,000 exhibitors are expected at analytica 2008, which is being held at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre from April 1 – 4, 2008. That is an increase of nearly 20 percent over the last analytica. It also means that analytica has once again reaffirmed its position as the leading international trade fair for analysis, laboratory technology and biotechnology. When it comes to the number of exhibitors, the amount of exhibition space and the presence of global market leaders, analytica is the largest trade show in the laboratory-technology sector.

Munich, February 27, 2008 – analytica 2008 surpassed its target four weeks before the beginning of the exhibition: Munich International Trade Fairs is expecting 950 exhibitors – and more than 1,000 companies from 34 countries are currently registered. That corresponds to a nearly 20 percent increase compared to analytica 2006, which had 847 exhibitors from 32 countries.

Italy, France and Switzerland are the exhibitor nations with the largest increases. Besides the international companies with their own exhibitors, there will also be several joint exhibits at analytica 2008 including stands for companies from Great Britain, Spain, the State of Pennsylvania, the Czech Republic and the USA. For the first time ever, there will also be a China Pavilion.

"I am very pleased that analytica 2008 is so highly regarded among industry representatives. It shows that analytica is living up to its reputation as a leading international exhibition and, as such, is a must for decision-makers and users in laboratories and their customers," said Hans-Joachim Heusler, Managing Director at Munich International Trade Fairs. According to Heusler, who is in charge of analytica, "That is due in part to the related-events program, which was expanded to include several new elements in 2008: For the first time ever, there will be two information forums – the Innovations & Technology Forum and the Business & Markets Forum – where visitors can attend practice-oriented lectures and panel discussions. Besides the traditional Job Day on the last day of the fair, April 4th, for the first time ever there will also be a Finance Day, which brings new companies that are searching for capital together with investors so that they can gather information about collaboration and promotion opportunities.
