Analytica 2008 - approximately 32,500 visitors from 111 countries at this year's fair confirmed the upward trend in the industry. The number of visitors was up nearly 20 percent compared to the 2006 fair. The number of international visitors increased by more than 60 percent compared to the last analytica. Besides countries that are traditionally well represented such as Austria and Switzerland, the countries that accounted for the largest number of visitors included Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Italy, France, the Netherlands, the United States, the Czech Republic and Spain. The countries that had the largest growth rates included Central and Eastern European countries like Rumania, the Russian Federation and Serbia.

Analytica Conference: A Unique platform for modern analysis...

The number of visitors who attended the analytica Conference was also impressive. The rooms where the scientific conference was held, which are in the immediate vicinity of the exhibition halls, were overflowing at times. The first-rate lectures, which were organized by the German Chemical Society (GDCh), the Association for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) and the German Association for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (DGKL), covered the entire range of exhibition themes, running the gamut between science and industry. The analytica Conference, which featured four parallel lecture series and 24 individual symposia, featured a total of 121 lectures, and 65 posters were published. Half of the speakers were from other European countries, Canada and the United States. The involvement of international scientific associations such as EuCheMs (European Association of Chemical and Molecular Sciences) also reflected the global nature of this year's fair. According to Manfred Braun, Director of the Association for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM), "The analytica Conference was a complete success. The topics made an impression on visitors and exhibitors alike. The people who spoke at the various sessions included leading international specialists in their disciplines such as proteomics. The conference rooms were overflowing with some 1,500 audience members."

The platform for analysis, laboratory technology and the life sciences will keep on moving. Preparations are already underway for analytica China, which will be held in Shanghai from September 23 – 25. Six months later, i.e. from March 18 – 20, 2009, the brand new analytica Vietnam will be held in Hanoi, and shortly after that, analytica Anacon India takes place in Hyderabad from September 29 – October 1, 2009. The next analytica in Munich will be held from March 23 – 26, 2010.(Source
