Mar 22 2019 Read 252 Times

Returning to the NEC, Birmingham on the 30 & 31 October 2019, Lab Innovations expects to draw together more than 150 leading scientific suppliers and around 3,000 attendees to discuss the latest scientific developments and equipment. This dedicated laboratory industry tradeshow, now in its 8th year, enjoys support from some of the UK’s leading scientific institutions and industry players including Analytix, Anton Paar, Cole-Palmer, Eppendorf, GAMBICA, IKA, Perkin Elmer, SLS, Shimadzu and Thermo Fisher Scientific are among the big industry players participating for 2019.

Celebrating 2019 as the International Year of the Periodic Table, the Royal Society of Chemistry will focus on this theme in its dedicated theatre and several related networking events taking place across the two days.

In collaboration with Cleanroom Technology, a Cleanroom Hub will provide a zone for suppliers of cleanroom-specific equipment, which incorporates a seminar pod, a networking lounge and exhibitor pavilion.

First-time exhibitors will also be able to showcase new products in a dedicated village area and the well-received SLS pavilion has expanded to accommodate up to 20 of its partners suppling laboratory equipment, chemicals and consumables.

The ‘Sustainable Laboratory’ will also provide an opportunity for attendees to speak with leading UK universities on how they made use of ‘green’ equipment and processes to achieve sustainable results while a bespoke meetings concierge service will also provide visitors and exhibitors with the opportunity for pre-arranged meetings.

Phil Ellis, Equipment Services Manager, Aberystwyth Innovation and Enterprise Campus Ltd summed up his first visit and the importance of making connections: “This is the first time I have attended Lab Innovations and I have ended up coming both days due to the amount of connections we were making. Besides networking, Lab Innovations has given me the opportunity to keep up-to-date as the entire market is here. I will definitely come again.

Gerald Law, CEO Innovation DB, member of the Lab Innovations advisory board said that: “The advisory board comes together a couple of times a year to define the direction of the annual event. This year the agenda will feature laboratory automation and informatics, the recruitment of young talent into STEM, the implications of Brexit, of course sustainability and a lot more. Watch this space for further announcements!”
