Lab Innovations will return to the NEC, Birmingham, for its 8th successive year on 30-31 October 2019. As the UK’s only trade show dedicated to the laboratory industry and ‘Best Trade Show’ winner at the 2019 Exhibition News awards, it is growing year on year, enjoying support from many of the UK’s leading scientific institutions. This year will see Lab Innovations’ largest ever exhibitor and visitor base, providing more exciting product launches, innovation and discussion than ever before.

Key scientific companies and institutions

Over 150 leading scientific suppliers and 3,000 attendees will again discover, debate and discuss the latest scientific developments and equipment. Analytix, Anton Paar, Cole-Palmer, Eppendorf, GAMBICA, IKA, Perkin Elmer, SLS, Shimadzu and Thermo Fisher Scientific are among the many suppliers and manufacturers for 2019. All will be presenting cutting-edge equipment applicable to a plethora of industries, including life sciences, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, materials science and food and drink.

Education and CPD points

Lab Innovations offers many CPD-accredited educational opportunities, enabling visitors to earn CPD points when they visit the show. This year the Royal Society of Chemistry will be celebrating the International Year of the Periodic Table in their dedicated theatre and several related networking events taking place across the two days. The Perkin Elmer-sponsored “Insights and Innovations” theatre will once again be organised by Laboratory News, providing insight into the latest discoveries and discussing best practices and day-to-day challenges in the lab.

Novel laboratory and cleanroom products

For cleanroom specialists, the Cleanroom Hub, in collaboration with Cleanroom Technology, will provide a dedicated zone for suppliers of cleanroom-specific equipment. It incorporates a seminar pod with 2-days of educational content, a networking lounge and dedicated exhibitor pavilion.

First-time exhibitors will showcase products never seen before at Lab Innovations in the adjacent “Lab News Village”. Additionally, the well-received SLS pavilion will expand for its second appearance at the show, providing an opportunity to participate for twenty partners of the UK’s largest independent supplier of laboratory equipment, chemicals and consumables.

Hot scientific topics

Lab Innovations is guided by an Advisory Board - composed of representatives from some of the UK’s scientific institutes, suppliers and publications - which meets regularly to consider the challenges and industry trends in order to steer conference topics and shape the event. With sustainability high on the UK agenda, the ‘Sustainable Laboratory’ will return for 2019, providing opportunities for attendees to speak with leading UK universities on how they are using ‘green’ equipment and processes to achieve sustainable results.

Enhanced networking opportunities

New for 2019, a bespoke meetings concierge service, will provide visitors and exhibitors with the opportunity to pre-arrange meaningful meetings with exactly the companies or attendees they want to discover and do business with. This exciting new initiative will accentuate the event’s position as the leading meeting place for Laboratory professionals and suppliers.

Phil Ellis, Equipment Services Manager, Aberystwyth Innovation and Enterprise Campus Ltd summed up his visit to Lab Innovations last year, 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.”

Save the date: 30-31 October 2019, NEC, Birmingham.
