Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL 2021 and FutureCHEM INTERNATIONAL 2021, took place on 27-29 October 2021, through a fully online platform due to the pandemic situation of COVID-19. At the beginning of September, Bio Asia Pacific 2021 was also held through a fully online platform. Organised by VNU Asia Pacific, in collaboration with Science and Technology Trade Association (STTA) and the Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences (TCELS), the event has received positive feedback from the many participants working in the scientific laboratory equipment, life sciences and chemical industries, who visited the exhibition and attended the online conferences and seminars.
Welcoming 7,737 participants from 34 countries globally, which was split between 5,613 conference attendees who attended 33 conferences and seminars by 130 keynotes and experts from various agencies from the public and private sectors, and 2,124 trade visitors who visited the virtual exhibition and booths, providing a means to establish linkage for manufacturers, trader and buyers into this platform.
Mr Anucha Parnpichate, Senior Project Manager, VNU Exhibition Asia Pacific Co, Ltd, said: “Despite numerous crises that urge the many organisers to adjust the strategy to organise the physical event to a fully online platform this year, VNU as an organiser continues to receive an unprecedented support from partner and stakeholders including the public sector, private sector and related educational institutions that help to make this year's event a success with full quality for the online exhibition and conferences that meet the needs of the industry this year. In 2022, we are confident that the situation will improve and the business sector especially the exhibition industry will return to new normal. We believe Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL & Bio Asia Pacific and FutureCHEM INTERNATIONAL will be convened fully under one roof. There will be many new highlights next year and the event is scheduled to organise in September at the BITEC as usual.”
VNU Asia Pacific launched the new campaign in 2021 to promote and create the engagement among academics and research institutes related to the scientific laboratory technology industry and the life sciences and chemical industries. This campaign was to grant the 5,000 THB scholarships for the student or postgraduate who pre-registered and attended the event. There were lucky winners from 3 educational institutions: Chiang Mai University, Chulalongkorn University and King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. It is hoped that this scholarship will be the starting point that helps to promote and build awareness to the students to enter more into this industry.
Mrs Ajchara Charoensook, Director of National Institute of Metrology (Thailand) stated: “Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL is a large platform that includes all the work related to the laboratory such as tools and equipment as well as the analytics, metrology experiments and research in different fields. It is a centre of knowledge, experts and the latest news updates on technology and innovation through seminars and academic conferences. It also creates opportunities for the business alliance, academic cooperation and enhance the development of national capacity for the technological tools development which will be beneficial to the operators, service users and visitors in the future.”
Dr Sirasak Teparkum, CEO of Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Science (TCELS) added: “At present, Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL can be considered as an internationally recognised exhibition of innovations, tools, equipment and technology in scientific laboratory equipment and is regarded as one of the leaders in the region. Hence, this will help to foster a broad research and development in many industries including the life science industry.”
Mr Suwan Pongsunk, President of Science and Technology Trade Association (STTA) explained: “Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL is the centre of modern technology presentation and a means for those who are interested in finding answers in science, technology and innovation.
