With 1523 attendees and 151 exhibitors and media partners, feedback from European Lab Automation was overwhelmingly positive.

The combination of ten comprehensive conference streams and workshops provided useful and relevant scientific content across a range of applications within laboratory automation. Following this success, the Congress Centre Hamburg (CCH) is being booked for next year.  The event is scheduled for 30 - 31 May 2012.

Support of the show from vendors has been positive, with exhibitors from this year commenting;

• Venomtech - “ELA 2011 was a successful show for Venomtech, as there was a near constant stream of delegates in the exhibition area. The lead up to the event was well organised and I found it easy to get all the information I needed from the Select Biosciences staff.”

• TAP Biosystems - “A great, focussed meeting, with attendees interested in our products. Very well organised at registration and during the course of the meeting. Professional, helpful and friendly staff across the board”

• Thermo Fisher Scientific - “Our presentations and workshop were well attended, with a high number of questions. The support of Select Biosciences staff at the event was good. Our overall impression of the meeting is positive.”

• KBiosystems - “Very pleased, will definitely be back next year.”

Ken Browne, Event Organiser and Director of Select Biosciences commented, “We are delighted with the success of the first ELA conference and exhibition and have received some fantastic feedback from vendors and delegates alike.” He continued, “We are aiming to fill the need for a pan-European Automation event, and establish ELA as the forum for combining scientific content with up-to-date technology. As such, we have already booked the date for the second ELA conference and hope to continue its success”
