Innovation is at the Heart of the Laboratory Industry
News Jun 16, 2015
Lab Innovations 2015, the UK’s only show dedicated to the latest laboratory technology and consumables, analytics and biotech equipment, returns to Birmingham’s NEC on 4 & 5 November 2015.
Katie Crocombe, Lab Innovations Event Manager comments: “We are thrilled that Lab Innovations has firmly cemented its place in the diary of all lab professionals as the number one lab show. It is going to be hugely exciting to see what our visitors will make of our newest introductions to the show, plus we have a new show feature which we will be unveiling later in the summer. It is also great to see so many new companies signing up to Lab Innovations, we obviously hope that they have a fantastic show and become an important part of the event in years to come.”
Last year’s event attracted key decision makers from leading international brands such as AstraZeneca, Diageo, GlaxoSmithKline, Lucozade Ribena Suntory, M&S, Sainsbury’s and Weetabix. Keen to reach such audiences, over 100 suppliers have already booked stands for the 2015 show. These include new exhibitors Scientific Laboratory Supplies, Bambi Air Compressors, Falcon Scientific, Radleys, Ohaus and Zinsser Analytic who will join major returning names such as Anton Paar, Buchi UK, Mettler Toledo, Oxford Biosystems Cadama, Retsch UK, Sympatec and Vacuubrand.
Andrew France, Business Unit Manager at Sympatec Ltd, remarked: "Lab Innovations is very important to us for the generation of new business and keeping in contact with existing customers - it has become a regular event in our business calendar."
On top of a packed exhibition hall, the conference programme has stepped up another gear this year, with three theatres on offer, providing both valuable and inspirational content. There is a very popular return to Lab Innovations for The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and Campden BRI, both of whom will be running top flight conference programmes. The RSC will be focusing on two main themes - ‘Pushing the Frontier of Science’ and ‘Business Growth’.
