Lab Innovations wins prestigious ‘Best Trade Show’ award

Dedicated show for UK laboratory industry recognised by Exhibition News Awards

Lab Innovations, the UK’s only trade show dedicated to the laboratory industry, is delighted to announce that it has won the prestigious ‘Best Trade Show’ Exhibition News award. One of the key awards of the exhibition industry, recognition by the Exhibition News (EN) Awards underscores the quality and value of attending Lab Innovations for visitors and exhibitors alike. Lab Innovations beat a strong field of 12 shortlisted shows, including the Farnborough International Airshow.

Alison Willis, Divisional Director, Easyfairs, who accepted the award at the recent ceremony in London, said: “Winning the EN Award for Best Trade Show is such a huge achievement for Lab Innovations. We have always strived to produce an event that answers the needs of the scientific community and offers a platform for education, networking and discovery. The annual growth that Lab Innovations has seen since its launch is testament to the quality of the event. We would like to thank all of our partners, sponsors and attendees for all the support they have given us year-on-year. We have some exciting plans going forward and aim to continue to deliver the ‘Best Trade Show’ for our industry.”

The show’s evident success, achieving significant annual growth in both exhibitor and visitor numbers since launching in 2012, is a key reason for Lab Innovations’ receipt of this major award. Independent research shows a 43% increase in lab managers, 53% increase in lab technicians and 125% rise in procurement managers attending the 2018 show. Attendee satisfaction scores are also up year-on-year, with 88% of visitors and 89% of exhibitors in 2018 meeting their objectives for attending the event. 80% of visitors and 92% of exhibitors also see Lab Innovations as being important to their business. Exhibitors were demonstrably pleased - 76% immediately rebooked for 2019.

The buzz and broad mix of relevant visitors and exhibitors at Lab Innovations are among the drivers for such remarkable exhibition growth and attendee satisfaction. Simon Mortimer, Area Sales Manager, Veolia, noted of the 2018 show: “It’s been a very busy and lively show. We’ve had a really enthusiastic response and have been talking pretty much non-stop with laboratory decision makers from organisations ranging from universities and pharma companies, to the MoD and BP.”

Core to the event’s success and making it unmissable is the vast array of laboratory products on show, as well as its wealth of networking and educational opportunities. Among the many visitor draws are four scientific lecture theatres with daily keynote speakers and CPD-accredited conference streams.

As in many sectors at present, sustainability is a catalyst for innovation, so this new topic area generated excitement and great interest at the 2018 event, with post-show research highlighting this as a top reason for 10% of visitors attending.

Lab Innovations returns, with these key features and more, to the NEC, Birmingham on 30 & 31 October 2019.
