Lab Innovations 2019 - simplifying laboratory procurement
Birmingham, NEC, UK - 30 & 31 October 2019
As the UK’s only laboratory industry dedicated trade show, and ‘Best Trade Show’ winner at the 2019 Exhibition News awards, Lab Innovations is growing annually, supported by many of the UK’s leading scientific institutions. This year will be the largest ever show, with over 160 leading scientific suppliers providing more exciting product launches, innovation and discussion than ever before.
Key scientific companies: Abbott Informatics, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bruker, Eppendorf, Bigneat, IKA, Shimadzu, Elga Veolia, PerkinElmer, Analytix, Merck, Sartorius & SLS are among the many exhibitors for 2019. All will be presenting cutting-edge equipment applicable to a plethora of industries, including life sciences, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, materials science, food and drink.
Conference and CPD points: Alongside the extensive product showcase, 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 celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table in their dedicated theatre and several related networking events. The PerkinElmer-sponsored “Insights and Innovations” curated by Laboratory News, will focus on lab management and digitisation, with topics including the use of artificial intelligence in science, virtual reality in the lab, handling big data in the digital age and more. Speakers will help scientists identify laboratory practices or workflows that could be improved, and present technologies which can enable them to do this.
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 dedicated exhibitor pavilion, networking lounge and 2-days of educational content. Seminars will focus on regulation and legislation, and how to ensure sterilisation in environments where contamination needs to be controlled.
In the adjacent “Lab News Village”, first-time exhibitors will showcase products never seen before at Lab Innovations. Additionally, the SLS pavilion is a third larger, showcasing 20 partners of the UK’s largest independent supplier of laboratory equipment, chemicals and consumables.
With sustainability high on the UK agenda, the ‘Sustainable Laboratory’ will return for 2019, providing opportunities for attendees to view ‘green’ equipment and speak with leading UK universities on how they are using it 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 accentuates the event’s position as the leading meeting place for laboratory professionals and suppliers.
