Lab Innovations 2019 opening next week to record number of exhibitors

Lab Innovations, the UK’s only trade show dedicated to the laboratory industry, will be opening its doors next week to a record number of visitors and exhibitors.

With all exhibition space sold out at this award-winning laboratory exhibition showcase, visitors will have access to a huge range of the latest instruments and technologies, as well as learning about future-proofing and sustainable procurement of lab products.

Supported by some of the UK’s top science institutions, it is now established as a key annual event for powering the business of science.

Visitor registrations cover a variety of industry sectors and organisations including the NHS and MoD, P&G, Unilever, Nestle, Pepsico, Müller, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, as well as academic institutions including the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.

Registrants are already taking full advantage of the extensive networking opportunities offered by the show’s new Lab Connect business meeting planning tool sponsored by PerkinElmer.

This new online business matchmaking service is enabling them to build connections and manage their time efficiently at the show by pre-arranging meetings with peers and exhibitors alike.

In total there will be 160+ suppliers and manufacturers presenting cutting-edge lab equipment applicable to industries including life sciences, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, materials science and food and drink.

As well as sourcing innovative new technologies and networking with peers, visitors can also make the most out of the show by earning CPD points in the free-to-attend conference programmes.

This year sustainability, digitisation and efficiency are high on the agenda with up to 35 hours of CPD-accredited content across four different theatres: The Royal Society of Chemistry theatre; Insights and Innovations theatre; Cleanroom Hub; and Live Lab. All will host expert speakers highlighting novel techniques, tools, trends and hot topics in the laboratory environment.

Sustainable lab initiatives are a key focus of the show and the Sustainable Laboratory zone enables visitors to discover environmentally-friendly products and sustainable initiatives in the lab. Organiser Andy Evans of Green Light Laboratories will host tours on his stand on both days, and will also be speaking in the Insights and Innovation Theatre.

Additionally, Martin Farley in the Live Lab will discuss how UCL Sustainability has developed a new tool to help researchers, staff and students, improve the sustainability and efficiency of their laboratories. In addition to highlighting sustainable products, high precision thermoregulation specialists, Huber, are even using recycled laboratory frameworks to build the centrepiece for their stand.

“Lab Innovations is really all about celebrating the business of science,” said Lab Innovations Divisional Director, Alison Willis.

“We have a fantastic show lined up again this year with leading suppliers, unmissable content, new interactive show features and the opportunity to network with peers in the laboratory industry.”

The event takes place at Birmingham NEC on 30 and 31 October.
