10 Jul 2023
Lab Innovations has officially opened visitor registration for its upcoming event on November 1 and 2, 2023.
Held at the NEC in Birmingham, organisers are hoping this year's show will be the largest to date, with the floorplan substantially expanded beyond the capacity of last year’s show, which boasted record-breaking attendance.
A notable addition to this year's show is the introduction of the Smartlab, a dedicated area focusing on robotics, automation, AI, machine learning, and smart lab technologies. The Smartlab will feature a content stream in the conference theatres, along with a start-up innovation zone showcasing the latest tech from new companies.
The 2023 event will also present the Ask the Experts area for the first time, enabling visitors to receive one-on-one advice from leading manufacturers on optimising their equipment's utility. Lab Innovations is home to four free-to-attend theatre programs: the Royal Society of Chemistry Theatre, Insights & Innovation Theatre, Cleanroom Hub, and Live Lab.
Due to its success in 2022, the Live Lab Theatre, which hosts live technical demonstrations, has doubled in size, providing more opportunities for attendees to witness the latest innovations firstnhand and try out equipment.
The event will include industry leaders as guest speakers with a comprehensive range of free talks curated by amongst others Laboratory News, extensive networking opportunities and a large range of exhibitors.
In 2022, Lab Innovations featured 192 exhibitors, including renowned companies such as SLS, SciMed, IKA, Shimadzu, Analytix, Getinge, PerkinElmer, Antylia Scientific (formerly Cole-Parmer), and Veolia Water Technologies. With an exceptional rebooking rate from last year's event, the number of exhibitors is expected to increase further, providing visitors with an unprecedented opportunity to connect with a wide range of companies.
Lab Innovations 2022 saw a 35% increase in attendance, with 4,213 attendees, Last year's keynotes featured renowned speakers including University of Liverpool nanomedicine expert Professor Steven Rannard and The Economist science correspondent Alok Jha, talking on the theme of water chemistry.
