Lab Innovations, the UK’s largest trade exhibition for the laboratory industry, will bring together the industry’s leading professionals, scientists, researchers and more to drive innovation and sustainability. This year’s show, taking place on November 2 and 3 2022, at the NEC, Birmingham, is the tenth Lab Innovations show and will feature special celebrations, providing visitors with extra networking opportunities. You can register now and secure your tickets for the show on the Lab Innovations website.
Last year, Lab Innovations brought together the entire lab community for the first time in almost two years and this year’s event will build on that success, providing an opportunity for the entire industry to come together to do face-to-face business once again. There are already many exhibitors confirmed for the event, such as Avantor, Beckman Coulter, Cole-Palmer, IKA, Randox, Shimadzu and Scientific Laboratory Supplies, to name a few.
At Lab Innovations 2022, visitors can discover the latest innovations, source a range of products and gain insight into data-driven case studies, such as those from Green Light Laboratories, demonstrating the impact of sustainable initiatives in laboratory environments.
“Lab Innovations is a great opportunity for end users to see how our equipment works in a real laboratory environment and how the data we’ve collected can be replicated in their own labs to help them to be more sustainable,” explained Andy Evans, director at Green Light Labs and host of Lab Innovations’ Sustainable Laboratory.
This year’s Sustainable Laboratory will be bigger than ever, showcasing equipment and processes used to reduce a lab’s sustainability and efficiency. With a focus on carbon and carbon equivalent emissions, visitors can learn from case studies and audits from a series of leading UK labs.
Attendees at the show can take advantage of over 40 hours of CPD educations and earn CPD points from four free-to-attend theatre programmes – the Royal Society of Chemistry Theatre, the Insights & Innovation Theatre, the Cleanroom Hub and Live Lab. My Green Lab is sponsoring the Insights and Innovations theatre at this year’s show, which will have a theme of Skills and Sustainability.
Across the programmes at last year’s show, visitors could attend keynote talks by Timandra Harkness, science writer, broadcaster and comedian, and Mark Miodownik, professor of materials and society and director of institute of making at University College London. And, with the announcement of this year’s keynote speakers coming in the next few days, Lab Innovations 2022 is sure to be even more exciting.
Last year’s event was particularly special as it marked a successful return for Lab Innovations after the pandemic caused the 2020 show to be postponed. One visitor, Andy Worsick, sales executive at EMS Solutions, commented during last year’s show, “Exhibitions have been at the forefront of getting out and seeing the right people for your business, and Lab Innovations is one of the best I’ve seen. It’s been an excellent event and I’m glad to be back!”
Lab Innovations 2022 will also feature the Lab Awards event, brought to you on the afternoon of November 2 by Lab Innovations, in partnership with Laboratory News. It will celebrate the key achievements of the laboratory industry, with awards covering Innovation, Sustainability, Collaboration and Inclusion, there are opportunities or entrants to demonstrate their achievements across multiple areas. With the leading people and brands in the industry set to attend, Lab Awards is an event not to be missed.
Alana Thompson, website and marketing manager at Anthias Consulting, one of last year’s winners, commented, “We won two Lab Awards at last year’s event, so being recognised among the bigger names in the industry feels like a big achievement.”
Once again, the show will be co-located with Advanced Engineering, which is supported by key industry associations such as ADS, the SMMT, The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Composites UK, Make UK and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. This helps to promote cross-sector collaboration and continued innovation by the UK’s leading laboratory and engineering industries.
“As this is the ten year anniversary of Lab Innovations, we are really excited to show you what we have in store for this year,” explained Alison Willis, Director at Easyfairs, the organiser of Lab Innovations. “As we get closer to the show, you can expect to see regular updates regarding the Lab Awards, special guests and other exciting features on our website. Whether you are looking to update your lab equipment or want to learn about the latest innovations in the lab industry, Lab Innovations is an event you can’t miss.”
Lab Innovations 2022 is set to be the best show yet as it celebrates it tenth anniversary and it certainly isn’t an event to be missed for anyone in the laboratory community. Register to attend Lab Innovations 2022 on November 2 and 3 on the Lab Innovations website.
