Innovation Trail

Lab Innovations has been very interesting for me, it’s a very lively and engaging show and it’s great to see so many innovations and the laboratory trends, such as digital connectivity. There’s so much valuable information and vendors to see in one place that it’s taken two of us both days to cover it all! The opportunity to meet both large and smaller innovators and talk to a lot of people in person so that I can discuss and ask direct questions is also really valuable. I particularly enjoyed the focus on sustainability which is very relevant to my company. I would love to come again and will definitely be passing on a lot of information now and recommending it to my colleagues for next year.

Ruth Wilson, Researcher, Proctor & Gamble

This is a fantastic show which has proved to be a very worthwhile visit for me - it’s been great to see loads of new technologies and products in order to take lots of information back to my team. I’ve found many products that would be beneficial to use in our own laboratories that would be beneficial to use within our own laboratories to support efficiency savings – including time, costs and also energy.

Ralph Munonyedi, Microbiologist, Mondelez International

This is the first time I have attended Lab Innovations and I have ended up coming both days due to the amount of connections we were making. Besides networking, Lab Innovations has given me the opportunity to keep up to date as the entire market is here. I will definitely come again.

Phil Ellis, Equipment Services Manager, Aber Innovations

The show has been very innovative, a massively good way of networking and we will definitely be coming again.
