analytica Anacon India changes location

The venue for analytica Anacon India will change this year, from Hyderabad to Mumbai.

The venue for analytica Anacon India will change this year, from Hyderabad to Mumbai. In doing so, it will return to its original location after a period of seven years. The fair will be accompanied by the 2011 analytica Anacon India conference, the theme of which is "Analytical Technologies — Innovations driving the growth momentum".

"Mumbai is one of India's most important economic centres”, said Susanne Grödl, exhibition director for analytica at Messe München. "The Indian metropolis is home to a large number of primary consumers in the chemicals industry, the drug industry and the fertilizer industry, which makes it particularly attractive, especially for exhibitors that manufacture analysis and laboratory equipment. Generally speaking, the analysis industry plays an important role in the state of Maharashtra: due to India's large population, the region has a strong position in food manufacturing and textile production. High-quality analysis equipment for reliable quality control is particularly high in these sectors.”

Alongside the trade fair, the Indian Analytical Instruments Association (IAIA) will host the analytica Anacon conference; this year's theme is "Analytical Technologies — Innovations driving the growth momentum". Among other things, the conference will focus on the technical advantages of equipment used in life sciences, food safety and pharmaceuticals sectors.

Several international companies including Agilent, Dionex, Millipore, Shimadzu and Thermo have announced that they will participate in this year's fair which will run from 12–14 October.
