Upcoming Events

Arablab 2011

In 2011 Dubai will again play host to Arablab, the international laboratory and instrumentation show. Arablab will be held at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre from 7–10 March 2011.

It is reported that the annual gathering of the analytical industry is once again demonstrating the sector's amazing growth, not only in the Middle East, but also globally. Now in its 28th year, Arablab has grown from just 40 exhibitors to over 700 of the industry's leading companies from around the globe.

Arablab focuses on laboratory technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, environmental sciences, robotics and automation, analytical instrumentation and measurement and testing. The show is reported to attract some 10000 visitors from more than 75 countries, and covers all of the important growth markets of the Middle East, China, the Indian sub-continent, South-east Asia and Africa.

Arablab is not only a showcase that draws buyers, specifiers, end-users and distributors from all six continents; the event also provides a forum for industry leaders involved in medical, petroleum and environmental research and analysis, laboratory automation and data process management. All the industry's foremost companies will be exhibiting — and, at the 2011 show, more national groups than ever before will be participating.

According to the organizers of the event, the show has enjoyed consistent annual growth in recent years, and the exhibitor attendance for 2011 has increased by more than 20%, including many companies and national groups who are exhibiting for the first time.

Complementing the exhibition itself is the packed seminar programme — MediLab, BioLab, EnviroLab and PetroLab — which offers opportunities to gain information about all the very latest developments in these fields.

The latest information about the show is available online at www.arablab.com

Pittcon 2011

Pittcon — the annual Conference and Exposition on laboratory science — includes a wide-array of symposia, short courses, poster sessions, networking opportunities and, of course, an exhibition featuring leading analytical and chromatography suppliers. Pittcon 2011 will be held from 13–18 March 2011 in Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

For those seeking to develop new skills or learn more about chromatographic techniques, an attractive feature of Pittcon is the informative short courses. There are about 61 short courses associated with liquid chromatography and gas chromatography. Several of these short courses are new to Pittcon this year and include topics such as LC–MS Strategies for the Identification of Impurities, Degradants and Metabolites; LC/MS: Method Development and Applications to Small Molecules; and New Concepts of TOF-MS for Fast GC and GC×GC Applications. Pittcon short courses are offered from 12–18 March.

The Conference itself includes 53 invited symposia which showcase nationally and internationally recognized scientists. As well as the invited symposia, there are an additional 200 papers that are related to chromatography in the organized contributed, and poster sessions and workshops.

Pittcon attracts nearly 20000 attendees from industry, academia and government from 90 countries worldwide. Each year thousands of scientists take advantage of the opportunity to see the latest in instrumentation all on one exhibition floor. At this year's Exposition, 1000 exhibiting companies, including leaders in chromatography instrumentation and accessories, are expected to attend.
