The UK’s largest trade show for the entire laboratory industry, Lab Innovations, returned to the NEC, Birmingham, earlier this month to champion sustainability and innovation in the lab industry. This year’s show saw record-breaking numbers across the board, with more exhibitors, speakers and visitors than ever at Lab Innovations 2023. 4,362 visitors attended the show across two days to network and do business with 202 exhibitors, 80% per cent of which have already rebooked for next year. Visitors rated this year’s show the best Lab Innovations yet, with an NPS of +46.93, which demonstrates the outstanding visitor experience on offer. With next year’s exhibitor list already looking strong, Lab Innovations 2024 will be another must-attend event for the whole lab sector.

202 exhibitors descended on Birmingham on November 1 and 2 for Lab Innovations 2023, with 80% per cent rebooking for 2024’s event already. Exhibitors at this year’s event included Alpha Laboratories, Analytix, Avantor VWR, CEM Microwave Technology, Cole-Parmer, IKA, Integra Biosciences, Merck, Monmouth Scientific, PerkinElmer, Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS), SciMed, Shimadzu and Verulam Scientific, to name a few. Once again, the show was co-located with the UK’s largest annual gathering of engineering and manufacturing professionals, Advanced Engineering, which facilitated cross-sector collaboration between over 13,000 of the UK’s most innovative STEM professionals.

Simon Farnfield, event director for Lab Innovations, explained during the show, “Lab Innovations is the home of the whole lab community, providing a crucial opportunity for the industry’s leading businesses and professionals to get together, network and do business. 2023’s show has seen record numbers, both in terms of exhibitors and visitors, which has cemented Lab Innovations’ reputation as the home of the entire lab community and the place to be to see the latest innovations and sustainability solutions. We can’t wait to do it all again in 2024.”
