A new European trade fair and conference, L.A.B, devoted to analysis, bio and laboratory equipment will take place in London between 2 to 4 October 2007.

The conference organisers, Leipzig Fair, are expecting around 100 exhibitors to fill the 4000m2 of the ExCel International Conference and Exhibition centre. They are predicting 3,000 visitors will attend the event, from the pharmaceutical, chemical, medical, and food and drink industries.

The conference will serve a large market, with sales of laboratory, analysis and quality control equipment amounting to €15 billion in Europe in 2005. L.A.B is supported by GAMBICA, the UK Association for Instrumentation, Control, Automation and Laboratory Technology, and SPECTARIS, the German Association for Optical, Medical and Mechatronic Technologies.
