EuroLab and CrimeLab at the Palace of Culture and Science
21st International Trade Fair of Analytics and Measurement Technology EuroLab and 8th Criminological Technology Fair CrimeLab will be held in March next year at the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw. The event was scheduled from 13 to 15 March. The return of the fair to the centre of Warsaw was well received by the Exhibitors, for whom it is a perfect opportunity for better promotion of their products among a greater number of visitors. As usual, the fairs will be accompanied by numerous seminars, lectures, conferences, workshops and business meetings. Also, traditional competitions aimed at selecting the best of the best will be organized. At these fairs, science meets business for the benefit of both parties, and the combination of theory and practice generates new opportunities for development and growth. High quality of the event is ensured by cooperation with key scientific, research and certification centres.
Event for professionals
This is the most important event of its kind in the year for lab specialists and experts; that is why more than 6,000 of them took part in the previous edition of the event. They had the opportunity to get acquainted with technological and product novelties and obtain valuable information on how to design, furnish or modernize the laboratory. 172 exhibitors from 19 countries presented the state-of-the art solutions and products necessary for complex furnishing of various types of laboratories, such as: control and measurement equipment, analytical apparatus, accessories, as well as furniture and other elements of equipment. Also, a wide range of chemicals used in laboratories, reagents and tests as well as professional cleaning products, protective clothing and software for laboratories was presented. Next year’s edition of the event seems to be even more promising.
Honorary patronage over the fairs was assumed by: Jarosław Gowin – the Minister of Science and Higher Education; Bogdan Święczkowski – the First Deputy to the General Prosecutor and the State Prosecutor; Piotr Cieśliński – MP of the Republic of Poland, the Chairman of the Parliamentary Team for Chemical Industry; Prof Jerzy Duszyński – President of the Polish Academy of Sciences; Maciej Dobieszewski – acting President of the Central Office of Measures.
