Analytical Sciences Trade Fair Declared a Rousing Success

By BiotechDaily International staff writers
Posted on 13 Apr 2014
Organizers of this year's 24th "analytica" biosciences trade fair have reported significant increases in both the number of visitors and exhibitors compared to the 2012 event.

The analytica trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis, and biotechnology has been held at the Munich (Germany) Trade Fair Center every two years since 1968. Its main exhibition sectors are the fields of analysis and quality control, biotechnology/life sciences/diagnostics, and laboratory technology.

Complementing the trade fair is the associated analytica Conference, which focuses on current and future industry topics. This international conference informs participants about the current state of analysis and its development prospects. Topics include basic and application-oriented research and development of analysis techniques in chemistry, diagnostics, molecular biology, and biochemistry.

Statistics from 2014's four-day analytica revealed that the event attracted more than 34,400 visitors (up 12.8%) with a record number of exhibitors (1,142 companies —about 11% more than in 2012). In addition to attendees from Germany, visitors to the fair came from all over the world with the largest number being from Austria, Switzerland, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, and China. Exhibitors represented companies from 40 countries including Germany, the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Switzerland, and France. The international exhibitors accounted for more than 39% of the exhibits, an increase of nearly 5% from the previous analytica. The increase was primarily the result of growth in the sectors for biotechnology and laboratory technology.

Dr. Wolfram Koch, managing director of the German Chemical Society and a member of the team that organizes the analytica Conference, said, "Right now, the analytica Conference is certainly one of the most important conferences in the context of analytical sciences—and not just in the German-speaking region, but also in Europe and increasingly at the global level. Among other things, that is noticeable by the fact that the number of participants from non-European countries continues to increase."

The next analytica will be held May 10–13, 2016.
