VNU Asia Pacific, the organiser of Thailand Lab International, together with the Science and Technology Trade Association (STTA) and the Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences (TCELS), are thrilled to celebrate its 10th Anniversary from October 28-30, 2020 at BITEC as a ‘New Normal in LAB Exhibition’ Thailand Lab International strives to be one of Southeast Asia’s leading exhibitions and conferences on analytical laboratory technologies, life sciences, and biotechnology innovations. As ever, the latest technology and equipment used in laboratories by top brands around the world. The event also responds to the rising need for knowledge exchange on the latest innovations for COVID-19 detection and ramping up of lab infrastructures to accommodate increases in clinical testing, biotech developments, and vaccine discoveries.
For the first time, Thailand Lab International will launch a “Hybrid Edition”, combining a live portion and online platform, to improve the accessibility of the trade fair for participants across the globe. The show will expand its capabilities by creating more business matching opportunities and access to conferences through a user-friendly online platform. Furthermore, the Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences, or TCELS, will be the main co-host for “Bio Asia Pacific 2020: Virtual & Live”, a virtual conference on “Preparedness & Readiness for the Next Pandemic” for this year. It will broadcast through an online platform and live at Thailand Lab International. There will be an open centre stage at the exhibition hall called "Bio Square," where the Opening Ceremony, leadership sessions, networking functions, start-up pitching, fireside chats, and lucky drawings will be conducted to deliver a holistic experience for all trade participants. Additionally, this key event will facilitate all key buyers through the ‘Business Matching Services’ and foster a forum of new business ideas for future investment through the ‘Business Pitching Session’
Mr. Anucha Parnpichate, Project Manager of Thailand Lab International says, “The COVID-19 outbreak spread since December 2019 has affected all businesses around the world. We believe that organising Thailand Lab International this year will be the right time to share solutions on innovative technologies to achieve accurate lab results and to maintain laboratory safety. The show will provide an avenue to gather lab professionals, researchers, manufacturers, the academic community and various government representatives to share their knowledge on the production of a human vaccine and better management of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases in the future.”
“For the ten years that we have organised Thailand Lab International, we have successfully stimulated the growth of the analytical laboratory market in Asia. Facilitating the showcase of the latest lab technologies, we believe that we can contribute to the well-being of society. Through the conferences and knowledge seminars organised by associations, government institutions and universities at the show, we can equip trade participants with the latest knowledge on life sciences and healthcare, with a focus on the global efforts towards detecting and combating COVID-19. Among the confirmed government and association partners are The Association of Medical Technologists of Thailand (AMTT), National Food Institute (NFI), Thailand Institute of Scientific and Technological Research (TISTR), Biotech Industry Club under the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) among others. A plethora of knowledge exchange, business matching opportunities and exciting activities await visitors at Thailand Lab International 2020. It is a show you do not want to miss this year!” said Mr. Anucha Parnpichate.
