PITTCON 2019 Highlights – New twists refresh Pittcon
PITTCON celebrated its 70th year this year making it one of the oldest laboratory shows and still one of the largest US exhibitions we attend. The 2019 format, held at the Philadelphia Convention Center, was similar to last year with a five-day technical program and a three-day exhibition. Many US Labs, large and small, find PITTCON a great place to research LIMS. They are able to compare the main vendors in-depth over the course of the three days and get to understand them enough to make some initial choices and guide their future decisions over user requirements. Unlike in previous years there was no “Informatics” section, so those doing the research had to search out the LIMS vendors from the exhibitors.
