Analytica Anacon India and India Lab Expo 2016, leading trade fairs for laboratory technology, analysis, biotechnology and diagnostics, was recently held at HITEX Exhibition Center, Hyderabad. The event welcomed 254 exhibitors from 11 countries and gathered 7,042 trade visitors in three days.
On 9,500 square metres of exhibition space, the event brought together internationally renowned manufacturers, laboratory users, consultants and key government officials on one common platform to discuss best practices and seek solutions to some of the most pressing challenges related to the industry and research.
The trade fairs staged a Live Lab, where visitors had visual experience of lab demonstrations. Exhibitors performed live experiments for the visitors by displaying and running instruments from the pharma analysis area.
Burkhard Baier, Chief Representative, Sympa Tec says, “Our expectation is clearly defined that we get an opportunity to network with the pharmaceutical companies in Hyderabad, which is considered the hub for the pharma sector. Apart from being an exhibitor, we also had the opportunity to showcase our products, working live at the Live Lab pharma analysis which was a first for us. Personally, my experience was very good.”
Key buyers engaged in close to 750 face to face meetings as part of the buyer seller programme running alongside the trade fairs. Exhibitors and decision makers directly networked and interacted with clients and other industry delegates from international and domestic market and discussed about new equipment, technologies and solutions.
Analytica Anacon India conference was another highlight of the event. Under the title ‘Science meets Technology’, the conference focused on ‘Regulatory Aspects of Pharmaceutical Laboratories’, ‘Biopharmaceuticals and Bioanalysis’, ‘Food Safety’ and ‘Clinical Diagnosis’. The theoretical sessions were rounded out by tutorials where practical application tips were passed on the audience. Eminent speakers, scientists, industry representatives and more than 320 delegates were engaged in knowledge-share and exchange of expertise. The analytica Anacon India conference was co-organised by Messe München India and the Indian Analytical Instruments Association (IAIA) and chaired by Nitin Kabbin from Indian Analytical Instruments Association (IAIA) and Oliver J Schmitz from the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany.
Sharing his experience at the buyer Seller Forum, Dr Swapnil P Sonawane, Associate Director, Dr Reddy’s Laboratories says, “This is the second time that we are attending analytica Anacon India and India Lab Expo. Last time we met with a number of domestic players but this time we explored new technologies that are coming into the Indian market place. In the buyer seller forum, we have been able to interact with several industry players in a short span of time and especially with global companies from the sector. Our experience at the buyer-seller meet is invaluable and we are eagerly looking forward to many more.”
