LABVOLUTION is Deutsche Messe’s new trade show for laboratory technology. And it’s sure to get off to a fantastic start next year thanks to a winning partnership with an established showcase: European Lab Automation. ELA is Europe’s leading conference and exhibition for laboratory automation, and in October 2015 it will be staged as part of the inaugural LABVOLUTION. The perfect complement to ELA’s life sciences automation focus, LABVOLUTION is aimed at Northern European users of lab technology from the following industries: chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, plastics, new materials and materials testing, cosmetics, medical technology, environmental technology and food. It will be co-located with BIOTECHNICA, Europe’s number one event for biotechnology and the life sciences.

“The pairing of ELA and LABVOLUTION is a perfect symbiosis,” says Deutsche Messe’s LABVOLUTION director, Jürgen Fürstenberg-Brock. “Laboratory automation is an extremely engaging and topical subject area for a trade show. Our partnership with this high-end conference and exhibition will enable us to focus both on automation technology and its applications, and this will deliver major benefits to exhibitors and visitors alike.”

ELA is an annual exhibition and conference showcase organized by the UK-based firm SELECTBIO (Select Biosciences Ltd). Since its launch in 2011, ELA has been held three times in Hamburg and once – just recently, in May of this year – in Barcelona. Next year, it will be held at the Hannover Exhibition Center, (in Hannover, Germany), as part of LABVOLUTION. The exhibition component of ELA will run on all three LABVOLUTION show days – 6 to 8 October – in Hall 9, while the conference component will be held right next door in the Convention Center complex on 7 and 8 October. ELA will also feature three conferences, the topics covered by each being: innovations in lab automation and robotics; personalized medicine and its ramifications for hospitals; genome engineering.

LABVOLUTION is an international platform for industry, research and science. It is intended both as an incubator of new business leads and contacts and as a forum for informed discussion on current and future trends and themes in laboratory technology. As such, it will profile innovations in laboratory technology holistically across multiple industry value chains. LABVOLUTION will energy major synergies and crossover visitor potential with ELA, and the same applies for the co-located BIOTECHNICA show, with its overlapping coverage of related themes such as personalized medicine technology and the bioeconomy.


LABVOLUTION will premiere from 6 to 8 October 2015 at the Hannover Exhibition Center – the same time slot and venue as the long-established BIOTECNICA trade fair. Up until now, the BIOTECHNICA exhibition program has included a section on lab technology for biotechnology and life sciences. As of next year, this section will be spun off into LABVOLUTION, where it will be supplemented with additional lab tech content for the chemicals, pharmaceuticals, plastics, new-materials, materials-testing, cosmetics, medical technology, environmental technology and food industries. Visitors from these industries will encounter a wide range of products and solutions, including laboratory infrastructure, analytics, applications and processes, chemicals, reagents, supplies and consumables and specialist services. BIOTECHICA is Europe’s leading showcase and dialogue hub for biotechnology and life sciences. It spans the entire biotechnology value chain, from basic research to fully developed products. Visitors will be able to gain admission to both fairs on the one ticket.
