Asia’s leading trade show for analysis, lab technology and biotechnology, analytica China, will open again at Hall E1 to E4, Shanghai New International Expo Center from October 31 to November 2, 2018. The exhibition is a spin-off of analytica in Germany—the leading international fair for laboratory technology, analysis and biotechnology. analytica China is the leading barometer for the analysis industry in China and the Asian-Pacific Region.
Four Halls, Five Areas: Bigger size, New Layout
In 2018, the exhibition will expand again and grow from 3 halls to 4 halls with a total area of 46,000 square meters. The exhibitor number is expected to reach 1,000, unprecedented in the history of the exhibition.
The five segments of analytica China 2018 are now decided: apart from the original areas — Life Sciences, Biotechnology and Diagnosis; Analysis and Quality Control; Lab Equipment and Technology; Food Safety Equipment and Technology — a new area, Environmental Monitor Equipment and Technology is added. The new areas will include analysis and monitoring products and technology for environmental monitoring. Together with relevant supporting programs, the new show segments will exhibit the new products, technology, applications and trends in the industry and support the development of the environmental monitoring industry in China.
Market development boosts exhibition segments
As two of the most important areas at analytica China, Life Sciences, biotechnology and diagnostics as well as analysis and quality control have always been the focus of brands and users. China adopted a plan to build a healthy China in the next 15 years. The government has been raising people's living standards, but new challenges to a healthy society, such as the aging population and environmental pollution, have also emerged. It stresses that health should be combined into all major policies, such as fighting environment pollution and improving the nation's healthcare provision.
Exhibits at analytica China 2018 cover all important areas in lab applications, including general analysis instruments and peripheral equipment, environmental and food analysis equipment, test and measurement, quality control, life sciences, medical treatment and diagnosis, reagents and consumables, general lab equipment, and information services. The main target groups as visitors are from industries such as biochemistry and pharmacy, chemical engineering, education and research, food safety, environmental monitoring, industrial manufacturing, medical and health, and inspection & quarantine.
