LABVOLUTION 2019, 21 - 23 May


New meets old as two become one. Last year saw the first-ever joint staging of the new LABVOLUTION and the tried and proven BIOTECHNICA trade shows. It was a big success, and now the two shows are being positioned as a leading trade fair for the entire laboratory landscape, bringing together everything from lab technology and life sciences to the chemicals industry.



Combining these two trade shows is more than merely the logical next step in their evolution; it creates real added value for visitors. On the one hand there's the new LABVOLUTION, with its displays of laboratory technology for a whole range of user industries and its visionary smartLAB special display. And on the other there’s BIOTECHNICA, with its proud 30-year history as Europe's leading event for research, life sciences and biotechnology.

With LABVOLUTION, the combined event presents all the latest innovative laboratory products and current best practice as well as tracing laboratory technology holistically across multiple industry value chains. And thanks to BIOTECHNICA, the fair is very strong on research. BIOTECHNICA is where the science and R&D communities and biotech companies present current research findings and applications from fields as diverse as personalized medicine, industrial biotechnology and diagnostics.

LABVOLUTION with BIOTECHNICA is a fully integrated event that provides a multidisciplinary perspective on all aspects of the laboratory world. Thanks to this breadth of coverage and to audience-grabbing highlights such as the smartLAB special display, it is Northern Europe's leading business platform for analytics, laboratory technology and biotechnology.

New: 2017 LABVOLUTION with BIOTECHNICA in Hall 9/20

Hall 19/20
Hall 19/20

LABVOLUTION/BIOTECHNICA has a new venue to match its new format: Hall 19/20. Located in the northern part of the Hannover Exhibition Center, Hall 19/20 is modern, fresh and open venue with excellent natural lighting. Even better, it's sited immediately adjacent to the final stop on tram line 8, so it's only 18 minutes way from Hannover's central railway station. Participants arriving by car will find parking buildings close by. And with plenty of conference rooms to match its exhibition space, Hall 19/20 is the ideal single-venue solution for closely integrated exhibition/conference events.
