Ralf Claussen, Director Communication & Advertising, Eppendorf AG:
"The atmosphere was truly electric. LABVOLUTION has what it takes to become the Northern European lab community's networking hub."
Dr. Stefan Sadtler, Director of Marketing Life Science, Sarstedt:
"In our opinion, Deutsche Messe has succeeded in its relaunch of LABVOLUTION. The new format was embraced by the market, and the hall was brimming with visitors. LABVOLUTION is the ideal place for us to reach our customers in Northern Europe."
Thorsten Wagner, Marketing Director, Carl Roth GmbH:
"This is the first time that Carl Roth has exhibited at LABVOLUTION, and, what's more, we had our own separate stand. The bottom line: satisfied customers and happy employees. For us, LABVOLUTION was a success."
Dr. Simon Bungers, CEO labfolder and spokesperson for the smartLAB Group:
"smartLAB 2017 went off really well. It was fantastic that we had a 'full house' at our stand, right from our very first use-case presentation. Many came to the show expressly for the purpose of seeing smartLAB. Overall, smartLAB represents an evolutionary milestone on the road to the digitalized lab. The 2017 showcase demonstrated just how far along that road we have already come. Even I was somewhat astonished to see how far we've come, although there is still plenty of work to be done, of course."
Frauke Persson, Sales Manager Central Europe North, Sartorius:
"We were pleasantly surprised by the volume of customer contacts we had, including with customers from Berlin and all over Germany. Going forward, we would like to see a continuation and expansion of LABVOLUTION’s multi-track format with its parallel training sessions and workshops."
Eike Kottkamp, CEO, InnoME GmbH:
"The show exceeded our expectations by far. We've had negative experiences at other shows before. But here, our stand generated a lot of quality contacts with prospective customers."
Martin Woywood, R&D and Sales Engineer, InnoME GmbH:
"We are highly satisfied with LABVOLUTION. The turnout by potential customers and users from various lab backgrounds was excellent. The 'Young, Innovative Enterprises' pavilion was a great idea. We'll definitely be back."
Dr. Holger Morschett, Head of the "MiBioLab" project at the Forschungszentrum Jülich research institute:
"We are a niche provider, so connecting with the right visitors at trade shows is always 'luck of draw'. What really struck us about LABVOLUTION is that, although the visitors come from very diverse backgrounds, they mostly have a very good understanding of lab technology."
Matthias Ludwig, Life Science Applications Specialist at Analytik Jena:
"We are very satisfied. Our stand was very busy the whole time. The visitors are very different and of better quality than in previous years. They have concrete projects in mind and tend to come to us with specific applications-related questions."
Dr. Andrea Wetzel, Ass. Head of Central Office, Fraunhofer Group for Life Sciences:
"For Fraunhofer Group for Life Sciences employees, LABVOLUTION is a good opportunity to get together with fellow exhibitors to discuss matters of common interest and initiate joint projects. The visitor mix is more diverse than in the past, and we fielded a higher number of queries that were specific to our area of technology. And, of course, we also get questions from students about internships and masters thesis projects."
Sophia Schönhals, Sales Manager Northern/Eastern Germany, Malvern Instruments:
"LABVOLUTION is now attracting a very different mix of visitors, which is great for Malvern."
Andreas Weninger, Business Area Manager Process Lab, Mettler-Toledo GmbH:
"LABVOLUTION has succeeded in achieving a turnaround and now needs to set its sights on growth. This year, we encountered a lot more professionals from the pharmaceuticals and chemicals industries."
Michael Bogdahn, Head of Field Sales, Merck Group:
"The realignment of LABVOLUTION is an absolute success and was urgently needed. It was a risk, but it has paid off, and so we would like to thank Deutsche Messe for stepping up. We are very pleased with how the show went and are planning to return next time."
