Deadline looms for seats at biggest-ever Lab Awards
5 Oct 2023
Time is running out for securing tickets to this year’s Lab Awards, in what will be the largest scale version of the ceremony that has yet been staged.
With 14 categories, 13 of which have multiple contenders including many of the best known brands and leading lab science innovators, the 2023 awards will dwarf every previous year.
Staged as part of the two day Lab Innovations Show at the NEC in Birmingham, for the first time the event will not be held during the exhibition period of the day but instead will have its own formal evening ceremony on 1 November at the NEC’s Vox site.
A spokesman for the awards, which are jointly organised by Lab Innovations and Laboratory News, commented:
“For a relatively new event, the Lab Awards has grown impressively year on year, drawing in an ever larger number of nominations. But that means interest in tickets is also likely to be intense, and with so many people attending the Lab innovations Show, we’d urge anyone seeking to be at the ceremony in order to support their friends and colleagues to act fast and book your tickets now.
“It’s a chance to connect with some of the biggest names in lab science but it’s also an opportunity to get to know some of the newest and most innovative talents, who could be key people in the future of our industry.”
The 14 award categories incorporate themes of sustainability, innovation, smart technology, training and talent. View who is in the running in 13 of the categories here. The only award without a shortlist is Outstanding Achievement, whose winner is announced at the ceremony.
The Lab Awards 2023 also feature presenter and broadcaster Maggie Philbin, together with Kiss FM DJ Justin Wilkes.
The judging panel is led by Chairman and Laboratory News publisher, Synthesis Media chief Sean Marshall. The other judges are: Gambica’s Laboratory Technology Sector Director Jacqueline Balian, Aston University Head of Technical Services Jiteen Ahmed, Innovation DB Chief Executive Gerald Law and Errant Science founder and Laboratory News columnist Dr Matthew Partridge.
