The 26th-28th November marked the final trade exhibition of the year for Datesand with the Annual LASA winter conference in Birmingham. Nicky, Ryan, Nilgun and Jonathon all spent time at the stand that once again offered a fantastic display and insight into what Datesand has to offer.
Though a quieter than usual conference with the impending AST conference in March ahead of us, there was still plenty to see and do and there was a great atmosphere from day one. We were happy to welcome some new faces and get to know a host of new people within the industry, but as ever it was great to see old friends!
As usual, there was a fantastic gala dinner hosted for all attendees. This was yet another great opportunity to socialise with friends, colleagues and competitors alike with drinks, food and dancing all round.
It was fantastic to end the year on such a high. We’ve had the absolute pleasure of attending so many amazing events this year with so much more to come in 2020! Nicky even managed to squeeze in one more just a week before LASA over in Arnhem, Netherlands.
Biotechnische Dagen saw around 40 traders this year, including one of our distributors, Bio-Services, who Nicky had gone to support. As well as having two days of workshops, posters and papers on offer, Nicky was also given the chance to hold four mini-presentations about the Janet Wood Innovation Award.
