Future Labs Live will bring together old and new, traditional and innovative. The world’s largest and most established manufacturing, life science and agri-chem labs will meet the smallest start-ups in a format designed to spark ideas and foster new relationships. Our aim is to be more expansive in our thinking and more multi-disciplinary in our approach than any other event in the sector.

With 200 lab innovators delivering a two-day cross sector agenda, topics will explore the latest challenges and successes that surface from across the laboratory sphere.
