Over 200 visitors and conference delegates from Sabah and Sarawak visited the exhibitors throughout the 2-day roadshow exhibition. The visitors, who come from leading research centres, government laboratories, medical facilities, and educational institutes, were here to discover the latest laboratory technologies and products while networking with potential suppliers.
Aside from the exhibition, the co-located 24th ICCE2016 conference offers an opportunity for visitors to take part in the conference activities, and meet the various delegates from around the world.
Exhibitors felt that LabAsia Borneo met their expectations, and is a suitable platform to meet the right people. “It’s a productive show for us, Apart from meeting delegates from ICCE, some whom we have working relationships with, the exhibition lets us meet researchers whom we may have missed out had we not participated. LabAsia Borneo is a suitable platform for us to generate new sales leads, and market our brand better.” said Mr. Albert Lim and Mr. Peter Ng, representatives of Anton Paar Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
A Lucky Draw event was also conducted throughout the 2-days roadshow exhibition, offering 4 lucky winners an all-expenses paid trip to visit LabAsia 2017 in Kuala Lumpur next year. The event was well-received by the visitors and delegates, as delegates came in droves to register for the draw during their break sessions.
To our exhibitors, visitors, and delegates, LabAsia thanks you for making this roadshow a success. We look forward to bringing you even more meaningful events in the future!
