Pittcon 2013, the 64th Conference and Exposition for Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy, ended on a high note following its first appearance in Philadelphia. Preliminary figures for this global event, which was held at the Pennsylvania Convention Centre, were declared as 18,197 attendees; 40% of which attended the Conference for the first time. New this year was a strategic partnership between Pittcon and the co-located Food Labs Conference hosted by Food Safety Tech*: the organisers of both events were pleased with their first-year success and are looking forward to expanding the relationship.
Pittcon 2013 President Ronald Bargiel commented, “The food industry is one of Pittcon’s top industries for growth. We are excited about this newly formed partnership with Food Safety Tech and look forward to working jointly to increase Pittcon’s presence in the food industry.”
Rick Biros, publisher of Food Safety Tech added, “Co-locating with Pittcon makes perfect sense for everyone. This partnership makes it possible for food industry lab managers to significantly benefit from the first conference [Food Labs] focused on their needs along with having access to thousands of laboratory technology suppliers at Pittcon—all under one roof.”
