A glimpse of what’s on offer for chromotographers at Pittcon 2017, which will be held from 5-9 March 2017 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, USA

Pittcon 2017 will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, USA, from the 5 March until the 9 March 2017. Chicago is more than just a big city. Besides its striking downtown, which includes some of the tallest buildings in the world, it has a distinctive coastline, hundreds of vibrant parks, and 77 unique neighbourhoods. This truly distinguishing mix of global attractions and local charm make it one epic city.

Pittcon 2017 is shaping up to deliver an exciting, educational, and highly productive event. Whether you have attended in the past or are new to this global conference, you won’t want to miss all there is to experience this year. Leading companies from more than 30 countries will offer a world-class exposition that will showcase the latest chromatographic and ancillary equipment. The technical programme and short courses will provide a unique chance to learn about the latest chromatographic techniques and research from prominent scientists in fields including biomedical, environmental, genomics and proteomics, fuels and energy, analytical chemistry, materials science, food science, pharmaceuticals, polymers and plastics, QA and QC, water and wastewater, and more.

New this year will be the Magnificent Mile that runs the entire length of the hall. This area will be dedicated to entertaining activities, our first ever Lab Gauntlet, which is a series of lab challenges for the participant to successfully complete, food vendors, information of interest, relaxation areas, massage stations, giveaways, award ceremonies, and many other exciting events.

The Live Demos will be returning for a second year. Attendees are invited to participate in interactive product presentations from companies in a dedicated area covering such topics as air monitoring and new techniques in food, water, and pharmaceutical testing, as well as products to increase laboratory efficiency and recent developments in spectroscopy, laboratory procedures, sampling, and analytical techniques.
