A look at what’s in store for chromatographers at Pittcon 2018, which takes place in Orlando, Florida, USA, from 26 February to 1 March 2018.
Pittcon 2018 will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, USA, from the 26 February until the 1 March 2018. While it is true that Florida is one of the great vacation spots in the United States, it is more than just beaches and theme parks. It is the perfect venue for Pittcon because its life sciences industry is considered one of the nation’s hubs of research and innovation. Other leading industries in the state include agriculture, pharmaceutical manufacturing, biotechnology, healthcare, and medical device manufacturing. Florida’s High‑Tech Corridor spans 23 counties across the state, connected by three research universities, more than 20 local and regional economic development organizations, 14 community and state colleges, 12 regional workforce boards, countless industry groups, and the thousands of innovative companies that call this region home.
