For laboratory professionals, Pittcon is like a delayed Christmas. There is waiting, planning and anxiety in the weeks leading up to the conference, only to culminate in excitement and joy for a few days. Children receive presents at Christmas; Pittcon participants receive eye-opening technologies. Close enough.

Companies spend years working on techniques and technologies they hope to debut at Pittcon one day. In the last 65 years, these developments have revolutionized laboratory science, helping it evolve to become the multi-billion dollar industry it is today. Traditionally held in early March, Pittcon also sets the tone of the industry for the rest of the year. Whatever trends we see come March 8 to 12, 2015 in New Orleans will reverberate through the industry during the year, bringing us all the way through to March 2016.
