Labs and research facilities have some of the most stringent building product requirements due to the nature of their business. University science facilities, national labs, R&D facilities and hospital labs, all have the common goal of building and maintaining the highest quality spaces.
The Labs and Research Facilities Summit brings together the heads of capital planning and facilities from the largest science facilities in the US. It is an invitation-only conference providing a relaxed and intimate platform for knowledge exchange, collaborating on best practices and exploring the most innovative solutions for your spaces.
Labs and Research Facilities Summit has transformed the executive conference experience. Unlike other industry events, this conference is smaller in nature and allows you the real opportunity to build solid relationships and partnerships. The all-inclusive summit provides an intimate setting and creates a highly effective channel for true collaboration.
Collaborate with your peers. Make information actionable.
