Asia’s Premier Exhibition of Scientific Equipment and Laboratory Technology

Bangkok, Thailand

On August 28-30, some of the world’s greatest thinkers gathered at BITEC Bangna (Bangkok) for Thailand LAB 2013, Asia’s most comprehensive trade exhibition and conference on scientific equipment and laboratory technology. Visitors to the convention found much more than just roundtable discussions - there was interactive workshops, live product demonstrations, forums headed by prominent industry figures and more.

Now in its 3rd year, Thailand LAB 2013 had 300 participants showcasing more than 700 products, representing the latest in international lab equipment and technology. With an emphasis on academics and research, the convention stands as a platform for intellectual exchange, a place where pioneers in the industry can share their groundbreaking methods with other members of the ASEAN community.

The over 5000 attendees included researchers, scientists, professors, consultants, students, marketers, purchasers, lab operators, quality control specialists.

Despite a less than rosy forecast for the global economy, the lab industry in Thailand has steadily grown, and Thailand LAB is a shining example of that. In its inaugural year (2011), nearly 2400 people came to the event; in 2012, the number of attendees leapt to 5000.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Penjit Srinophakun, President of the Thai Society of Biotechnology (TSB), says that the event created a network that Masters and Ph.D. students in Thailand can use to present their work to a large audience and push the Kingdom to the forefront of biotechnology. For the time being, Singapore remains the industry leader in the region. But Thailand has begun to emerge, thanks in part to governmental support in the form of critical tax exemptions and sponsorships by esteemed agencies like the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Department of Medical Sciences, the Ministry of Public Health and many others.

And with seminars ranging from innovations in renewable energy to nanotechnology to the responsible use of antimicrobial agents in food animals —the variety of industries represented at Thailand LAB made it the perfect environment for collaborations between business and science leaders.

World-renowned companies like Eppendorf, Omega Scientific and Thai Unique gave informative presentations on food safety, liquid handling, particle characterisation and other topics that fall into one of six major themes: HealthLab, FoodLab, BioLab, EnviLab, ChemLab and EnergyLab. And TSB hosted international forums on a broad range of topics (biotechnology, applies microbiology and biorefinery, for example). With such a Thailand LAB 2014

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
