Press coverage of the ABRF 2016 Annual Meeting drew accolades from the Instrument Business Outlook (IBO) in their February 29, 2016 issue (see page 7). The intent behind the article was for IBO to report on the growing attendance at the meeting, as well as the sessions and conversations among attendees from the lab manager perspective.
In summary, attendance increased for the third year in a row with 559 attendees and 237 exhibitors. Over the course of three days, 45 presentations and workshops were offered to attendees that addressed 5 topic areas: imaging, core administration, genomics, proteomics, and trending topics.
“ABRF 2016 provided an expanded program and the perfect venue for bringing together core facility professionals to get cutting edge information from vendors, scientific sessions and workshops,” says ABRF President William Hendrickson. “We continue to update the meeting every year to make sure attendees have ample opportunity to interact with scientists, company representatives and core managers. ABRF 2016 epitomized the meeting tagline: Innovative Technologies Accelerating Discoveries.”
