The annual Pittcon Conference & Exposition will be held in Orlando, Fla., at the Orange County Convention Center March 11-15, 2012. Long known as the gathering place for the best minds in science, this world-class conference attracts leaders in scientific and technical innovation.
"Pittcon is a most dynamic venue for scientists and researchers to come together in one place to see the newest equipment and learn the latest analytical and measurement techniques in areas such as food and product safety; environmental hazards; homeland security; medical; and drug research and development-all of which impact our everyday lives," says Jon Peace, president of Pittcon 2012.
The Conference, the world's largest annual laboratory science conference and exposition, will have an estimated 1,000 exhibitors, 2,000 presentations, attendees from more than 90 countries and the attention of the world as new discoveries are unveiled.
Topics ranging from homeland security, pharmaceutical, environmental, food safety, energy and other sciences of interest will be covered via networking sessions, technical presentations and short courses where attendees and journalists will be able to meet with the top experts on subjects of their choice and hear what's coming for the consumer.
