Representing a wide range of laboratory disciplines and services, more than 30 companies, organizations, and educational institutions will join ASCLS and AGT in Charlotte, North Carolina, June 23-27 for the 2019 Joint Annual Meeting.

The new Annual Meeting format presented an opportunity to create a unique, personalized experience where laboratory professionals and industry partners can interact throughout the event. We’ve done away with traditional “exhibit halls” and instead will feature industry displays integrated into the conference and close to the educational sessions. You won’t need to set aside a long block of time to travel to an expo hall and visit with exhibitors; you can learn about the latest in medical laboratory products and services in between sessions, during breaks, or when the time is right for you.

All industry partners are full registrants and encouraged to attend educational sessions that impact their diagnostic area or any area of interest. Partners are also welcome to participate in social activities where all attendees can get to know each other on a personal level.

New this year, the meeting venue includes two Spotlight Theaters where industry partners can provide 30-minute educational or commerical presentations to an intimate audience of attendees. During new Commerical Symposia, partners will have 30-minute sessions in education rooms for in-depth demonstrations. And attendees can now schedule one-on-one meetings with industry partners through the conference app for deeper, more meaningful conversations regarding their products or services.

Career Opportunities
In addition to learning about new products or technologies, the Joint Annual Meeting can introduce you to new opportunities in your career development.

Among the exhibiting organizations are a number of companies and organizations all recruiting for clinical laboratory positions. Additionally, some universities will provide information regarding their advanced degree opportunities for laboratory professionals.

The list of participating industry partners is expected to grow, so make plans now to join us in Charlotte, June 23-27. Register online by June 7.
