28 September 2023

Handlery Hotel San Diego, CA, USA

Changing regulations, skilled labor attraction and retention issues, increased sustainability goals, and rising costs are just some of the challenges facing the global lab community.

However on top of these common planning, design, and regulatory challenges, lab owners on the West Coast are facing unique complexities such as aging stock, high costs, environmental challenges, and state-specific regulations.

To overcome these barriers and ensure they remain competitive in a dynamic market, managers are reassessing and redesigning their lab facilities to ensure they are sustainable, efficient, cost-effective, and occupant-centric.

Join us at the Lab Facilities West Summit to uncover key strategies, insights, and best practices to overcome unique challenges in an interactive and collaborative environment.

It was a pleasure be part of this event. I really loved how the agenda was laid out, the tracks running simultaneously and allowing time in between to move from one to another. This flexibility that your team created really allowed us to pick what we were interested in more effectively. The agenda was also spot on for what seems to be on everyone’s minds.

Thanks for the opportunity to participate as a moderator for the Lab Facilities Summit. I thought that the highlight for me from the conference was the great mix of biotech and pharma companies present to exchange ideas and share solutions that have worked for our common problems. For my session, I thought I had a great group of very engaged audience members and was at the right size to have a great discussion about my topic.
