The right combination that generates open discussion

The Paperless Lab Academy is now well-known for its specific format that are considered from the organisation as the main pillars that are consolidating its growing reputation. The plenary session is composed of a mix of technical presentations, users experiences, thought leaders challenging the status quo and positioning concepts like IoT, digital twin and blockchain for the lab of the future. Meanwhile, the providers have the opportunity to showcase their ultimate solutions during their workshops and at their booth.

While plenary presentations, workshops and networking sessions are rotating along the day, both visitors and expositors have multiple opportunities to discuss and deepen the numerous topics covered along the agenda.

The PLA2018 set the stage this time with a c central them focused on the ability to empower the complete data life cycle by ensuring that the main stream of a digital pathway where covered: eConnect, eManage, eDecide, eArchive.

A lot been discussed on those 4 areas in the previous weeks while preparing the event and the conversations are still undergoing maintaining  the momentum created by the open discussions generated between attendees of different markets and background.

The infographics summarises the outcome of such event but will never be able to translate the amount of interactions and new ideas that it has generated in everybody’s mind.

A unique Lab informatics solutions showcase

The Paperless Lab Academy has also the ability to attract 25 sponsors every year that are making possible the free entry to visitors. 25 lab solutions providers that are looking for the possibility to interact with a very dedicated audience. From the organisation,  we´re proud to see a good number of new comers every year, along with the big international leaders. Fact is that in Europe there are limited visibility on all the available solutions in the market. Google search brings us quickly to the biggest ones but not to the youngest innovative European companies or to the American, Indian, Canadian and Australian companies that have not entered in Europe yet.

The paperless Lab Academy is the place to be for such companies looking for a first entry door to Europe.

Supported by thought leaders from companies like Gartner and Accenture, the PLA becomes the place to be for those new companies looking for challenging the status quo of the market.  Their solutions are new, innovative and aligned with the latest requirement of the industry. For sure the biggest ones have the ability to react and invest intensively in their R&D efforts, acquire complementary solutions and compile a series of solutions in the aim of offering a complete portfolio to their customers.

The new comers are also challenging gin the status quo by establishing listing collaborations and partnership leveraging their solutions and marketshare.  In multiple occasions the Paperless Lab Academy has ease interactions between providers looking for creative collaborations.

Definitely looking for #PLA2019  outcomes
