LMT's LAB DAY West--once considered a mostly regional show--has become a "must-attend" for laboratory owners, managers and technicians, no matter where they live. Our 22nd annual show in Garden Grove, CA attracted attendees from 31 states, Canada, Mexico, Aruba and a handful of other countries.
That's really no surprise given that this year's show offered a top-notch educational venue with more than 70 seminars and clinics, a lively exhibit hall featuring the latest from 130 manufacturers and suppliers, and a chance to re-connect with old friends and network with 1,600 colleagues. All this in a laid-back environment true to sunny Southern California.
Attendees took advantage of two full days of clinics on Friday, May 4th and Saturday, May 5th, and were eager to shop exhibits on Saturday. In fact, the exhibit hall was already bustling with crowds shortly after the doors opened at 9am and exhibitors reported interest was high and business was brisk.
In addition to our attendees, LMT thanks the manufacturers and suppliers who help make LAB DAY West such a successful educational event, including our clinic sponsors: including American Dental Supply, Argen, B&D Dental, Bego USA, Candulor, Cendres+Metaux USA, Dentsply Implants, Dentsply Prosthetics, GC America, Heraeus Kulzer, Hi-Tec Dental Products, Ivoclar Vivadent, Jensen Dental, Kuraray America, Laserdenta, Lincoln Dental, Nobel Biocare, Nobilium/Ticonium, Preat Corp., Primotec USA, Sirona, Tanaka Dental, Vident, Whip Mix and Zirkonzahn.
LAB DAY West returns to Southern California next May, with exhibits on May 11 and clinics on both May 10 and 11. (Although this year's show was in conflict with the California Dental Association's meeting, in 2013 we return to our traditional Mother's Day weekend schedule.) We look forward to seeing even more of you next year—trust us, it's worth the trip.
