WWEM 2010 organiser Marcus Pattison said: "Laboratory analysis plays a major role in environmental monitoring across a number of industries. We are therefore delighted to be able to devote an area of WWEM to the laboratory sector, complete with a dedicated conference, a series of walk-in, walk-out workshops and an exhibition featuring many of the world's leading players in the laboratory sector.
"A common thread, running through all of the presentations will be advice on how to improve both accuracy and efficiency."
Whilst the Conference is repeated on both days, some visitors may require entry on both days to give them the facility to attend other technical workshops and presentations. Entry to the Lab Conference will be £55/day or £100 for both days.
Entry to the exhibition and workshops will be free (saving a daily admission fee of £20) to all pre-registered visitors, who will also be entitled to free onsite parking, free lunches and refreshments on both days of the event.
