This global event brought together more than 18,000 attendees; 40% of which attended the Conference for the first time.

The organizers of both events were pleased with their first-year success and are looking forward to expanding the relationship.
Pittcon 2013 President Ronald Bargiel was very positive about the overall results of this two-day conference and commented, “The food industry is one of Pittcon’s top industries for growth. We are excited about this newly formed partnership with Food Safety Tech and look forward to working jointly to increase Pittcon’s presence in the food industry.”
Rick Biros, president of Innovative Publishing and publisher of Food Safety Tech added, “Co-locating with Pittcon makes perfect sense for everyone. This partnership makes it possible for food industry lab managers to significantly benefit from the first conference [Food Labs] focused on their needs along with having access to thousands of laboratory technology suppliers at Pittcon—All under one roof.”
