Activate Science, an annual event series organised by Thermo Fisher Scientific and attended by laboratory personnel across Europe, reached delegates at 28 customer sites in 2017.

Emily Quinton, European marketing communications manager, commented: “Activate Science has reached nearly 3,000 delegates in eight European countries this year and provides a valuable opportunity to network and get hands-on with all the latest products at a customer site.”

Activate Science events are aimed at all laboratory personnel, including anyone who uses or purchases products. Delegates have commented that they value being able to talk to suppliers in a relaxed atmosphere away from the laboratory. They also enjoy seminars covering topics relevant to their work as well as learning about new techniques and developments that enable them to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
