The Indian spin-off of the international trade fair analytica has a very large share of international exhibitors who above all present products for the analysis sector. As of the autumn of 2015, the two events will be held at the same time as one another. According to Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München, the combination offers clear strategic advantages: “Taking over India Lab Expo puts us in the leading position on the Indian market for analysis, laboratory technology and biotechnology”. Acquiring Indian Lab Expo is also an additional building block in Messe München’s internationalization strategy.
