Virtual Events

LabRoots' virtual events are the world's largest online-only conference series focused on the life sciences, laboratory animal sciences and clinical diagnostics communities exclusively online. These online conferences offer much of what an attendee would see at a physical conference including continuing education credits, networking opportunities with thought leaders in their field, presentations by industry experts, as well as browse the exhibit and poster halls. All without the cost and hassle of travel.

Starting in 2018, LabRoots will be producing virtual events on a more dynamic platform, offering seamless learning across all desktop and mobile devices.

You can now interact and engage like never before on our new platform! Implemented with new gamification features and leaderboard point system, you can network, learn and connect with new colleagues earning points as you move around the virtual event hall.

To register for any upcoming virtual event, use the menu bar at the top of any page on the LabRoots site. Click "Virtual Event" and select the one you wish to register for.
