Design Excellence Awards winners will have the opportunity to accept their prizes in person at the 22nd annual Lab Design Conference, in San Diego, CA on May 16-17. Now part of the LabX Media Group events portfolio, the Lab Design Conference offers a robust program of educational, informative sessions led by leaders in the laboratory design/build industry. Learn about the latest trends and techniques in lab design, network with your colleagues, and view the newest products and technologies in the exhibit hall. A special Lab Manager Track will feature sessions on how project teams can effectively communicate with lab management to successfully complete their lab builds. Optional lab tours on May 18 will offer an inside look at some of the San Diego area’s most innovative scientific facilities. Design Excellence Awards winners who attend this conference will have the chance to accept their award in person. Visit to register for this exciting event.
