Following the success of the inaugural 2020 competition, Lab Manager has launched its second annual Lab Design Excellence Awards program. Leaders in the lab design industry are invited to participate in this prestigious competition by submitting their lab facilities for consideration as "the best of the best." The winners will be publicly announced at our Lab Design Digital Summit conference, to be held on May 11-13, 2021. 

 The Lab Design Excellence Awards program recognizes and honors the best newly built or renovated lab and R&D facilities across the globe. We will be presenting top awards in three categories: Innovation, Safety, and Sustainability. Lab facilities completed and occupied between Jan. 1, 2019 and Jan. 1, 2021 are eligible to enter the 2021 competition. You may submit as many different labs as you would like, each with its own separate entry form. 

The competition guidelines, FAQs and helpful tips for entering, and the official entry form can be found at

Entries are due by Feb. 15, 2021

 We will be honoring the winners of the Lab Design Excellence Awards at our Lab Design Digital Summit, where the top prize winners for Excellence in Innovation, Excellence in Safety, and Excellence in Sustainability will present an inside look at their groundbreaking lab facilities to our audience. 

Good luck—we look forward to learning more about your lab!
