Why join the 10th Anniversary of the Smartlab Exchange?

An Exchange is made up of innovative learning and networking opportunities specifically designed for senior laboratory leaders in the R&D/R&D IT, Manufacturing and QA/QC space.The Exchange is an intimate environment that creates connections which become long-term partnerships. You will experience inspiring keynote addresses, in-depth case studies, structured networking and interactive discussion groups (our signature Think Tanks and BrainWeaves). The consultative one-to-one business meetings between attendees and solution providers are carefully scheduled throughout the Exchange to meet your specific business needs



Access to the Exchange is limited. Exchange delegates and sponsors are handpicked based on their ability to contribute at a strategic level, creating the ideal environment for idea generation. The SmartLabExchange is capped at 60 attendees, creating the optimal value of your time, peers, business meetings, and speaker events. You can expect only the cream of the crop to be in attendance.



A true peer-to-peer environment means that the executives taking the stage and those in attendance are of the same seniority level. The SmartLab Exchange brings together a unique group of the most active contact center executives in the world today as they not only work to execute today’s plan but also develop the strategy for tomorrow.



A true peer-to-peer environment that sparks inspiration from Keynote Sessions, BrainWeaves, MasterClasses, and 1:1 Business Meetings as you make connections with most innovative and cutting edge executives and solution providers in the industry today.
