Isabel Muñoz-Willery and Roberto Castelnovo, owners of the consultancy firm NL42 Consulting and organizers of Paperless Lab Academy® - the international event that attracts more than 250 attendees between sponsors and visitors from all over Europe and beyond-, are in this time of the year busy planning the #PLA2020 edition of the congress, acknowledged by Gartner & Accenture as “THE” European Lab Informatics event, a tradeshow with more than 30 specialized solutions and services providers. Data-driven technologies are changing and shaping organizational processes and business models influencing the way knowledge is managed at individual, organizational and interdepartmental level. At #PLA2020, the data is at the center, presentations and conversations will flow from masterdata to oncology and FAIR principles, from BIGData to Artificial Intelligence, from data analytics to business intelligence, from data integration to data integrity, from raw data to Internet of Lab things, and much more. While preparing the new edition, the foundations of the event remain the same: free access to attendees coming from companies that own a laboratory, showcase of consolidated and new solution providers, agenda composed of content-rich presentations and interactive sponsored workshops, not to mention, of course, stimulating networking sessions. The location? For the third year in a raw, the podium has been earned by the Italians: it has been an easy decision though, thanks to the positive feedback gathered from attendees, visitors and sponsors of the 2018 and 2019 editions. Easy to reach by train from Germany and Switzerland and by flight to the Milan Malpensa international airport, the Grand Hotel Dino in Baveno - Lake Maggiore - will be the venue to host #PLA2020. Everyone gets ready then, and…save the date. JUNE 3 & 4 2020, destination Lake Maggiore – Italy.
