A review in analytica history: that was the edition of the year 1974.

Time to remember for the organizer: 5,000 visitors from 24 countries and 90 exhibitors from ten European countries met in Munich from April 29 to May 2, 1968, at the first “ANALYTICA—International Specialist Exhibition for Biochemical Analysis” (or in the German original: „ANALYTICA Internationale Fachausstellung für biochemische Analysen“), which covered a total area of 5,000 square meters (1¼ acres) on the old trade fair grounds at the Theresienwiese in Munich (widely known as the location of the Oktoberfest). Quickly the decision was made: The new trade fair was going to be held every two years. Four years after the launch, it had already increased its visitor number to 9,400 and by 1978 the number was approaching 20,000. Today, analytica has not lost any of its attractiveness: Analytica 2016 welcomed 35,002 visitors from 119 nations.

In the anniversary year, scientists, entrepreneurs and users from all over the world are once more going to meet at the trade fair in Munich. From April 10 to 13, 2018, the 26th analytica will open its doors to celebrate the 50th anniversary with numerous exhibitor novelties and sources of inspiration for the laboratories of tomorrow. Analytica covers the value creation chain in the laboratory in its entire depth and width. In addition, analytica conference 2018 once more promises scientific highlights. The lectures will cover the ground from basic research to application in almost all areas: from material analysis through bioanalysis and food analysis to pharmaceutical analysis. With the Live Labs, special shows and the forum program, the supporting program of analytica 2018 will likewise address current trends and topics in the industry.
