Welcome back to Pittcon!

The long-awaited return of Pittcon – one of the world’s foremost analytical chemistry conferences – is finally over as it makes its comeback in 2023. Taking place from March 18th – 22nd at the Pennsylvania Convention Centre in Philadelphia, Pittcon will once again be hosting a range of lectures, symposia, networking sessions, and short courses alongside its world-famous exposition where manufacturers will be showcasing the cutting-edge of laboratory equipment and systems.

The last two years have been difficult for everyone, and Pittcon was no exception. Pittcon 2020, held in Chicago in March 2020, was a success – though, regrettably, many international guests were no longer able to attend due to COVID-related travel restrictions.

As the pandemic wore on, it became clear that many events would not be able to take place in their usual form.

Now, however, with COVID-19 under control, Pittcon will be returning to its former glory in 2023 with the first in-person event in over two years. Starting on the 18th of March 2023, Pittcon will once again be welcoming a diverse crowd of analytical chemistry professionals, experts, and enthusiasts for four days of engaging talks, events, and expositions.

Face-to-Face Collaboration

Pittcon 2021’s range of online programming provided a much-needed opportunity for scientists and experts around the world to connect in the middle of an otherwise very isolated time. However, while the online event was a success, it is impossible to replicate the value of real-life, in-person communication for science.

The value of face-to-face collaboration to the advancement of science would be difficult to overstate – and it is this face-to-face communication that forms the foundation of Pittcon. Since 1950, Pittcon’s annual conference and exposition has provided a place where like-minded people can make connections, share ideas, and work together to find new solutions. In this way, Pittcon events have, together, made an incalculable contribution to the field of analytical chemistry.

In 2023, attendees and exhibitors alike will once again be able to experience the full-scale benefits of Pittcon in person. There really is no substitute for walking the exposition floor, having conversations, examining state-of-the-art equipment, and listening to talks from world-leading researchers in person.

The benefits of Pittcon are not limited to those who attend the event itself. Pittcon’s steadfast commitment to science outreach sees them donate over a million dollars each year in the form of equipment grants, scholarships, research grants, and awards for teachers and professors, internships for students, and grants to public science centers, libraries, and museums.
