We are happy to invite you to our annual LRIG New England Fall Seminars and Exhibition which is being held at the Boston Marriott Cambridge Hotel. This is a free event to our members where you can visit our seminars and exhibition floor and talk to our participating speakers and exhibitors. There are also free workshops provided by some of exhibitors where current issues and topics are discussed. Last year, we had more than 45 exhibitors participating and we hope to have even more this year.
Food and non-alcoholic beverages are provided for free to all members and exhibitors during this event. For those interested in purchasing alcoholic beverages a bartender is available to provide you this service for a fee.
There are multiple parking options available including two parking garages within a block and street parking is available where appropriate. We do not validate parking for this event.
The Grand Ballroom is located on the 2nd floor of the hotel. It can be accessed using the escalator or the elevator. The Discovery and Endeavor meeting rooms are located on the 3rd floor. There is a stairwell just outside the Grand Ballroom which will lead directly to the meeting rooms. The elevator will also access the 3rd floor meeting rooms from the 2nd floor.

Laboratory Robotics Interest Group (LRIG)
Laboratory Robotics Interest Group (http://lrig.org) is a rapidly growing special interest group focused on laboratory automation. Our membership consists of scientists and engineers, primarily from the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, with chapters across the US and in Europe. Our semi-annual regional meetings are informal and are intended to facilitate communication and to share current best practices and experiences in laboratory automation. Presentations and vendor exhibits cover such topics as high throughput screening, drug discovery, combinatorial chemistry, compound purification and distribution, data management, pharmaceutical dosage form, dissolution testing and product formulation along with others.
