Peruse these photos to get a glimpse of some of the highlights from the Labs21 2005 Annual Conference.

On October 18-20, 2005, more than 550 architects, engineers, federal employees, laboratory owners, facility managers, and other laboratory professionals converged at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon, to discuss the latest in sustainable laboratory design and construction at the Labs21 2005 Annual Conference.

Conference attendees had the opportunity to choose from more than 50 technical presentations. In addition to the traditional sessions, the first-ever "Roll Up Your Sleeves" Roundtables were held on the final day of the conference. These informal sessions gave design teams the opportunity to lay out their new laboratory designs and receive advice from technical experts in the audience.


Conference attendees enjoyed the opportunity to network with other laboratory professionals between technical sessions.

After hearing about efficient laboratory design during the conference sessions, attendees were able to visit the technology fair to talk with nearly 40 manufacturers and Labs21 Supporters about sustainable laboratory equipment and services.


The Labs21 poster session provided an opportunity for attendees to view innovative building designs and discuss specific features with presenters who were available to answer questions.
