SUPA Annual Gathering Exhibition

At the SUPA Annual Gathering this year an exhibition will be held in the Great Hall where you will also find the catering for the Gathering.
The exhibition this year will have three sections:
  • A supplier exhibition where you will find the companies you deal with to furnish equipment for your research;
  • An impact exposition where leading industry partners will show examples of how they have translated SUPA physics into their products and services; and
  • A SUPA exhibit where SUPA and its associates will be on display.
