Each fall since 1950, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) has held its annual National Meeting. The AALAS National Meeting is the largest gathering in the world of professionals concerned with the production, care, and use of laboratory animals. The 2019 meeting was held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver from October 13-17th. The spotlight forum was, "One Health–Connections Between Animal, Human, and Environmental Health. ClorDiSys Solutions exhibited at the National Meeting, one of our biggest shows of the year, in booth #209. The life sciences were really the second industry ClorDiSys introduced their products and services following our original focus on the pharmaceutical market.
We hosted a small dinner reception for AALAS attendees at the Denver Firefighters Museum after exhibit hall hours Tuesday evening. ClorDiSys provided a delicious BBQ dinner catered by Roaming Buffalo, and our guests had full access to all of the historic firehouse’s exhibits. From well-preserved lockers to restored antique firetrucks, even a 9/11 memorial, it really was a walk through history. The 2020 National Meeting is scheduled to take place in Charlotte, North Carolina, so we are open to suggestions for any local gems to take our group next year. Thank you to all who could join us!
