I think we can agree that it was a very long 2020, and we’re looking forward to seeing each other in person at CTEC 2021.
We’re planning to gather November 7-12 in Coronado, California for unforgettable events that bring the LabVantage community together from around the globe. Choose your CTEC 2021 location for the best chance to:
- Hear about best practices
- Network with other customers
- Find solutions to your latest challenges
- Get hands-on access to new software
- Talk with LabVantage Professional Services teams and executives.
At this year’s CTEC, we will review the newest updates to the LabVantage platform.
In LabVantage 8.7, which is due to be released in mid-2021, we’ll release our new Portal that is now fully integrated into the LabVantage platform. This will include features that allow your client organizations to make requests for laboratory testing, review test results, receive reports, order testing kits, and more.
As part of our LabVantage 8.8 release, which will be released about a month after CTEC, you’ll get a preview of the improvements we’re making to re-do calculations, enhancements for biobanking, array handling, and many additional customer-requested enhancements we’ve received through Vantage Care.
As always, you will have plenty of opportunities to network with other organizations within your industry, meet with LabVantage project teams, and attend training sessions.
CTEC North America Event and Registration Details
Be sure to register before prices go up! There is a hard deadline for meeting our Early Bird special pricing, which ends September 14th.
This year’s event will be held at the beautiful Loews Coronado Bay Resort. If this location sounds familiar, it should! This is where we held our 2018 event, and it was loved by everyone! Pamper yourself with a visit to the spa, which offers massages, body treatments, and facials. You’re sure to appreciate the recreational amenities, which include 3 outdoor swimming pools, outdoor tennis courts, and a fitness center. The resort also features wireless Internet access, concierge services, and babysitting/childcare (surcharge).
Looking to discover more San Diego adventures? Right outside the resort, you can catch a shuttle from the San Diego Bay resort over to the Silver Strand State Beach or the downtown Coronado Village. Please visit the hotel website to see the fabulous array of individual and family activities they offer.
We have negotiated a low conference rate of $229 per night (plus tax), but you must book your hotel before October 11th to receive that rate. If you wait until after October 11th, you’ll have to book your hotel room at full price.
