Customer Training and Education Conference 2018


Dear Attendee,

We have planned another compelling CTEC event this year, including a heavier concentration of customer presentations and customer-led panels, new breakout topics, and more hands-on training options. Some of this year’s topics include What’s New in LabVantage 8.4, A single solution for connecting complex instruments, Your next LIMS will be in the cloud, and more. There will be plenty of opportunities to network with other organizations within your industry, and a reprise of our Laboratory Fair with new booths. See our website for full details.

Be sure to register before prices go up! There is a hard deadline for meeting our Early Bird special pricing, which ends July 1st.

This year’s event will be held at the beautiful Loew’s Coronado Bay in San Diego, California. We have negotiated a low conference rate of $209.00 per night (plus a reduced $10 nightly resort fee, plus tax), but you must book your hotel before September 17th to secure that rate. If you wait until after September 17th, you’ll have to book your room at full price!

Our special hotel room block at the Loews is now closed!  Please call the hotel directly for availability at (619) 424-4000.  Mention the group name when making your reservation.  

Other hotel options in the area:
Crown City Inn
(619) 435-3116

Coronado Island Marriott Resort and Spa

Transportation from the San Diego airport (SAN) to Loew’s Coronado Bay is on your own, but readily available.

The week starts on Sunday, October 21st with a Welcome Reception at 6:30 p.m. Here you will have the opportunity to network while enjoying delicious drinks, desserts and snacks. We suggest arriving into San Diego airport by 4:30 p.m. to register and settle in before starting the night’s festivities.

As always, our Tuesday evening social event is dedicated to making connections with LabVantage staff and among our customers. Although the venue has not yet been announced, be assured that we have something spectacular planned.

For those receiving LabVantage training, classes begin Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. after the main conference ends. Training will continue all day Thursday, into Friday, ending by 12:00 p.m. The hotel is a short 10-15-minute ride from the San Diego airport so plan your flights accordingly.

Wish to bring the family along? Arrive early? Stay late? Our special conference rate is available to attendees both 3 days before and 3 days after the event based on availability.

Among hotels in San Diego, Loews Coronado Bay is legendary for the spectacular location and Pacific and Coronado Bay backdrops. Settle in and prepare to be pampered by our own Poolside Concierge, with extras such as chilled fruit and towels or delicious smoothie or work up a sweat with a game of tennis or enjoy a calming spa experience. Looking to discover more San Diego adventures? Right outside the resort you can catch a complimentary shuttle from the San Diego Bay resort over to the Silver Strand State Beach. Please visit the hotel website to see the fabulous array of individual and family activities they offer.

We look forward to seeing you this year in San Diego!
