Energy levels were up, optimism was in the air and business was buzzing at LMT's LAB DAY East 2012 in the heart of Manhattan on March 31. Attendees exhibited the same eagerness and interest LMT saw at LAB DAY Chicago in February—keeping us hopeful that our industry may, in fact, have turned an economic corner. "People were excited to be at the show and seemed very enthusiastic about the economy," says Sasha Der Avanessian, Managing Director, Harvest Dental Products.
LAB DAY East 2012—the largest dental laboratory trade show on the East Coast—attracted 927 laboratory owners, managers and technicians and over 300 manufacturer and supplier representatives. Attendees came from the tri-state area and from as far away as Florida, Maine and Quebec.
