Since its debut in 2000, LAB DAY EAST has become the must-attend event on the East Coast. Held annually in the heart of New York City, LAB DAY EAST has captured the attention of eager audiences who appreciate the central location, educational clinics and busy exhibit hall.

Recognizing a strong need for networking and recognition among members of the community, LMT Founder Judy Fishman sought ways to bring technicians together for an exchange of information and ideas. At the same time, manufacturers, eager to offer programs targeted specifically for laboratories, were looking for opportunities to do so during the Chicago Mid-Winter meeting. Conditions were perfect for the creation of LMT's LAB DAY, which made its debut in February 1985.

What began with 31 exhibitors and about 400 attendees has grown to 200 exhibitors and over 3000 attendees. LAB DAY has become the industry's most comprehensive, most highly attended trade show in the history of North America drawing attendance from all over the world.

In 1991, LAB DAY WEST made its debut in Anaheim, California and has become the second largest dental laboratory trade show in the country with attendance of well over 1700 since 2008.

LAB DAY EAST made its debut in 2000 and continues to build its presence on the east coast with close to 1,000 attendees every spring, making it the third largest show in our community.
