To celebrate our 30th anniversary, LMT wanted to take LAB DAY Chicago attendees on a walk down memory...See more lane. We pored through our old photo files--going back to 1984--and put together a video using some of our favorite pictures. Many LAB DAY attendees told us how much fun they had watching the video and searching for old friends. If you didn't see it in Chicago, here it is for your viewing pleasure!
Amann Girrbach America, Inc. · Charlotte, NC
This weekend, LMT celebrates its 30th LAB DAY Chicago! It's hard to believe that this show--the largest...See more gathering of dental laboratory decision makers in North America--began with just 30 exhibitors and about 275 attendees.
Prior to 1985, the Chicago Dental Society (CDS)'s MidWinter Meeting was housed in the downtown Hilton Hotel and a handful of companies hosted programs for the laboratory community across the street in the Blackstone Hotel. But in 1985, the CDS moved its meeting to the convention center, which left some companies up in the air about what to do for their technician customers.
LMT President Judy Fishman--agreeing with some laboratory manufacturers who felt their companies would be dwarfed at the MidWinter--booked space at the Blackstone and offered exhibit tables to laboratory product marketers. The rest is history: this weekend, LMT will host 200 exhibitors, over 3,000 attendees and nearly 250 educational programs at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers. See you there!

The call is from a company calling themselves Convention Housing Services or Exhibitor Services and they offer to help you secure your room for the meeting at a discounted rate. Generally the rate is not discounted and you will also pay an outrageous 'booking' or 'service' fee on top. You will have to hand over your credit card number and provide a signature.
Do not purchase a room through this person, do not give out any personal or financial information over the phone!
The secure link to book sleeping rooms through the LMT LAB DAY Chicago room block is: https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/StarGroupsWeb/booking/reservation?id=1307013645&key=931CE
