Vendor Show

PDA/VWR Fall Vendor Show

2023 OSUPDA-VWR Vendor Show

Graduate students, researchers, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, and staff in purchasing positions are invited to the PDA/VWR Fall Vendor Show to learn about what’s new in reagents, supplies and research techniques. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with more than 30 suppliers, and learn about their emerging products and technologies that can support biological, biomedical, and clinical sciences research. Attendees will also be entered into a drawing for a chance to win prizes.

When: September 13th, 2023, 10:30AM – 01:30PM

Where: Biomedical Research Tower, Room 115 (Main conference room), 460 W 12th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43210

Attire: Do you want to try your luck for winning gift cards and other awesome prizes? We have decided to do a Scarlet and Gray theme this year. Please feel free to dress up in your Lucky Shirt and join us for turning the wheel at the VWR booth!

Unloading instructions for vendors: There is a loading zone/ dock area between the Biomedical Research Tower and Tzagournis Research Facility. You can pull in here to unload before you park if needed. There will be volunteers from the Postdoc Association who will assist with unloading to help this move as quickly as possible. I will let parking services know about the event so they do not ticket anyone. We still ask that you keep your hazards on while in the loading dock area.

Room will be available for set up starting at 9AM, and we have it reserved until 3:30PM. So there will be plenty of time for tear down.
