Lab managers, active histotechs and practicing pathologists depend on the Annual Symposium/Convention Trade Show to preview laboratory equipment, supplies and services for their busy labs around the world. Nine out of ten 2016 attendees were involved in or influence the purchasing decisions of their organization and three out of four had plans to purchase products or services as a result of attending the Symposium/Convention.
In 2016 we had 1,053 attendees. Of those 1,053 attendees we had 114 international attendees representing 25 countries.
The National Society for Histotechnology was formed in 1973 by a group of dedicated histologists with the purpose of sharing scientific and technical knowledge to the histology community worldwide. These efforts were to help advance the discipline of Histotechnology and aid professionals in their career.
NSH believes lifelong education is the key to a satisfying career and continued professional advancement.
