What you can expect at
Destination Characterization


The Destination Characterization Roadshow brings some of the most experienced scientists together for a day to share their research findings, provide a channel for networking with like-minded individuals, and inspire ideas for tackling challenges in research. Hear how researchers like you have benefitted from using NanoTemper products to further their research.

You’ll walk away from this event with valuable research insights, a connection with others in your field, and we also hope, a little bit of fun.

You’re invited to a special pre-event
User Appreciation Breakfast

The user appreciation breakfast starts at 8:00 a.m.
The rest of the program begins at 9:00 a.m. (see Agenda below).

This breakfast event is in celebration of you — a NanoTemper user —and to show you our appreciation for supporting us over the years. It’s because of you that we’re celebrating 10 years!

Start your day off with an exclusive breakfast at ArtScience Culture Lab & Café — meet and network with other users of NanoTemper technology. Then join us afterwards for the Destination Characterization Roadshow. We can’t wait to thank you and hear about how we can continue to support your research over the next 10 years.
