Last week I had the pleasure of spending several days in Boston with Admiral Instruments co-founder Stephen Hung. We were there to exhibit at the Materials Research Society conference and meet with several customers and technology incubators that Admiral Instruments is partnering with as equipment sponsors.
The MRS conference was particularly interesting because it's the first time we exhibited at the Fall meeting. Normally we only attend the Spring meeting held locally in Phoenix, but we decided to exhibit at the Fall meeting given the traditionally larger attendee turnout and exhibit floor. Indeed, there was an impressive turnout of nearly 7,000 attendees according to the conference organizers! We appreciate all of the familiar faces that visited our booth, as well as meeting many new scientists from all around the world.
It was a pleasure touring a few of the different customer sites and tech incubators where our Squidstats are currently used, or will be used soon. In particular, I enjoyed visiting Greentown Labs and hosting office hours to give an opportunities for electrochemistry-related companies in their incubator an opportunity to have questions answered by me. Greentown Labs was also hosting the Sunrise II Solar Summit the evening of my visit which drew a crowd of around 100 people all involved in solar PV technologies. I encourage any readers of this post to visit Greentown Labs next time you're in Boston to tour their brand new 58,000 sqft campus expansion!
Given the growing number of customers and collaborations we are engaged in all around Boston, it's safe to say that the Admiral Instruments team will be making regular trips back-and-forth from Phoenix. Keep an eye on our homepage for postings about our future Boston travel plans!
