The exhibit hall, filled with local, regional and national clinical laboratory vendors, is always very popular. The meeting is designed to attract the “bench tech,” lab supervisors and managers, lab educators and students. It is an opportunity to learn new things, meet old & new colleagues and view new laboratory products.

Intermountain States Seminar
Location: Jackson Hole, WY
IMSS 2019: Focus on the Future
The Intermountain States Seminar is a unique convention that started over 50 years ago when the five intermountain states…Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana… joined forces to bring a powerful seminar into being. IMSS is held each fall in the beautiful setting of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We are fortunate to be able to attend such a renowned event.

Region VIII is kind of like family…crazy aunts, nosy in-laws and too many cousins to count…and just like family…there is nowhere else you would rather be! Come see your long-lost “relatives” in Jackson Hole this fall.
