At Cairn we are proud to support and promote scientific conferences and exhibitions all around the world. These meetings are an opportunity for us to introduce new products, talk to existing clients about their applications and to meet new researchers too. 

In the USA we are represented by our good friends and partners Chroma Technology and 89North. Cairn personnel are always in attendance on their booths

We are sorry to say that all exhibitions have either been cancelled or postponed for 2020 – We look forward to seeing you in 2021.  We are still operating and are available through the usual digital channels
