The 20th annual BIO-Europe is Europe's largest partnering conference serving the global biotechnology industry.

Delegates from all parts of the biotechnology value chain come to BIO-Europe to quickly identify, engage and enter into strategic relationships that drive their businesses successfully forward. Investment and collaboration opportunities developed in prior BIO-Europe conferences have produced many highly successful business partnerships. This year´s BIO-Europe partnering event will again draw over 3,000 industry attendees from nearly 60 countries, representing more than 1,800 companies for three days of high level networking.

Partnering at BIO-Europe is powered by EBD Group’s partneringONE®, the industry’s most advanced networking system, which enables participants to efficiently mine a large pool of potential partners, and identify and pre-arrange private one-to-one meetings with literally dozens of company targets.

In addition to productive partnering, BIO-Europe offers high level workshops, panels, company presentations, and a lively exhibition. The program offers executive level panelists who openly share their insight and opinion on many important industry issues. The company presentation tracks provide a forum for innovative start-ups, established biotech companies, and large and midsize pharma to present information on products, partnering opportunities and corporate strategy. Combined, these elements create an insightful and productive event that will have you coming back year after year.

BIO-Europe is organized by EBD Group, the leading partnering firm for the global biotechnology industry, in alliance with the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO).
