About Company Presentations

The 16th Annual BIO CEO & Investor Conference features presentations by over 130 leading biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, as well as a number of nonprofit and venture philanthropy organizations. Last year we not only scheduled over 1200+ Partnering Meetings, but also opened additional company presentation slots as we were sold out weeks before the conference!

Presenting Companies are hand-selected for the event, and consist of a selection of mid- to large-cap established public companies from around the globe, who typically have a clinical stage program centered around therapeutics, molecular diagnostics, or a platform technology, as well as an upcoming clinical, regulatory, or corporate catalyst. This year will also feature 13-minute private company presentations, for established companies past their Series B round and who have raised >$25M. The typical audience for a company presentation features public and private equity investors, as well as industry analysts, investment bankers and senior biotechnology executives.

If you've been invited to present, confirm your presentation early to guarantee your spot! We are also accepting applications, submit one today!
