What You Don't Know About Partnering at BIO World Congress – Part 1

February 17, 2016
That partnering has taken off at World Congress is the understatement of the year. Last year there were 1,400 one-on-one meetings at World Congress, which is more than twice as many as 2013. So why the uptick?

  • The name of the game in industrial biotech is increasingly partnering. Most innovation in the field comes from small companies. If you don't have what it takes to do everything - create the whole value chain - partnering is an opportunity to fill in the gaps.

  • Partnering meetings at World Congress can result in deals. Examples of real deals originating at World Congress include distribution deals, novel applications of biomaterials, and procurement of feedstock supplies.

  • You can have private, 30-minute face to face meeting with everyone in industrial biotech in North America all in one place. It’s a great travel savings. You can have more meetings at World Congress than you will have the rest of the year.

  • BIO’s partnering system provides an efficient way to connect both upstream and downstream value chain components.

Register to partner at World Congress today. No other conference gives you the ROI that partnering does. No other event results in more industrial biotech deals. Join us March 9th for our Webinar on Partnering!
