Over 400 industry leaders will connect via a programme of pre-arranged 1-2-1 commercial meetings, knowledge exchange and networking.
This two day event will present the Midwest as the heartland of the US bioeconomy and will generate deal flow between bio developers and producers, global brands and buyers, investors and financiers, community enablers and suppliers.
Regionally, the event provides a home for the bio manufacturing community in the Midwest and will facilitate, much needed, knowledge sharing and collaboration.
Domestically, the event will connect the wider value chain and will help innovators scale from lab, to pilot, to demo, to industrial at a greater speed and with a higher success rate.
Globally, the event will promote the capabilities of the region to Europe and Asia and why it is a great place to do bio business.
Highly targeted and pre-arranged 1-2-1 commercial meetings are key to accelerating the growth of the sector and are at the heart of the event.
Our format removes the element of luck from traditional networking and provides the most cost and time efficient way of connecting with potential new customers and partners.
In the run up to the event all attendees can view each other’s profile and pre-arrange 20 minute meetings via our online planner.
The event is split into six primary areas of value consumption.
