The new business event for the US bioeconomy

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.

A unique focus on 1-2-1 commercial meetings

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.







Where technical meets business

Bio Innovations Midwest will unite the bioeconomy value chain from lab to market and drive change through commercially viable innovation.

Leadership teams from New Product Development, R&D, Innovation & Technology, Business Development, Marketing & Brand, Finance, Engineering, Scientific, Operations and Corporate Sustainability will attend to collaborate as the US goes through the biggest transformation and re-allocation of capital and jobs in its history.

We will connect you with your next customer or partner and help you scale your business

Bio Innovations Midwest is the only event

Companies invest in Bio Innovations Midwest to

I can’t think of a better location to host the first-ever Bio Innovations Midwest event than Omaha, Nebraska. The Midwest, especially Nebraska, is at the very center of the rapidly growing biomanufacturing sector in the United States and this event will provide an opportunity to showcase Midwest companies, innovations and assets. Having the organizers of World Bio Markets behind this event only magnifies the event’s importance and the need to commercialize today’s bioeconomy.

A future global bioeconomy will be worth somewhere between $4 trillion and $30 trillion dollars. A well-developed bioeconomy will reduce the nation’s dependence on fossil fuels, revitalize U.S. manufacturing and employment, create a more resilient supply chain, address concerns regarding national competitiveness and national security, improve the nation’s health and the environment, and contribute significantly to the goal of creating a net-zero carbon economy.
