The BIOTECHNICA BUSINESS FORUM ideally complements the BIOTECHNICA exhibition, Europe’s biggest and most important tradeshow for biotechnology, as a get-together for the industry and a platform for the forging of networks. While the chief focus of BIOTECHNICA is on generating business, the merit of the BIOTECHNICA BUSINESS FORUM is in the opportunity it provides for direct communication with European opinion leaders and decision makers. The forum agenda will include lectures, discussions by experts as well as a grand evening function, the climax of which will be an awards ceremony for the second EUROPEAN BIOTECHNICA AWARD. With prize money of € 40,000, this competition is directed at successfully established SMEs from the biotechnology sector and was first awarded by a high-ranking jury on the occasion of the 2003 BIOTECHNICA show.
Our two-day business forum will produce discussions about political and economic framework conditions and about the prospects for Europe’s biotechnology industry. It will afford participants ample opportunity for personal exchange on the highest of levels. All participants will be invited to the BIOTECHNICA BUSINESS FORUM by way of personal invitation only. Deutsche Messe AG, organizer of the event, will forward invitations exclusively to executives from the European biotechnology industry and to high-ranking decision makers from the political and scientific communities.
