The Market Visit has been organised by the Mayor of London's Export Programme, in partnership with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) to offer London SMEs an opportunity to attend this major industry international event and a chance to partner with the world's leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. 

This year’s conference promises to cover a wide spectrum of life science innovations and application areas such as drug discovery, bio-manufacturing, genomics, biofuels, nanotechnology and cell therapy are just a few of the industries represented at the BIO International Convention. The four key elements of the event are:

  • BIO Education Program
  • Networking Events
  • BIO One-on-One Partnering
  • BIO Exhibition

Among the top five reasons for attending Partnering within the BIO Business Forum are to make new business contacts, keep up to date on industry trends and issues, visit potential partners in the BIO Exhibition and network with colleagues.

Last year’s BIO Exhibition featured more than 1,800 exhibitors and covered over 160,000 square feet. The event included 55 state, regional and country pavilions who in turn hosted many companies from their regions.  Exhibitors reach high-level executives and influential decision makers who come to BIO to discover new players in the industry, form partnerships and evaluate emerging technologies.

It also attracted 15,667 attendees from thousands of organizations including the leading biotech companies, top 25 pharma companies, top 20 CROs and CMOs, more than 300 academic institutions including the major research labs and government agencies and the leading consultants and service companies.
