The 19th Annual BIO CEO & Investor Conference came to a close February 14, having drawn more than 1,225 attendees including nearly 500 investors. During a busy two days, over 2,650 partnering meetings took place arranged through BIO’s One-on-One Partnering™—a proprietary system that enables participants to move efficiently from prospective partner identification to discussion and negotiation. Held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, the event is one of the largest investor conference focused on established and emerging publicly traded and select private biotech companies who are developing the next generation of medicines and cures.
Beyond bringing investors and companies together for potential collaborations and funding opportunities, the conference featured a wide variety of panel discussions and “fireside chats” with CEOs developing innovative therapies to help patients. Professionals from all areas of biotechnology participated including the investment community, C-level biotech executives, patient advocacy and other non-profit organizations, academics and public policy experts.
There were also more than 160 company presentations from established public and private biotech companies on their latest therapies in development.
