September 28, 2016 until September 30, 2016
ASEBIO, the Spanish Bioindustry Association, organises each edition of BioSpain together with a local institution from the host city/region. This year, the co-organiser is the Basque Government, represented by the SPRI, the Basque Business Development Agency.
Between 28-30 September 2016, Barakaldo will be the stage for BioSpain, a forum offering all biotechnology actors the opportunity to share knowledge, ideas and experiences about a lot of issues (cosmetics, food, health, energy, …). The event has become the main international platform which showcases Spanish biotechnology and provides answers to the commercial, academic and information needs of the sector.
BioSpain is today the 5th largest partnering event in biotechnology in the world, with 3.327 one-to-one meetings, +320% more meetings than the first time the partneringONE® system (EBD Group) was introduced in 2008.
It consists of a commercial fair, a partnering event, an investment forum, a training and employment forum, conferences on a range of issues (with parallel sessions) attended by national and international speakers, and a scientific conference organised by scientific societies. The event has now become the biggest country-based fair in Europe and the fifth biggest in the world in terms of the number of business development meetings.
