Event overview

I have travelled many times to Basel in the past both for personal and work reasons. This time it was to attend the Bio-Europe Spring conference bringing biotech and pharma professionals from across the world. The conference is overall much smaller than the JPM/Biotech Showcase in San Francisco which I also attended earlier this year. I felt that the conference was well organized and the opportunity to hear from and meet a number of Pharma companies was much better. The UK Booth was supported by a number of amazing individuals from the department of Trade and Business who helped companies like SMDG to navigate the conference. I had a chance to meet many people from a number of companies from the U.S., Europe and Asia and we are now following up on all the meetings we had in Basel.
