BIO Latin America is the ideal venue to explore the innovation and partnering opportunities in Latin America’s rapidly-growing life science industry. Join high level executives, government leaders, academics and investors from around the globe to discuss trends, navigate industry challenges and policy frameworks, attend company presentations, conduct BIO One-on-One Partnering™ meetings and learn about investment opportunities within this emerging market.

Building on the success of the BIO International Convention and BioPartnering Latin America™, BIO and Biominas have launched BIO Latin America, the industry’s must-attend conference for innovation and collaboration in Latin America’s rapidly-growing biotechnology sector. High level executives, academics and investors from around the globe will come together to discuss trends, navigate industry challenges, attend company presentations, conduct 1x1 partnering meetings and learn about investment opportunities within this emerging market.

The conference features private, pre-arranged meetings between senior-level executives, using BIO’s proprietary state-of-the-art computer software, BIO One-on-One PartneringTM. The format and selective nature of the conference makes this the premier dedicated biotech partnering event in Latin America and an unrivaled opportunity to meet with the leading international pharmaceutical, biotech, industrial and biochemical companies in one place at one time.

Aware of that, the conference organizers have decided to put together this “wrap-up panel” in which BIO, Biominas and ABBI will recapitulate some of the main discussions held in the three days of event, bringing an analytical outlook of what’s happening in Latin America’s life science industry, as well as a look ahead on the trends for the coming years.
