BIO International Conference 2011

GoIndustry DoveBid North America participated in the Bio International Conference from June 27th –June 30th in Washington DC. The BIO International Convention is the largest global event for the biotechnology industry, attracts the biggest names in biotech, offers key networking and partnering opportunities, and provides insights and inspiration on the major trends affecting the industry. Go-Dove Sr. Mgt. representatives in attendance were: Jack Reinelt, Romie Castelli, Nick Jimenez, Tom Laster and Jigar Shah.  There were many visitors from biotech / life sciences, pharmaceutical, federal and state agencies, international government agencies, and major media publications organizations.

Some of the top biotech and pharmaceutical companies in attendance were: Allergan, Amgen, Merck and Pfizer.  Top consumer companies included DuPont and P&G.  Additionally, some top media publications organizations were BioPharm International, Pharmaceutical Online, and Pharmaceutical Technology.

We conducted two meetings with senior editors of Life Science Reader and BioPharm International on our participation in upcoming articles on the secondary markets and asset management challenges. We had very mutually informative conversations with numerous potential buyers.  We conducted several demonstrations of our service offering and benefits.  The end-user’s organizations varied from CRO’s and universities to SMB and large corporations.

Based on strong attendance and interest, we are considering participating again in the BIO International Conference in 2012.
