Our Work

Over the past years, we have successfully worked with multiple organizations to bring professionals together. Our company led and participated in multiple conferences and exhibitions across the globe. Find out how we helped others in key conferences around the world.

BioPartner UK has led delegations of up to 32 companies to Barcelona (3), Milan, Amsterdam, Turin, Paris and Stockholm. Each company registered through BioPartner has benefited from a substantial discount on the entry fee, and we managed TAP grant applications for 22 and 26 companies in 2010 and 2011, totalling £48,800. We organise the UK exhibition stand, providing a focal point for the delegation as well as promotion of individual companies through logo placement and literature display. Further opportunities include discounted presentation slots at the conferences and networking opportunities.

If you would like to join our next delegation, and for more information on the UK companies that took part in these delegations, check our dedicated webpage.

Bio-Europe 2014 feedback:

      • Thank you for supporting our attendance, helping us to access funding and a presentation slot. We look forward to being part of future delegations with BioPartner.
      • The BioPartner UK staff were very helpful and genuinely wanted everyone to get the best out of the meeting. They made every attempt to ensure that the delegates were accommodated.
      • The Biopartner team did a fantastic job yet again in making this a successful event. We look forward to joining the next UK delegation organised by BioPartner.
      • BioPartner helped us to obtain valuable funding for this event and also additional help through Bionow. Without this help we certainly would not have had such a success at the event. It’s great to have a central meeting point and the added benefit of introductions from BioPartner to others in the network.
      • I was very pleased to be part of the UK delegation, and found this provided an excellent focal point to meet new potential clients and collaborators. The breakfast meeting was particularly useful and I look forward to hopefully participating at future events coordinated by BioPartner.

Working with the Canadian network, Life Sciences BC, we organised and led the first UK delegation to BioPartnering North America, which was held in Vancouver, between 29 February and 1 March 2011. This 10th edition of BPN welcomed 800+ delegates, including 497 companies from 28 countries. Our UK Delegation included CDSS (now renamed Illingworth Research), Domainex, Oxford Expression Technologies, Q-Chip and others. We distributed £6,000 of TAP grant funding, and in both 2011 and 2012, 14 companies took up our discounts and subsidised conference package.

Working with ASEBIO, the Spanish Bioindustry Association, we organised and led the first ever UK delegation to BIOSPAIN in Pamplona, Navarra, and followed up repeat visits to the conference in Bilbao September 2012, 2016 and Santiago de Compostela in 2014. Our UK Delegation enjoyed a packed conference agenda with breakout sessions, an exhibition hall, investment track and 1:1 partnering meetings. Members of the Delegation were both surprised and delighted by the range and depth of commercial leads presented by the Spanish lifescience sector, and our links have been strengthened by Spanish delegations to the Anglonordic Life Science Conference held in London each year.
