The conference program will cover bio-economy and bio-fuels, advanced therapies, food bio-technology, personalized medicine, sanitation products and venture capital, among other topics.

“I am pleased we will be working with ASEBIO and Invest in Bogota to provide partneringONE at BIOLATAM,” said Carola Schropp, President of EBD Group. “There is great potential in the Latin America biotechnology sector, and partneringONE is uniquely positioned to facilitate highly productive partnering that will result in new collaborative opportunities to benefit economic growth.”

BIOLATAM is being co-organized by the Spanish Bioindustry Association (ASEBIO), the organizer of BioSpain, the fifth largest trade show in the biotech sector worldwide in terms of business development meetings in 2012, along with Invest in Bogota, the agency for the promotion of the Colombian capital city. EBD Group provided partneringONE to BioSpain 2012.

EBD Group is well known in the industry for the high caliber of their events, and we were aware of the excellence of their partneringONE solution from our experience working with them on BioSpain,” said Regina Revilla, President of ASEBIO. “When we originally conceived of BIOLATAM, we knew the importance of having a seamless partnering component, and it just made sense to work with EBD Group.”

partneringONE facilitates one-to-one meetings to take place at the event between companies across the life science value chain, from large biotech and pharma companies to financiers and innovative start-ups. Meetings are scheduled prior to the event and delegates can manage their schedules online. Up to 20 life science events each year rely on the robust platform of partneringONE, provided as a third-party service.

The system generates over 40,000 one-to-one meetings annually at EBD Group’s six life science partnering events held around the world.
