The best way to take advantage of this surge in investment activity and cross-border partnering is to participate in ChinaBio® Partnering Forum, which will be presented digitally August 25–27, China Standard Time, allowing delegates to tap into China’s advanced biotech and manufacturing capabilities, access international investment, and bridge partnerships between Asia-Pacific and the Western world.

All EBD events feature our trusted gold-standard partnering platform, partneringONE®, allowing delegates to search for and request meetings with potential partners, and then meet at prescheduled times during the conference with unique links to a secure video conferencing solution. This will be run on an extended-day, 24-hour basis to allow participants to meet conveniently from any time zone.

In addition, company presentations will be pre-recorded and available on demand before and during the conference so that finding prospective partners will be even easier. Panels, workshops and an exhibitor showcase will also be pre-recorded and available on demand.

For a truly global experience in this time of restricted travel, attendees from biotech, pharma, and investment sectors can access the unparalleled partnering and content offered by three upcoming events, ChinaBio® Partnering Forum Digital, BioPharm America™ Digital and BIO-Europe® Digital in August, September and October, either as individual conferences, or with a Virtual Passport to all three, at a substantially reduced fee.
