New Horizons in Biologics & Bioprocessing will be back 2018!

This international educational forum will have an emphasis on change, developments, improvements, new directions, management and business areas of bio-processing with focus on technical rather than commercial achievements. Areas will include analytical techniques, cell culture and upstream processing, downstream processing and single-use systems. The event will feature about 140 delegates and 15 exhibitors.

The international target audience will consist of:

  • Biotech companies – all – start up, small-medium sized, large
  • Large Pharma with interest in biotech
  • Contract manufacturing organisations
  • Engineering houses and consultants
  • QA Managers · Process developers
  • Process engineers
  • Manufacturing and production managers
  • Procurement groups
  • Investment Managers
