“We realised that having a hybrid event – allowing in-person and virtual participation – is vital in a post-COVID world, when international travel is still restricted,” said Dr Minshad Ansari, Chairman of the World BioProtection Forum. “People joining us virtually will have full access to the event programme and networking platform, and we will be streaming interviews with our exhibitors during the breaks, so virtual delegates won’t even miss out on meeting this year’s exhibitors!”

  • Keynote presentations from leading experts in industry, academia and the public sector
  • InvestorReady sessions, connecting you with potential business partners to help bring your products to market
  • Active networking opportunities, enabling you to expand your contacts within the industry
  • Awards and Gala dinner, bringing together collaborators to celebrate the brightest achievements in the sector.
