Both Melbourne and the biotech industry are set to benefit this October when International BioFest 2016 becomes the focus of global biotechnology.
Hosted at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), this event will be the largest-ever gathering in Australian life sciences, with three major conferences coming together in one week in one place as one integrated network.
AusBiotech is a national industry organisation comprising of companies and individuals seeking to advance the biotechnology and life science industry in Australia by offering representation and services. AusBiotech is an expansive network of over 3,000 members in the life sciences.
AusBiotech 2016 is its national conference. To have it in Melbourne is a major win for the city, especially considering it will be joined by 17th International Biotechnology Symposium and Exhibition (IBS) and Australia Biotech Invest, making it the largest gathering in the life science sector in our nation’s history.
It will be held at MCEC from the 24-27 October and expects to attract over 2,500 delegates from all over the world.
Club Melbourne Ambassador Dr Anna Lavelle, Chief Executive Officer of AusBiotech, believes the Australian biotech industry is positioned for fast global growth and development.
