The Future of Biotechnology and Research in Just 5 Trade Fairs

Biotechnology has wide application across every aspect of medical care, industry manufacturing and agriculture. With complex economic and industry systems comes the necessity for complex solutions and that’s where biotechnology, scientific research and engineering comes into play. The past two years have shown even higher demands for the field given the stresses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, there has been a lot done in personalized medical care, clinical trials and agricultural yields.

Which are the trade shows and exhibitions, which chart out the future of biotechnology and give companies the necessary visibility to establish contacts and generate business? We’ve narrowed down the list to five must-see trade shows.

We’re opening our list with ACHEMA, which is held in Frankfurt, Germany. This international trade fair takes place once every three years and has been active for a century. ACHEMA is usually the first place to experience cutting-edge innovations across a variety of related fields including chemical, pharmaceutical and biotech research and manufacturing.

The trade fair has also been one of the first events to explore potentials for sustainability practices in energy and environmental services as well. ACHEMA is the perfect platform to connect with decision makers in the field as well as share expertise with leading scientists and engineers. You definitely do not want to miss out on the support program!

P-MEC is a leader for pharmaceutical machinery, technologies and equipment. As part of the CPhI brand, this international trade fair travels to different cities across Europe every single year to showcase technological innovations in the pharmaceutical sector. The transient nature of the trade fair makes it effortless for exhibitors to access new markets and network with new potential customers every edition. That is quite the advantage to have as a brand.

P-MEC also benefits from the synergy of being co-located with CPhI worldwide, ICSE, InnoPack, FDF and BioProduction. The multi-fair event draws in a large audience made up from thousands – all coming from related fields. It’s definitely one of the best ways to establish yourself in the industry.

Next on the list is Analytica. If you’re professionally connected to laboratory technology, analysis and biotechnology, then you absolutely know the importance of this trade fair. Based in Munich, Germany, this biannual trade fair has established satellite events in China, India and Vietnam and is a major sourcing platform for industry, research and science. What makes Analytica important is the overall exploration of the production and value chain of modern laboratory processes.

Trade visitors come for the definitive innovations in their sector and stay for the incredible support program. Analytica invites renowned scientists to take to the stage for specialized forums, special shows and the Live Labs.
In Hannover, there’s LABVOLUTION, a biennial trade fair servicing the needs of laboratories in terms of lab equipment and lab workflow optimization. As such, it connects a variety of fields and sectors thanks to its broad product portfolio. LABVOLUTION functions as a multi-sector event with crossover appeal and a wide international reach on the territory of Europe.

The multidisciplinary event is the perfect procurement platform for everything from chemicals and reagents to laboratory techniques, medical technology and pharmaceuticals. You also can’t afford to miss the incredible conference, which will touch on every relevant topic. Speakers will take to the stage to discuss sustainable life sciences, air recirculation costs, new directions in development of drugs and plastic consumable.

We wrap up the list with another Germany-based event (this time in Munich), BIO-Europe – the definitive platform for business development in pharma and biotechnology sectors. Every year pharmaceutical, financial and biotechnology companies have a chance to network with buyers and investors on a large scale. Honestly, there’s no other trade event geared towards financing within the biotech industry.

This conference promotes networking and the sharing of expertise. The main objective is to meet with key people in high-ranking positions and learn as much as possible regarding the state of the market. On the agenda are subjects like how to find new talent, how to build innovative pipelines, applications of RNA and data sharing for collaboration.
