Digital Health Summer Summit, BIO International Convention Will Collocate for June Show
The Biotechnology Innovation Organization’s BIO International Convention and Living in Digital Times’ Digital Health Summer Summit plan to collocate to bring together the biotech, pharma and digital health industries under one roof.
Both conferences will be held June 6-9 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
“Teaming up with BIO will give Digital Health Summer Summit attendees unprecedented access to decision-makers at biotech and pharmaceutical companies who attend the BIO International Convention,” said Jill Gilbert of Living in Digital Times, producer of the DHSS.
She added, “Our attendees will also have the opportunity to utilize BIO’s proprietary online business development tool, One-on-One Partnering™, to identify potential partners and schedule meetings with them in advance.”
The annual BIO International Convention attracts more than 15,000 attendees, with 40 percent at the managing director level or higher.
Last year, an impressive 29,000-plus business meetings were arranged through BIO’s One-on-One Partnering system in just three days last year.
“Two years ago, we recognized the need to add a digital health track to our convention offerings, as more and more of our members are interested in learning how digital health will benefit their businesses,” said Sarah Arth, managing director, Industry and Event Education, BIO.
She added, “This year, we’ve partnered with Living in Digital Times, the experts who have been tracking this space closely and delivering provocative conference content year after year, to give our attendees an even deeper understanding of the issues at stake and the opportunity to network with digital health influencers.”
This year’s DHSS will focus on “Igniting the Tipping Point” in digital health with two full immersive days of keynotes and panel discussions. BIO’s digital health track will be the following two days.
The DHSS conference content will tackle four key areas:
· Real-world business case studies from established digital health companies with strong footholds in transforming the system
· Curated tools necessary to grow roots in this industry and elevate one’s business
· Revelation of the most promising markets and opportunities on which to capitalize
· Creating partnerships required for every stakeholder’s success
BIO will continue to offer a digital health track, as part of its more than 120 sessions offered at the BIO International Convention for those interested in the digital health sector, with a focus on the intersection of biotechnology and digital health and how the market is reacting.
