Bio 2012 – how was it for you?

A month has passed from the last BIO conference in Boston (www.bio.org) and the dust has settled to review.

Fusion Antibodies has been attending this great event over the past 12 years and although the numbers have fallen from the 20,000+ attendee peaks in 2007/08 the networking opportunities and value this conference brings is at an all time high! The numbers are down, but the quality is still there, and as the number 1 global BIO networking event, the superb partnering system allowed targeted connections and record number of meetings to be held (25,291).

At Fusion Antibodies we were fortunate enough to also have held a record number of meetings and present clients with our offerings of Antibody Humanization, Antibody Sequencing, Antibody production and Cell line Engineering & development. I come away from the BIO conference with a sense of optimism, after e-mails and calls during the year it is great to meet face-to-face and sit down with potential business partners from around the world, all in the one place. Boston was a wonderful host city, the weather was great and I look forward to seeing you at the next one!
