Conferences We Attend

We attend a collection of events both big and small around the world. Check below for our latest schedule where you can meet with us in person and learn how we can energize your tools or service business.

JAN 16-19, 2024Advanced Therapies Week / Miami, FL

What: A combination of partnering and exhibition, ATW (or “Phacilitate” to the industry veterans) is an event that highlights the latest in cell and gene therapy business and market trends. This is not a technical forum but rather provides a broad overview of the CGT industry while affording good networking opportunities.
Who: CGT developers; CGT tools and service providers; investors.

MAR 19-21, 2024TIDES Asia / Kyoto, JP

What: A Japan-focused event for peptide and oligonucleotide-based therapeutics that still brings a global flavor. More recently, mRNA and gene- editing content has also been included. A scientific program including posters and oral presentations, with topics ranging from discovery to R&D to CMC and commercialization. A small but growing exhibition for peptide/oligo/mRNA tools and service providers reflects the emergence of oligos and mRNA in Japan and throughout Asia.
Who: Peptide, oligo, and mRNA developers, suppliers, and service providers; engineering companies; academics.

MAY 7-11, 2024ASGCT Annual Meeting / Baltimore, MD

What: An impressive event hosted by the nonprofit American Society of Gene And Cell Therapies, the annual meeting comprised of workshops, tools + technology forums, oral presentations, industry-sponsored symposia, posters, and an exhibition for tools and service providers. While focused on its US membership, there is still an international presence at this meeting with a mix of industry, academia, and patient advocates.
Who: CGT developers; CGT tools and service providers; academics; patient advocates; media.

MAY 14-17, 2024TIDES USA / Boston, MA

What: The so-called “largest event dedicated to peptide and oligonucleotide- based therapeutics,” TIDES USA is a renowned global event for oligos and peptides. More recently, mRNA and gene- editing content has also been included. A strong scientific program including posters and high-profile oral presentations, with topics ranging from discovery to R&D to CMC and commercialization. An impressive exhibition landscape for peptide/oligo/ mRNA tools and service providers. Highly recommended if you wish to learn about this space.
Who: Peptide, oligo, and mRNA developers, suppliers, and service providers; engineering companies; academics.

JUN 3-6, 2024BIO International Convention / San Diego, CA

What: The largest and most comprehensive event for biotechnology, with over 20,000 participants from round the world. A massive exhibition with a very broad audience – much more business- oriented than technical. Expect business development and corporate types more than research scientists and process engineers – but good for networking in that regard.
Who: Big pharma and small biotech searching for licensing partners or investment; suppliers and service providers promoting their capabilities; investors; legal/IP firms; other business service firms.

SEP 23-26, 2024BioProcess Int. + CGT Manufacturing / Boston, MA

What: A twofer: “BPI” is the original bioprocessing event which covers development and manufacturing of biologics and is co-located with the CGT Manufacturing & Commercialization which specifically covers cell and gene therapies. The scientific programs include posters and multiple streams of oral presentations, with topics ranging from discovery to R&D to CMC and commercialization. The joint exhibition includes both bioprocessing and CGT tools and service providers.
Who: Biologics and CGT developers; bioprocess and CGT tools and service providers; engineering companies; investors.

OCT 7-9, 2024Meeting on the Mesa / Phoenix, AZ

What: One of the best, if not the best, partnering meeting for cell and gene therapies. Not an expo, and not a scientific symposium, Meeting on Mesa is primarily for business partnering in the CGT space. Topics include technical trends in CGT development, clinical trial design, manufacturing, supply chain, and reimbursement models for advanced therapies. If your needs include licensing partners, venture capital investment, marketing collaborations, or good old- fashioned networking in CGT, Mesa is the place to be.
Who: CGT developers; global pharma; healthcare providers; investors; CGT tools and service providers.
