We are staying with an autumnal date the for 2015 when we will once again be showcasing the best of UK and European biotechs in a one day format. Some 50-60 European and UK biotech companies will be presenting and are looking for partners, investment or services. Our audience will comprise 250 - 300 delegates from the pharma, biotech, investor, CRO and service sectors.

The 2015 conference is being held at the King's Fund conference centre at Cavendish Square in central London. The King's Fund is a major player in shaping UK's healthcare system by working with individuals and organisations to shape policy, transform services and bring about behaviour change.
Partnering is an essential component of the conference - especially for those seeking licensing deals. The on-line partnering enables delegates to arrange 1:1 meetings on the day with the presenting companies or fellow delegates. Partnering will be open from 5 weeks before the conference until the day before the conference starts.
Many of the presenting biotechnology companies are looking for funding through venture capital routes and have the opportunity to pitch to investors. Investment via development deals with big pharma is also an important route for company development and EPIC provides the perfect platform to start negotiations.
To compliment the structured partnering there will be informal networking throughout the day with a mix of companies, investors and scientists plus a networking drinks reception to end the day. Limited exhibition stands are available for company promotion and networking.
