Hannover, Germany. The BioServices Marketplace is one of four new marketplace-style displays at BIOTECHNICA 2013. It is a central gathering point where representatives of pharmaceuticals and biotech companies can meet up with a broad international cross-section of drug development service providers, make new contacts and lay the groundwork for promising new business relationships. The BioServices Marketplace also comprises a special display for providers and developers of services and solutions for the biopharmaceuticals industry, plus a forum for company lectures on current biopharmaceutical-sector issues and trends, such as biomarkers in clinical development, new types of antibodies, modern genome analysis and cooperative manufacturing models.

There will also be a daily “Speed Dating” session for streamlined networking between representatives of biotech and pharmaceuticals companies and providers of services and solutions from the commercial and academic sectors. This is an important offering, because networking and partnership are crucial to new drug research and development in the biotech and pharmaceuticals sector. In many cases, drug companies don’t possess all the technical expertise needed to develop new drugs, and so it makes sense for them to outsource certain development, testing, approval and production tasks to external providers. This partnership model is also an effective way of managing risk and minimizing costs.

The marketplace character of the BioServices section of BIOTECHNICA 2013 makes it easy for potential customers to find the service providers they are looking for. Companies can also participate as exhibitors and further boost their profile by giving presentations at the lecture forum. The BioServices showcase is rounded out by a stimulating supporting program featuring keynote speakers from big-name companies and institutions, including Protagen AG, TU München, GATC Biotech and Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma.
