IBC’s BioProcess International Conference and Exposition (BPI) is the largest bioprocessing event currently offered to our industry, bringing you new ideas, demystifying technology, and fostering partnerships in highly engaging formats to move drug candidates closer to approval. This year’s event will be held 26–29 October 2015 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA.
BPI is engineered to be exactly what you need it to be. Formal and informal networking experiences connect you to peers, prospects, and customers. Parallel tracks give you the option to dive deep or take a big-picture approach to learn about industry trends and challenges and benchmark them against the latest research developments. Big pharma and large, mid-size, and emerging biotechnology companies collaborating with solution providers featuring proven and next generation technologies make BPI a one-of-a-kind meeting place.
More than 1,600 bioprocess professionals from around the globe attend BPI each year to learn about leading strategies and technologies used to improve integration, productivity, and cost savings across the entire spectrum of bioprocessing and biomanufacturing.
BPI features 160+ top-level speakers across six parallel tracks, allowing each attendee to create a unique pathway that is most relevant to his or her current line of work. Six tracks are covered at this year’s meeting:
- Drug Product Manufacturing and Fill–Finish Processing
- Cell Culture and Upstream Processing
- Recovery and Purification
- Manufacturing Strategy
- Analytical, Formulation, and Quality
- Early Stage Biologics and Companies
Keynote speakers on the agenda include David Pollard (Merck), Kimball Hall (Amgen), Spencer Fisk (Novartis), Tony Moody (Duke School of Medicine), and Konstantin Konstantinov (Genzyme). For full program details, visit www. IBCLifeSciences.com/BPI.
BPI is home to the largest exposition hall devoted to biopharmaceutical manufacturing. More than 160 exhibitors will be to launch new products, showcase new technologies, and build brand awareness. This year’s exposition hall includes the return of the BioProcess International Theater, an information-packed experience designed to provide industry-critical information in several formats, including new product showcases, live speaker questions and answers, technology demonstrations, panel discussions, prize drawings, and more.
Attendees also have the opportunity to visit GE Healthcare Life Sciences’ Single-Use Biomanufacturing facility in Marlborough, MA. This is a rare opportunity to learn about the revolutionary technology behind one of the industry’s newest and most flexible good manufacturing practice (GMP) facilities in the world.
The scientific poster hall at BPI is an excellent forum for attendees to present their company’s cutting-edge research. All posters are displayed in the exposition hall for fellow attendees to view and discuss. The top two scientific posters will be announced live at the BPI Theater, and the authors will have the opportunity to deliver an oral presentation.
Secure your seat today and learn alongside industry leaders representing Abbott, Amgen, Biogen Idec, BMS, Eli Lilly, GE, Genentech, Genzyme, GSK, Merck, Pfizer, Regeneron, Roche, Shire, and more over four days of learning, networking, and fun at the largest and most comprehensive bioprocessing event in the industry. —IBC Life Sciences
