CARLSBAD, Calif. & NEW YORK & FRANKFURT, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The twentieth annual BIO-Europe® international partnering conference will take place November 3–5 in Frankfurt, Germany, at the Portalhaus Messe Frankfurt conference center.
“BIO-Europe has continued to be the leading European life science partnering event because of the high caliber companies that bring their teams to partner,” said Florian Schoenhammer, Group Managing Director, EBD Group. "In fact, this year we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the event which has grown from just 97 attendees in 1995 to over 3,200 in 2013. The reason for this growth is simply that it continues to successfully facilitate dealmaking in the industry."
