World Bio Markets efficiently connects the bioeconomy value chain. From feedstocks to biotech to consumer brands and retail and everything in between. I believe that this event will grow year on year and cement its position as the ‘must attend’ event for the bioeconomy.

Highly targeted and pre-arranged 1-2-1 commercial meetings are key to accelerating the growth of the bioeconomy and are at the heart of World Bio Markets.

Our format removes the element of luck from traditional networking and provides the most cost and time efficient way of connecting with potential new customers and partners.

In the run-up to the conference, all attendees can view each other’s profile and pre-arrange 20-minute meetings via our online planner.
