Life science researchers and laboratory suppliers alike will want to take note of the networking opportunity coming to the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign campus on April 30th, 2014: UI Urbana-Champaign Bioresearch Product Faire™ Event. This event will be the first of two Illinois shows hosted by Biotechnology Calendar Inc. for 2014, and we want you to join us this year.
Lab supply companies who exhibit at our shows consistently provide positive feedback from the shows that they attend.
Drawing from a survey from last year's event at the Urbana-Champaign campus, companies reported the following statistics:
10 solid leads for a $5000 product,
10 good leads for a $8500 product
5 good leads for a $10,000 product, to name a few!
The life sciences departments at UIUC are booming with funding and research, receiving nearly $70M in NIH grants in 2012. Some notable funding statistics include:
-$11.4M from the National Science Department in science research funding
-$25M for photosynthesis research in order to improve crop yields and address global food security
-$2.3M from the National Institutes of Health in 2012 for a quantitative stepwise analysis of RNA interference project.
Some of the most recently highlighted news at this campus can be found in the following links. These articles are provided by Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. as a free service for life science professionals through our Science Market Update resource.

Lab supply companies truly get their money's worth when they exhibit at our shows; however, they aren't the only ones who benefit. The researchers who attend our shows have the opportunity to interact face-to-face with various lab supply companies from around the United States, and through these diverse companies can discover emerging technologies and equipment that can be used in their fields of research. Researchers also get the unique chance to compare products from different exhibiting companies all in one place, making our on-campus event the most convenient way to discover laboratory products.
Last year at UIUC, we had a total of 282 attendees, of which 53 were professors and post docs, 24 were lab managers, with the balance research associates and postgraduate students. The researchers came from nearly 30 different research buildings and 39 on campus departments. A researcher from UCLA sums up their experience very succinctly:
"Very well organized, catered, with good information. I attend these events regularly and would absolutely recommend this to my other colleagues. I appreciate the availability of vendors and the information they provided. I am a regular; I come every year. This event in comparison to other similar events is outstanding." - S. S., Researcher, UCLA
