If you are a part of the biotech or lab supply industry, you know that life science trade shows are crucial to the success of your marketing campaign.
Unless you want to spend huge amounts on travel and marketing materials, however, it can be prohibitive to attend every single trade show event. That’s why it’s crucial to make sure the events you do attend are of the utmost quality… and nothing gives you a better opportunity than events hosted by Biotechnology Calendar, Inc.
No matter the size of the company or your annual marketing expenses, all companies can be created equal in the research supply marketplace if you select the trade show opportunities with the best value.

1. Local marketplaces with premium venues
Constantly traveling to trade shows around the country can start to get expensive when you account for travel, hotel and meals. Participating in local events eliminates most of these expenses and gives you the opportunity to
make connections that are closer to home and easier to nurture. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. offers events year-round at over 50 leading institutions from coast to coast, so there is always an opportunity to participate in your own region.
