Lab suppliers interested in marketing life science solutions and increasing scientific product sales on the east coast may be interested in upcoming life science marketing events in the Washington, D.C. area. On October 17, 2013, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. will be holding our annual Georgetown BioResearch Product Faire™ Event in Washington, D.C. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. life science marketing events are very well attended, and the universities we work with are well-funded markets for lab suppliers marketing life science solutions. Last year, the Georgetown BioResearch Product Faire™ Event attracted 223 attendees. Fifty-nine of these attendees were purchasing agents, professors and post docs, and 24 were lab managers. The visitors came from 13 different research buildings and 21 departments around campus.

Researchers at Georgetown University received over $200 million in research awards in 2010.
