Connect with Top Baltimore Researchers in One Place in One Day

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Feb 23, 2016

The University of Maryland in Baltimore is a leading research university with a top twenty-five ranking in numerous research fields, including public health.

That is why last year, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. was proud to announce the latest addition to our popular series of life science tradeshow events- the 1st Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ at UMD, Baltimore. Read more about who attended in 2015.

After a resounding success at last year's inaugural event, we are proud to announce that lab vendors once again have the opportunity to participate in the expansive UMD life science marketplace in 2016. 

The 2nd Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ Front Line Event at University of Maryland is a great venue for connecting with active life science professionals with plenty of funding and for whom lab supplies are a necessity.

Back by popular demand, this event will host researchers from labs in over fifteen buildings and twenty-two different research departments at the University of Maryland. This is the perfect exhibiting opportunity to get in front of your target audience of life science researchers.

This one-day, on-campus tradeshow is designed to connect suppliers with the active lab supply buyers, many of whom are interested in making lab supply arrangements for all of 2016 in just one day. These are quality decision-making leads with the qualifications to purchase millions of dollars worth of R&D supplies to further their research projects.
