In today's world, it can be hard for companies to stand out and promote their brand. For laboratory suppliers, breaking into a new academic marketplace can be a challenge due to campus security and labs being unwelcome to solicitors. Attending an on-campus trade show event provides lab suppliers with the opportunity to display supplies on-campus, to interested and well-funded researchers from campus research laboratories.
Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. hosts prominent life science events at three of the top research institutions in Illinois. These BioResearch Product Faire™ Events bring together active, highly-funded scientists with companies able to supply these researchers with the best and newest tools available to further their research.
Coming up in October, 2015 are 3 premiere BioResearch Product Faire™ Events in Illinois, providing ample opportunity for laboratory suppliers to market lab supplies to hundreds of active researchers.
University of Chicago - October 6, 2015
The 1st Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ Event will take place at the University of Chicago on Tuesday, October 6, 2015. Ranking in the top 30 nationally for total NIH funding, the University of Chicago provides laboratory suppliers with the prime opportunity to meet face-to-face with 100 well funded life science researchers, in one place in just a matter of hours.
