$1.5 Billion Life Science Research in the Big Apple

Posted by David Larsen on Thu, Nov 20, 2014

Are you interested in reaching the $1.5 Billion New York laboratory sales and service marketplace? 

If it were possible to meet with most of the researchers from top funded labs in three consecutive days so you could "show and tell" your products, would that be of benefit to you and your company? 

What if I told you that you can exhibit to three of the most well known research institutions in the world in three consecutive days and not only attract high level researchers but also post docs, lab managers and purchasing agents. At Biotechnology Calendar Inc. we make this a reality.

Populated with well-funded research programs, and some of the best and brightest research thought leaders, Mount Sinai, Rockefeller University, and Columbia Univerisity are comprised of some of the most profound scientists in the country. These leaders in life science publish regularly in prestigious publications and/or have received prestigious awards like Nobel prizes in the research science field. 

Now, how about if these consecutive events were held in New York City?

You're in luck! We have a great opportunity for you in March 2015! Columbia, Mount Sinai, and Rockefeller University are on the calendar for 2015. Listed below for your convenience is a synopsis of each show and details about the extensive amount of funding each university is awarded. When it comes to getting your product out on the market, these are the shows you don't want to miss!
