When we first released our price list for the 2015 shows, a typo was made for the price of attending the BioResearch Product Faire™ Event at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Typos happen, but now the price has been adjusted and is at the correct amount of $1,450, saving you $495 when purchasing.
The 6th Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ Event at Thomas Jefferson University will be held on May 6, 2015. This popular event brings together more than one hundred life science researchers with sales reps from lab supply companies, to help these researchers discover new products and technologies that can be used to further research in the life science labs on campus.
This Thomas Jefferson University Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. event gives lab suppliers the chance to present, discuss and promote products with researchers while answering questions and getting exposure in the always growing and evolving life science research marketplace. Showcasing the most current lab supplies right on campus provides companies with the opportunity to get brand awareness and discover new sales leads in a fun and professional environment.
At the 2014 event at Thomas Jefferson University, 134 researchers attended. Of this 134, 53 were professors, post docs and purchasing agents, and 24 were lab managers. The balance were research associates and postgraduate students.
