    Jointly organized by both the global Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) and the Taiwan Bio Industry Organization (Taiwan BIO) the BIO Asia–Taiwan International Conference and Exhibition was held for the first time in 2019. The gathering was a roaring success and exceeded all expectations, with more than 1,500 from 25 countries representing biomedical, pharmaceutical, genomics, biotech services, equipment and instruments, academic research, cosmetology products and bio-based healthcare attending the five-day festival of events.

    A Rare Opportunity to reach out to Global Partners during the Pandemic

    With such success and as an endorsement of Taiwan's standing as a leading Asian biomedical industry hub, BIO and Taiwan BIO announced that the event would be held again this year. However, the COVID-19 pandemic affecting international travel has necessitated a change of format; this year's event will be a unique blend of online and live gatherings — BIO Asia–Taiwan 2020 Online + Live, to be held July 22-26 in Taipei, Taiwan.

    BIO Asia–Taiwan 2020 Online + Live will bring together biotechnology and pharmaceutical executives and investors from North America, Europe and Asia to meet and explore business opportunities with Taiwan’s emerging biotech sector in both online and live settings. The five-day event will feature rich programming, online company presentations from Asia and around the world, BIO One-on-One Partnering™ meetings, online seminars and workshops, and an online exhibition. And online meeting lounges and other social media-type activities will facilitate and replicate the social and networking elements so important to the typical conference experience. 

    Finding Cures in the Crisis

    This year's theme 'Finding Cures in the Crisis' highlights the global focus of the entire biomedical industry on efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic; including from the therapeutic, diagnostic, medical equipment, and vaccine development sectors. BIO Asia–Taiwan 2020 Online + Live will be the first and biggest major industry gathering in Asia since the beginning of this global crisis, and notably hosted in Taiwan, widely praised for the efforts of its government, industry and its people in jointly and successfully fighting the spread of the pandemic. A large number of seminars and panel discussions will be focused on this vital topic, as will many of the featured companies and medical solution providers.

    The conference will focus on five topics: Combating the Pandemic, Advanced Therapies, Precision Medicine, Digital Health, and Investment & Collaboration.

    BIO Asia–Taiwan 2020 Online + Live will again feature the renowned BIO One-on-One Partnering™ platform, an easy-to-use online meeting scheduling system to search for and identify potential partners, collaborators, investors and in- and out-licensing opportunities. Face-to-face meetings will be held over private and secure video links 24 hours a day during the event period. With over 2,000 meetings made via the system during BIO Asia–Taiwan 2019, we expect that with no geographical limits over 3,500 meetings will be successfully scheduled during the 2020 event. Registration will open in May and the BIO One-on-One Partnering system will open in June.

    Along with as strong COVID-19 focus, 
    BIO Asia–Taiwan 2020 Online + Live will again showcase Taiwan's growing digital advantage in this sector and spotlight biotech, pharmaceutical, medical devices, precision medicine advances, as well as AI applications, ICT and IoT technologies, and new healthcare/medical investment opportunities.
    From any point on the globe, make sure to join us in Taipei at 
    BIO Asia–Taiwan 2020 Online + Live, and let's show that while we may not be able to gather in person, nothing stops innovation!
