Record Numbers Attend BOS 2019 in Basel
16th October 2019
BOS 2019 took place on the 19th and 20th of June at the Congress Centre Basel, Switzerland. We were pleased to welcome over 400 delegates to BOS 2019, up over 15% on 2018 numbers. Participants attended presentations across 3 work-streams; Discovery Outsourcing, CMC Small Molecule and CMC Biologics Outsourcing content (click to view the BOS 2019 speaker programme).

In addition to the extensive programme, attendees were able to organise 1-to-1 partnering meetings utilising the BOS Events partnering software. This “partnering “ dynamic allows attending buyers to outline outsourcing requirements. Suppliers are able to outline services offered. Buyers and suppliers can then use the partnering platform to arrange 1-to-1 meetings based on areas of mutual interest. Around 1100 partnering meetings took place at BOS 2019, significantly up on the number of meetings organised in 2018.

Our focus now shifts to 2020 when we return to Basel to host BOS BASEL 2020 on the 1st and 2nd of July at the Congress Centre Basel. In addition we return to our home market to host BOS MANCHESTER 2020 on the 17th and 18th November at the Manchester Congress Centre. Both events retain the same focus Discovery Outsourcing, CMC Small Molecule and CMC Biologics Outsourcing. We look forward to developing the events further in 2020 and working with all stakeholders to create market-leading events for the pharmaceutical R&D outsourcing community.
