reasons to join us in shanghai

China’s biotech scene has been exploding over the past 2 years. Chinese investors are not just pouring billions into new Asian startups, they’re also jumping into global syndicates backing a new generation of startups in the US and Europe as well.

This October, we’ll be bringing top industry players in China and the US to Shanghai for the inaugural run of the US-China Biopharma Innovation and Investment Summit. For US companies, this is a chance to explore the most important emerging healthcare market in the world, with a forecast on drug innovation and a chance to meet potential partners. And you’ll hear directly from a group of headliners on both sides of the Pacific on the most important developments you need to be aware of, with a special focus on the regulatory scene.

This is a crucial year for US-China biopharma and you won't want to miss this 2-day summit we're planning for you at the Shanghai Four Seasons, located in Pudong in the ultra-modern 21st Century Tower.
