The Festival of Biologics is Europe’s most important gathering of big pharma, biotech, academia and industry professionals
The Festival of Biologics combines four outstanding conferences, the
European Antibody Congress,
World Immunotherapy Congress,
World Biosimilar Congress
Clinical Trials World Congress
to make one amazing event.
With both a conference and exhibition, the show brings together industry leaders to meet, discuss and showcase their work in the biologics, biopharma and immunotherapy fields, just to name a few.
The Congress hosts high-level speakers hailing from big pharma, biotech, academia, regulatory bodies, investor groups, and associations, discussing topics representing key challenges within their industries, new data, case studies and research.
This year, presentations will move through the entire development pipeline and focus on commercial applications.
Join thousands of attendees across the three days to maximise your time with four conferences in one. Discover new innovations and build new business relations on our exhibition floor with solution providers, biotech industry leaders and world class pharma professionals.
Find out about the latest developments in the industry with our Start Up Zone or Poster Display where leading and emerging professionals can exhibit their findings.
The Festival of Biologics’ mission is to bring together the full value chains from the antibodies, immunotherapy, clinical trials and biosimilars industries together, located in Basel – a major life science hub. The Festival of Biologics takes place 15-17 October, join us this year to Discover, Develop and get to market.
Our flagship conference, the European Antibody Congress first graced the stages of Lyon in 2004. Our first event consisted of just 40 speakers and 100 attendees. Between 2004 and 2018 the congress has grown from strength to strength, moving from Lyon, to Geneva and settling in our Basel home in 2015. Over the years we’ve added additional long running events – the World Biosimilar Congress (est. 2012 in London) and our newest additions, the World Immunotherapy Congress (est. 2016 in Basel) and Clinical Trials World Congress (est. 2018).
The high quality of the presentations and the opportunity to exchange views with those that are really moving the field forward.
