The just ended 3-day China Bio-industry Convention saw a brainstorming among world’s top specialists in the field. And Greg Scott, President of ChinaBio, is one of the attendees.
“I’m impressed by the global focus in the event and want to hold our own conference here in the future,” said Greg Scott.
Scott is definitely a witness of the development of Guangdong’s biotech industry. And his company, ChinaBio, is a consulting company that has partnered nearly 100 life science companies from U.S., Europe and APAC with those in China since 2007.
To encourage investment and cooperation, ChinaBio has already organized over 30 conferences in China. And Greg Scott said a new record was set in their partnering conference held in Guangdong’s Zhuhai this year.
“We had nearly 1700 one to one meetings during the conference. It was the largest number we have ever had,” said Scott, “the attendees of these meetings included our western clients and the Chinese companies that have significant interest in them.”
In fact, ChinaBio did their first event in Guangzhou of Guangdong in 2009. At that time, it was of a rather small scale. But this year, the Zhuhai’s conference attracted nearly 900 specialists and entrepreneurs from the renowned pharmaceutical manufacturers like Pfizer, Bayer and Merck as well as smaller companies worldwide.
“When we were talking about the conference with Zhuhai, they were very enthusiastic because they have an ongoing pharmaceutical park project,” said Scott, “our company is now talking about cooperation with Zhuhai. And one of our client is looking at moving to the park.”
