IBC’s Biopharmaceutical Development and Production Week covers today’s critical issues from all angles to provide you with a deeper understanding of the forces affecting your company and driving the bioprocessing industry. Customize your learning and networking experience with access to

  • 700+ bioprocessing professionals under one roof

  • 103 presenters to share strategies and lessons learned

  • 45 exclusive case studies

  • five shared plenary sessions

  • two exhibit halls with >60 supplier companies.

Together, these five conferences deliver the latest technical and scientific approaches in upstream and downstream processing to accelerate development and optimize production. Benchmark your latest QbD/DoE efforts against those of industry leaders. Learn how new process validation guidelines will affect your manufacturing decisions. Hear how companies are integrating upstream and downstream processing and building a stronger connection with analytics at the process interface. Obtain practical tools and approaches to help make the best outsourcing decisions for your company’s needs. Examine proven approaches to ensure successful process and method transfers. Use proven approaches to overcome the upstream and downstream challenges in producing specific classes of proteins. Meet and network with >700 bioprocessing scientists and engineers.

Back By Popular Demand: Three strategic discussion groups will focus on new technologies for antibody purification, enabling technologies (What tools will take you to the next level?), and outsourcing of upstream bioprocess development. The fourth asks, “Can the biopharmaceutical industry make better progress by working as a community rather than as individual companies? What are the hurdles?”
