Date:9/18/2012

MADRID, September 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

6th International Meeting on Biotechnology to be held at Bilbao Exhibition Centre (BEC), in Barakaldo (Bilbao), from 19 to 21 September

The figures gathered to date by the BioSpain 2012 organisation show the event will be a major success and evidence the growing importance of biotechnology in Spain.

The 6th International Meeting on Biotechnology, BioSpain 2012 (http://www.biospain2012.org)-a biennial event, is organised by ASEBIO, the Spanish Association of Biotechnology Companies, in cooperation with Society for Competitive Transformation (SPRI), an agency of the Basque government, this year. BioSpain 2012 will run from 19 to 21 September in Bilbao Exhibition Centre (BEC), in Barakaldo.

International participants account for 30% of the total and twenty-five countries are represented at the event. The main countries, in terms of both participation and exhibition space, are the UK, the US, France, Germany, Mexico, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The trade fair is fully booked with 216 exhibitors. The event will attract 1,450 professional visitors and 750 companies.

Also, the space for partnering/business development meetings provides room for up to 4,500 one-on-one meetings. That figure would place BioSpain in fourth place among the world's biotech business development events (from 7th place at present).

Regina Revilla, President of ASEBIO, considers that these figures evidence the importance of biotechnology in Spain. "We are very proud of the response on the part of our companies and institutions, and of the great interest that BioSpain 2012 has aroused, considering the large number of interesting biotech events in other countries. We are confident that BioSpain 2012 will fulfil participants' business expectations and help develop the industry in Spain".

A new feature of BioSpain 2012 is the biotechnology Career Fair, which will enable students and professionals to interface with companies and academic institutions in order to explore employment and training opportunities.

BioSpain 2012 also includes an Investment Forum. A total of 32 projects have been presented and will be assessed by a panel of Spanish and international experts. Other features include breakout sessions and Biotec 2012, the scientific conference of the Spanish Society of Biotechnology (SEBIOT).
