a stunning number of 17,300 attendees joined the BIO International Convention
in Philadelphia. Branded with the theme “It Starts With One”, BIO highlighted
the game changing impact of the small, daily efforts of BIO attendees. One of
the exhibition floor’s highlights was the Health~Holland Pavilion, a not-to-miss
orange landmark in a sea of country pavilions. Together with a delegation of
120 Dutch biotech entrepreneurs, we look back on a successful edition.
Health~Holland Pavilion was once again the eye-catcher of the exhibition floor.
Dressed up with tulips, stroopwafels and a Dutch bike, the pavilion was an
orange living room. But most importantly, it was the central information point
for international visitors with questions regarding the Dutch business and
innovation climate and the national life sciences & health sector.
In a 13
minutes pitch as part of the Global Innovation Hub, HollandBIO’s Annemiek
Verkamman zoomed in on today’s Dutch masters of biotech. She explained why the
Netherlands has Europe’s most attractive business climate for biopharmaceutical
companies. With this year’s relocation of the EMA, the Netherlands has what it
takes to evolve into a true global biotech hotspot.
Hospitality Reception, the pavilion transformed in one of BIO’s best-visited
happy hours. In a powerful and hilarious quiz-style speech, Hans Schikan
introduced the one Dutch Strength after another to the eager crowd. His
take-home message: the Netherlands is the place to be for life sciences
companies. After the traditional raffle of the Loyens & Loeff bike,
everyone grabbed the opportunity to meet new business partners. For all
disappointed participants of the raffle: rest assured, there will be a new bike
to win at BIO 2020 in San Diego.
