Opportunities for Lab Suppliers Working to Turn Lab Sales Leads into Sales
Last year, the Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ Events at the University of California, San Diego attracted 738 attendees. Of these attendees, 235 were purchasing agents, professors and post docs, and 100 were lab managers. These attendees came from more than 50 different research buildings and 60 on-campus departments.
Network with active San Diego researchers by joining us at our semi-annual UCSD life science events.
“The Biotechnology show at UCSD provided a wealth of opportunities for brand awareness and business development. The staff and environment both exceeded my expectations, and I felt very supported. We had high hopes for this show and they were met. It was refreshing to engage so many prospects that directly relate to our products and services” - A. E., Exhibitor, UC San Diego BCI event
