QUIBIM in BIO 2017

QUIBIM at BIO 2017

Our company was present again this year in the incredibly huge BIO International Convention in San Diego, California, from June 19th to 22nd. Our registration included both a booth at the Spanish pavilion and the access to the One-to-One partnering meetings.

We had 15 planned meetings and many other new contacts thanks to the interaction at our exhibitor space with agents interested in QUIBIM business model. We made several demonstrations of QUIBIM Precision platform and image analysis capabilities in clinical trials. From all the contacts and meetings performed at BIO, I wanted to point out the classification we found according to their profile:

  • Scientific parks and incubators (30%)
  • Investors in Life Sciences (20%)
  • CRO’s and Pharma companies (50%)

From our experience last year in San Francisco, in this edition there has been a higher interest from scientific parks and incubators beyond Boston and Silicon Valley to attract companies to their facilities, showing the benefits of establishing the companies in specific locations, specially in the different states of US. The number of investors stayed similar, but we have been an increasing interest in the field of Medical Devices. Regarding CRO’s and Pharma companies, most of them are progressively considering medical imaging in their clinical trials, and the best, considering us for their solutions. We are so proud to cover those unmet needs on advanced image analysis services for Clinical Trials, allowing pharma companies, CRO’s and Principal Investigators to follow-up in real time their study. In fact, one of the main trends at BIO this year was how data processing will change the way new drugs are developed and launched into market.

We were so glad to have this exhibitor space at the Spanish pavilion, and compared to previous editions, it was also the first time that the Valencia region had a dedicated area inside it (similar to Biocat from Catalonia and Biobasque from Basque Country). The Valencia area was organised by IVACE (Instituto Valenciano para la Competitividad Empresarial), and the organism was represented by Mrs. Mónica Payá (representative for foreign investment of IVACE). The Principe Felipe Research Centre (CIPF), was also represented by Oscar David Sánchez (Projects and Technology Transfer Manager).

All the days at BIO were so productive that there is a significant work to be done at home, contacting back with the people we met and following up these new relationships.

Obviously not everything is work and there is also some spare time for entertainment at BIO, in the following picture, a rock band playing at the middle of Gaslamp quarter in San Diego. The streets were closed to welcome BIO 2017 participants in a nice evening with food, drink and music, a nice experience!
