Four Out Of Five BioSpain 2012 Participants Identified Genuine Business Opportunities

MADRID, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

A survey reveals visitor satisfaction of 93%, while 97% would be interesting in attending future editions of the fair.

BioSpain 2012, held in Bilbao in September 2012, has strengthened its position as the principal platform for creating business opportunities in Spain's biotechnology sector. A survey by the organisation reveals that 77% of BioSpain 2012 participants identified genuine business opportunities at the event. This aligns with the objectives established by the organisation, which aims for BioSpain to drive the industry in the current adverse economic situation.

As regards general satisfaction, 93% rated the event positively and 88% stated that it had met their expectations; networking was the most highly-valued activity. In fact, partnering at this year's three-day event led to a record 2,775 one-on-one meetings, making it the fifth-largest international event of its type in terms of networking.

Moreover, 97% of those meetings are expected to lead to a second meeting at a later date. Partnering and one-on-one meetings at BioSpain are increasingly viewed as positive because of the technology available to participants; this year more than 643 technologies and products were on offer (22% more than at the previous edition, in 2010).

The survey also provides useful information regarding biotechnology firms' priorities in this adverse economic environment. The main objective of 48% of BioSpain 2012 participants was to identify R&D collaboration opportunities. Other goals were to attract potential clients (46%), learn about the latest trends and technology (32%) and study the competition (26%).

With respect to the future, 97% of participants will consider attending the next edition of BioSpain in 2014 (venue to be determined).
