Bioshares Biotech Summit 2021 .... Deferred to 1H 2022
It’s time to gather together for the 16th Bioshares Biotech Summit. For the first time, Bioshares will be supporting the Regions and heading to Albury, NSW. A date will be set for 1H 2022. This is the 16th Summit, proudly organised by Bioshares, Australia's leading independent biotech investment publication.

Registration & Program

Registration for the Summit will re-open in 1H 2022. A conference program will be available shortly after registration re-opens. It will feature an intense two-day program, with approximately 25 speakers and excellent networking opportunities within the biotech industry and investment sectors.  

The Summit usually attracts between 150-175 attendees – a size where everyone has the opportunity to meet. Summit participants include biotech CEOs, fund managers and retail investors, with the last Summit hosting over 60 biotech companies. The Summit is also relevant for many of the supporting industry groups, such as technology transfer specialists and pharmaceutical licensing executives.

Location and Getting to Albury
The Summit will be held at the Albury Entertainment Centre. Albury has been chosen as the location for this year's event because it is easily accessible by car from Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, or by plane with direct flights from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
