Convocation - Biopharmaceutical 2009: An Inflexion Point

                     October 7th and 8th in Quebec City
           The most impressive gathering of the Biopharmaceutical
                             industry in Canada

QUEBEC, Sept. 28 /CNW Telbec/ - BioContact Quebec is announcing the 16th edition of its business rendez-vous "par excellence" for biopharmaceutical companies from Europe, the United States and Canada. The symposium will take place on October 7th and 8th, at the Château Frontenac.

Two key concepts are at the heart of BioContact Quebec. First, "the technology showcases", demonstrating more than 120 biopharmaceutical companies regrouped under such disciplines as cancer, cardiology, endocrinology / metabolism, genomics / proteomics, neurobiology, immunology / infectiology, medical technologies, services and others. The second concept put forth by BioContact Quebec is "the biopartnership", a structured approach of personalized meetings between biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical corporations, universities, consultants, venture capital companies and government representatives.

This year, the 16th edition of the BioContact event will allow many transactions to be initiated between pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, venture capital companies and other contributors to the industry who come to Quebec to trade new technologies, finance the development of new products and open new markets.

Many countries turn to the biopharmaceutical industry to increase their revenue, improve productivity, create new businesses and accelerate the development of new drugs. The biopharmaceutical industry is accessible to all. Competition has no boundaries and nations that understand the importance of this industry will forestall those that ignored the opportunities provided by this industry in terms of wealth creation and quality of life improvement.

We invite you to join our 600 participants in this annual biopharmaceutical industry symposium.
