Help shape the AusBiotech 2020 conference programme


AusBiotech is calling for session proposals and speakers for the life sciences event of the year: AusBiotech 2020, to be held in Melbourne, 28 - 30 October. AusBiotech 2020 is delivered by industry, for the industry.

Compelling stories or presentations on new, innovative research, projects or approaches to industry development, and inspirational, cutting-edge session topics are sought for showcasing to a global biotech industry.

AusBiotech is seeking speakers who are forward-thinking, diverse, engaging and who drive meaningful discussion about the business of biotech. Thought-provoking session ideas should explore current trends, critical and emerging topics, breakthroughs, and stories from a range of areas that encourage creative conversations both locally and abroad.

The annual AusBiotech conference brings together more than 1,000 leading innovative thinkers and inventors across the Australian and international biotech sector. For more than three decades, the event has formed a very special part of AusBiotech’s broader work positioning Australia’s biotechnology industry for growth. As a leaders’ forum, it is also a key opportunity to connect with potential partners and investors, to reflect on the sector’s achievements and to exchange ideas to further advance the sector’s standing both nationally and globally.

Applications close at 5.00 pm, 28 February 2020.  Submit your proposal now.

AusBiotech is committed to diversity and inclusion, and submissions for panels will only be considered if they meet a balanced gender representation threshold.

Registration for AusBiotech 2020 is due to open shortly. It will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. AusBiotech is proudly partnering with the Victorian State Government to deliver the AusBiotech 2020 conference.
