You may be surprised to hear that it is the biggest event you likely never heard of--the Superbowl of biotech. Don't bother navigating over to the website, there isn't one. Think of it like fight club. In fact that is a good reference, recall the first rule of fight club?
Tiny bars, restaurants, hotels, all become pop-up meeting rooms where deals made on the periphery often influence industry across the world.
The actual event is invite-only with coveted tickets to prove it. Bankers, investors, executives, companies and researchers gather from across the globe for arguably the most influential biotech conference of the year-- setting the tone for the entire year.
If you find yourself without a ticket you may have better luck getting into impromptu meetings occuring nearby the Westin St Francis Hotel, perched on the edge of Union Square.
