Special Events*

Special Events are one-of-a-kind programming developed in collaboration with our event partners, to bring together movers and shakers of the industry to share insights on a focused topic; hold forums or town hall discussions to help answer questions surrounding a particular industry; or to help inspire the next-generation of biotech scientists. 

These event partners are the industry's leading organizations or associations who share CHI's mission to deliver cutting-edge information through events, publishing and training, to help foster collaborations across industry, academic, government and research institutions. 

New at this year's Bioprocessing Summit, we'll be offering the following 3 Special Events that will be open to all registered attendees and Exhibit Hall Pass visitors.

Due to the high demand for these special events, pre-registration is required to guarantee your spot.

Special event participants are invited to join us for Plenary Keynote Session at 4:45pm, followed by Cocktail Reception at 6:00pm in the Exhibit Hall.
