The Only Phase-Based Event to Break Down Silos for Accelerating Biologics from Early Stage Process Development to Commercial Manufacturing

Online Registration is Closed

As of February 23, 2017, online registration is closed.  Please contact if you have a registration inquiry.



The BPI West 2017 agenda format is designed to break down silos across multiple departments that work in the same stage of development. With four concurrent tracks focused on early stage process development through commercial manufacturing, attendees can collectively share challenges and discuss the solutions needed to improve the speed, cost and quality of biologics development.


The exhibit hall gathers 80+ exhibitors representing global CMOs, CROs, suppliers and technology leaders who can fast-track your product to market. See live product demonstrations and discuss your needs with knowledgeable vendors from all over the world.


BPI West is your one-stop shop to network with global scientists and decision makers working across the entire bioprocessing spectrum. Collaborate with the innovators, suppliers, academic institutions and associations who can help you reach new heights of clinical and commercial success

New for BPI West 2017

Accelerating and streamlining downstream process development

Some estimates target the worldwide market of monoclonal antibodies (mAb) with the projected approval rate of four per year, on the order of $125 billion by 2020. Besides, several immunotherapies originated in the 1980’s, and 1990’s are to end their patents in the coming years. That is going to draw capital to the production and commercialization of biosimilars.

This whitepaper describes the current and future market drivers, present challenges and opportunities for bioprocessing upgrades. Also, it addresses the old challenges and innovative tools for mAbs, novel modalities, streamlining the interface of upstream/downstream processing, and controlling costs from bench to bedside.
