24 - 25 April 2018

Connecting Science, Technology and Business to Optimise Bioprocessing

Thank you to everyone who attended 2017 summit

Thank You to our Summit Attendees

The BioProcess International European Summit team would like to extend a huge thank you to all the delegates, speakers and sponsors who contributed to another fantastic year of meetings, updates and thought leadership. With streams covering registration of upstream, downstream, cell line development, process analytics, viral safety and vaccines there were many take home points.

Mark your calendar - 2018 dates have been released and we are delighted to announce that we will be returning to Amsterdam on 24-25 April 2018. Early Bird booking will open in December 2017, be sure to register your details below so you don't miss out!


BioProcess International European Digital Week is a complimentary webinar series focused on across all phases of bioprocess development. 

A week-long series of free webinars with live Q&A continues to connect experts from mAbs, vaccines and next generation product communities throughout the year from the comfort of your desk. Get the latest updates from leading industry speakers and gain an insight into some of the most innovative topics and research.

Highlight your company's expertise with year-round engagement to global bioprocessing end-users and key decision makers.

“For Purolite Life Sciences this was our most successful tradeshow event to date and the foot fall at times was overwhelming! Our stand was very busy from start to finish sometime three rows deep. The target audience who attended matched very well with the technology that we offer and the organisation from your team made for an excellent show. Looking forward to 2018 already." - Chris Major, Sales & Marketing Director, Purolite Life Sciences

“The premier annual bioprocessing event for the development of biologics - covering critical CMC topics from cell culture, purification, formulation, and analytical through scale-up and production. The BPI conference is one meeting that everyone looks forward to attending.” - Denny Kraichely, Ph.D., Johnson & Johnson

”This conference is always a great opportunity to get a very comprehensive overview of new trends in biologics process development, manufacturing aspects and new trends in the biologics business.” - Wolfgang Noe, Ph.D., Vice President, Bioprocess Development, Biogen

“The BPI Live Lab tour was a great opportunity to see new technology and meet vendors that would not necessarily have been on my radar. It is a really good chance to get high level overviews in a punchy and effective format. I would recommend every attendee to take advantage of this opportunity” - Team Leader Downstream Process Development, Allergan Biologics
