BioPhorum to expand its collaborations in Asia

Last month we announced BioPhorum’s plans to expand our offering into Asia, creating a truly global collaboration and an even stronger vehicle for change.

We are delighted to now invite you to the final meeting in our schedule – a showcase event in Tokyo on 5 November. Come along to this complimentary event to hear about the changing nature of biopharmaceutical development and supply chain performance; Japan’s critical role in our global industry; a presentation from Fujifilm Biologics on the increasing importance of CDMOs and more. 

A reminder of our full agenda is below.  We welcome an opportunity to meet with you at some stage in our trip.


BioPhorum Asia agenda

In October, Simon Chalk, Tony White and Neil Richards from BioPhorum will travel to Asia to meet with existing and potential members of the BioPhorum community.

The trip is being hosted by MedCity, which promotes the world-leading life sciences cluster in London, and it is running the delegation for the UK Government’s Department for International Trade. The BioPhorum team will spend the first week in Japan attending a series of meetings:

  • 7 October, Kobe – symposium hosted by Japan’s Foundation for Biomedical Research and Innovation
  • 8 October, Tokyo – symposium at the Nihonbashi Centre
  • 9–11 October, Yokohama – BioJapan conference, an event for the global biotechnology industry, during which Simon will present a summary of his article on Applying GMPs to the BioPharma Supply Chain that was published by BioPharm International.

The BioJapan conference will have a ‘partnering facility’ to allow attendees to arrange face-to-face meetings with each other. If you would like to meet with the BioPhorum team, please feel free to arrange this through the partnering program or email Neil Richards on

The team will then move to South Korea and attend a symposium in Seoul on 14 October hosted by Korea Pharmaceutical and Bio-Pharma Manufacturers Association at the Seoul BioHub.
