About the Southeast BIO Investor & Partnering Forum

The annual Southeast BIO (SEBIO) Investor & Partnering Forum will be held October 11-13, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. The conference provides an unparalleled opportunity to meet key decision makers in the regional and national life science and medical technology communities.

Celebrating its 18th year, the SEBIO Investor & Partnering Forum has built a loyal following, attracting thought leaders and investors from across the country. We expect another strong event in 2016, with new opportunities to build business partnerships and explore the region’s life science industry.

More than 300 biotech and medtech investors, corporate executives, university representatives, entrepreneurs and service providers will attend the event this year. This is a rich opportunity to showcase your company at the most significant annual life science conference in the Southeast.

To date, the more than 220 later stage and 180 early stage companies that participated in previous SEBIO Investor & Partnering Forums have raised more than $2.5 billion in public and private funding. These numbers speak to the quality of our presenting companies.

Perfectly positioned along the Atlantic coast in northeast Florida, Jacksonville has year-round sunshine and a growing life sciences community. Downtown Jacksonville is nestled between skyscrapers and the St. Johns River, and has an urban vibe with unique dining destinations, world-class museums and a variety of nightlife options. It features more than five miles of beautiful riverfront, including three miles of riverwalk. Visitors love the vibrant local culture, miles of white sand beaches, access to nature and wildlife and world-class golf (more than 70 courses and the headquarters of the PGA Tour and World Golf Hall of Fame).

The SEBIO Investor & Partnering Forum has rotated throughout the Southeast over the years – we are excited to be back in Florida and look forward to seeing you in Jacksonville this fall!
