Access the world’s best life sciences event for free*
June 12th - 13th 2024 | BCEC Boston

The Festival of Genomics & Biodata
The best things in life are FREE

The Festival is designed principally for scientists and clinicians who are working in the fields of genomics, other omics, and/or using biodata , to further research, drug discovery, healthcare and – ultimately – deliver better patient outcomes.

Topics covered include genomics, single cell/spatial biology, multiomics, biodata, cancer research, drug discovery, AI, microbiome, proteomics, liquid biopsy and so much more.

It’s brimming with essential insights from 160+ world class speakers , challenging discussions on essential topics (see the full agenda here ), and powerful learning and networking experiences.

Not only that – it’s free for 90% of attendees.

Registering will give you access to 7 theatres of presentations and panel discussions, roundtable discussions and workshops, post-event recordings for sessions you miss (for attendees only), and a variety of unique features that will help you push your work forwards and have fun at the same time.

The Festival of Genomics & Biodata
A purpose beyond profit

The event is free for 90% of attendees. You might be asking, ‘what’s the catch?’

There is no catch. The Festival is breaking the myth that the best life sciences events are also the most expensive to attend . And we have good reasons for doing this.

The Festival was set up after the death of the CEO’s father to cancer, and with a mission to deliver the benefits of genomics to patients faster . It was set up to prioritize social impact, not profit . You can read more about this here .

Access to newly published work is often behind a paywall. Most events cost a fortune to attend. This holds back progress and denies opportunities for scientists and clinicians to learn and develop.

We want to change that – by democratizing access to valuable intelligence and experiences that will push your work forwards , and ultimately benefit patients.

Make no mistake.

This may be a Festival packed with fun things to do and discover. But our priority is for all attendees to leave with new workable solutions, connections, ideas, advice, insights and intelligence that will make a tangible impact to your work – more than any other life science event you’ve ever attended.
