About India Bio @ BTS

Bangalore was the first city in the country to host the IT event in 1998 and Biotech event in the year 2001. Bangalore IT.com and Bangalore India Bio thus became the most sought-after event for the global IT and Biotech community to connect with India. In the year 2017 these two flagship events of India were collocated under the Bengaluru Tech summit. Since then India Bio is the new Avatar of iconic Biotech event and the reach of the show has grown multifold in its new format as it converges with global tech community @ BTS.

India Bio @BTS 2020 is expected to bring the best minds from India and across the globe over three days and 15 sessions discussing breakthrough ideas in Life sciences and technologies. There will be sharp focus on how the global biotech community is collaborating to address the immense challenges faced by the worldwide pandemic.

The conference attendees will be who's who from the biotech and allied fields and it will be a great place to network and forge new ties through multiple opportunities offered to registered delegates.
