Imagine a conference where all the Biotech CEOs and investors of the World come together…all the major players in this Industry, under one roof.
That’s basically what the J.P.Morgan Conference is about. Organized by the banking firm of the same name, it is the 34th edition this year.
And with age, comes exclusivity: The J.P. Morgan event is the secret, upmost-private, invitation-only conference with only the top influencers of the planet. It takes place every year in the beginning of January in California’s stunning San Francisco (specifically Union Square).
As one German CEO told me this week: “It’s the only time of the year where Union Square is full of Biotech people in a suit.” (And we know, SF is usually really casual and more startup hoodie-friendly). You can watch our Labiotech Tour documentary on the Biotech bubble in the SF Bay area below.
However, the really funny thing about this almost too-exlclusive event, is that the whole of Union square becomes a Gold rush in Biotech turf during the conference period.
