Biotechnology is one of the fastest growing markets both globally and domestically. Join us during the “Innovation in Facility Design” educational track at the Product Show on September 18 and hear a panel of industry experts discuss meeting the challenges – and opportunities – that go hand in hand with rapid growth.
With the US being the largest global player in this market, the biotech industry has been experiencing record growth. The dynamics within this market offer both challenges and opportunities to those who provide the real estate and operations framework serving the companies. Varying growth drivers such as product approval or M&A all provide varying scenarios that are rarely aligned with facility master plans. This means that those leading the charge for facilities, real estate & operations are constantly faced with walking a tightrope, balancing planning for expansion/consolidation, uncertain capital availability, compliance risks and business plan changes.
In this educational seminar taking place at this year’s Product Show on September 18, we are privileged to present a panel of industry experts who have successfully navigated these challenges: Ed Dondero of Biogen, Chuck Pappalardo of Vertex, and Jeff Mackay of Foundation Medicine. Pat Gallagher of Hereva Consultants will moderate the discussion which will be divided into three key segments: Growth Drivers, Strategy through Uncertainty, and Case Studies, Lessons Learned.
We will hear from the panelists, their hard earned lessons, insights for avoiding pitfalls and the myriad of operational facets to maintain throughout change implementation. While an hour is hardly enough time to broach this expansive topic, we hope to provide attendees with key takeaways from the experts, all of whom have “done that and been there.” We hope you will join us for this lively, informal discussion:
