We are pleased to announce the 6th Annual Immuno-Oncology Innovation Forum, which will take place on the 28th-29th of May 2020 at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago Hotel, USA, prior to the ASCO meeting.
The IOIF brings together leaders from cancer research institutes, patient advocacy groups, early and late-stage investors, pharmas and biotechs. We expect around 250+ delegates and 30+ presentations by established (public and private) and emerging biotechs to take place during the 29th of May. The programme will cover licensing and investment opportunities in the immuno-oncology field. Numerous networking opportunities will be available via an online One-2-One meeting system with dedicated meeting facilities designed to make the event transactional.
New for 2020 and following the success of Rising Stars Sessions in our European events, we will be adding a Rising Stars Showcase, which will open the 6th IOIF in the afternoon of the 28th of May (3pm-6:30pm). The showcase will consist of an introductory investor panel followed by around 20 elevator pitches (3-minute presentation, 1-minute for Q&A and transition). These companies/projects will be selected from applications from USA, Europe and RoW. There will be a multidisciplinary group of presenters, which will cover drug development, diagnostics and biomarkers, device, tech and digital. These will be promising companies and technologies looking for finance for early stage development. The companies will be seed i.e. pre-series A, with limited funding so far. At the end of this will be judges giving awards and a reception.
Attendance on the 28th of May, is by invitation as has limited capacity and is restricted to pharma and biotech executives, corporate and institutional investment funds, family offices and recognized advisors and private investors. In addition, tech transfer offices and incubators are also invited to participate. We anticipate a big demand therefore we ask to register early, identifying if you also wish to attend the Rising Stars Showcase on the 28th of May.
Participation for chosen seed companies in the Rising Stars Showcase is complimentary (no cost). In order to apply for the showcase, please fill in Rising Stars inquiry online, which will be open from end of February.
