If you will attend the BIO 2008 conference in San Diego and would like to meet, please contact Bruce Donnelly as above.  We will be organizing a special session with new research on global biotech industry clusters and investment trends with fDi magazine.

fDi magazine (Financial Times group), for which we handle US advertising sales, hosted a special private event during BIO 2007 in Boston about global investment trends in the life science and biotech industry with market research consultants from IBM and Oxford Intelligence.  This was similar to a September 2006 presentation about global investment trends across many industries, with updated research

Selective directory of economic development representatives (by location) at biotech and life sciences industry events, and professional service providers (by specialty)

The following links to the directory below include economic development agencies, also known as investment promotion agencies (IPA's), and related business development organizations around the world which are known to be focusing on the biotechnology, life sciences, and environmental or related industries for future capital investment projects.  They typically are actively supporting their existing base of companies and industry cluster development initiatives in their regions through partnering events, technology business incubators, university science parks, research or technology parks, angel investor networks, venture capital initiatives, small business "accelerator" or mentoring programs, R&D incentives, tax incentives and other services.

Please contact us if we may be of assistance.  This directory is provided for convenient reference, as explained below, because we specialize in well-qualified personal referrals to help executives develop their capital investment project plans anywhere in the world, while related services (see below) support B2B partnering interests in this industry and others too.

The 2007 fDi North American Cities of the Future awards were presented to winners during the BIO 2007 convention in Boston, May 6-9, 2007.

We are working on other plans for BIO 2008 in San Diego.

Many of the leading economic development agencies in the world promote their regions as business cluster locations at BIO each year to attract the interest of executives in the biotech and life sciences field.

Ad Recall : Directory of fDi advertisers

We attended the BIO 2006 (April 9-12, 2006) biotech trade show in Chicago, and BIO 2007 in Boston.  Please contact us if you would like to meet us at BIO 2008 in San Diego or any other time, or if your company is growing and we can assist you (free) with your expansion plans anywhere in the world.

We also attended Bio 2004 and BioParks 2004 in San Francisco for networking purposes, but not as exhibitors.  Refer to the BIO convention website for the full list of all BIO exhibitors, or for the AURP Bio Parks conference, with descriptions as provided by their exhibitors.  We selectively list organizations below which we consider to be relevant to our business development specialty.

See how to request a relevant directory listing, and our suggestions for reciprocal links.

Refer also to our global directories of location consultants, incentive consultants, international and intellectual property law firms, tax advisors, design, engineering and construction firms, corporate real estate firms, HR specialists, and other professional contacts relevant to our work. 

We can also highlight Profiles of service provider capabilities as well as business locations which focus on this industry or others. 


We specialize in personal, independent introductions to relevant professional service providers such as business location strategy consultants and our many economic development contacts according to the project interests of the executives we serve.  Please contact us to discuss such services or introductory referrals.


The International Business Introduction Service

for Technology-Led Business Cluster Development

The selective directory below includes Bio 2004 and BIO 2005 exhibitors and AURP attendees, plus updates from BIO 2006 in Chicago and other sources.  It is limited to economic development organizations and related investment promotion agencies or professionals relevant to our work, including AURP BioParks attendees representing science parks, incubators, and public sector technology transfer or R&D programs.  We do not list corporate attendees or all exhibitors here (see the event organizer websites for such listings and descriptive details).  We also list some publishers, associations, foundations, and other event organizers we have met which seem to be very relevant to the economic development profession as it relates to the growth of the biotech and life sciences industry, because this should also be useful to visitors to this website.

This directory demonstrates how our "Event Recall" service can be helpful to executives and their advisors by highlighting the many economic development organizations which have invested to be exhibitors or participants at major industry trade shows.  They can otherwise be hard to find in large event directories which are organized for other purposes, and it can also be hard to quickly identify which areas - out of thousands worldwide - already have established or are trying to develop larger biotech or life sciences industry clusters.

This directory makes it easier to identify potentially relevant business locations and services which are investing in marketing work to develop clusters in this industry.  We make it easy to find their websites, and can introduce relevant contacts personally at any time.

The directory below lists many relevant exhibitors, event attendees, and website links.

Areas participating in our service will have more complete listings for a year (executive summary, contact name, phone, etc.) through GUIDE Area Profiles, Area Surveys, or other related content to highlight their area's benefits for potential investors in this industry.

Professional service providers can also highlight their capabilities through Service Profiles.

It would be difficult for event attendees to develop a simple list like this of all the business development contacts which they may want to meet before, during, or after an event. They are typically scattered among a very large number of of exhibitors, and attendees may have other priorities for their time during a large convention or simply prefer to meet privately.

In any case, once such an event is over, the directory information about past exhibitors may soon disappear from the event organizer's websites as they prepare for the next year, even though this knowledge remains potentially useful for the investors and advisors we serve.

The key executives may not have attended a particular event, or may not have met these contacts there.  If they did attend and meet, this simple list makes it easier to find these contacts again, and easier to plan ahead for introductory meetings at future events.

A note to visitors who are concerned about the biotech industry

Environmentalists and other activists or potential opponents of the biotech industry are encouraged to look into , sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research in Washington DC.  This is just one of many complex topics which they address.

Whether or not one accepts their unabashedly conservative point of view, there are links to information which may provide useful additional perspectives for those who are willing to carefully consider other views, rather than just oppose biotechnology research and industrial development at all costs.  It tends to be easier to find the websites of vocal opponents of biotech, but the issues are more complex than vocal critics may be willing to acknowledge.

There are risks and potential consequences in the development and introduction of any new technology, but there are also very serious consequences from inaction.  For example, global poverty and health problems cause needless suffering and the terrible waste of countless lives each year.  Scientific and industrial research and sustainable development needs to better support the many needs of mankind in an environmentally responsible way. 

Abstract "moral" attacks such as the absolute "right to life" approach to stem cell research or opposition to GMO's in agriculture tend to neglect the greater right to life of children and adults in the developing and developed world.  Is it morally justifiable and ethical for those of us who enjoy healthy lives in prosperous countries to let so many other people suffer needlessly?

If you have concerns about the biotech industry, invest the time to learn more about it.

Recommended reading : Dr. Patrick Moore, Greenspirit Strategies

In particular, consider the views of Dr. Patrick Moore, one of the co-founders of Greenpeace, who was an outstanding speaker at BIO 2004 in San Francisco.  EnviroTruth quotes a few of his remarks about the debate over GMO's such as genetically modified foods, but consider his own words through his website at or some of his "The Sensible Environmentalist" columns for ESPN Outdoors, or buy a copy of his book.  His essay on "Environmentalism for the 21st Century" is highly recommended.

You may even find his profile in Wired magazine, "Eco-Traitor", to be more balanced than the title suggests.  His basic premise is that environmental sustainability is not threatened by science and technology, but rather can be enhanced by the better-informed choices we make about industrial development as we address the legitimate needs of mankind with greater sensitivity to the potential risks and unintended environmental consequences.

Instead of the radical environmentalist or "eco-terrorist" and anti-globalization opposition to virtually any form of economic development, led by a few who enjoy confrontation and media attention, he argues for greater balance and thoughtful work with leaders in business and government to develop and implement viable solutions to the complex needs of mankind and the environment we share.  We know what the activists oppose, but what do they propose?

The failure to actively develop and take advantage of new technologies can actually result in less ecologically sustainable and efficient use of natural resources, and it will predictably cost many lives and sustain needless suffering.  Inaction has serious consequences.

Foreign-Trade Zones ( FTZ )

Our directory of US Foreign Trade Zones may be of interest since they are often used by pharmaceutical, chemical, and other companies because of the tax incentives.

We are developing our own global directory of technology parks, business incubators, and cluster development initiatives to make them, and related economic development agencies, much easier for executives and their professional advisors to find quickly. It is not just the work of organized charities or governments to develop a better future for us all, starting today.  Our business is for profit, but also has a strong social purpose.
