New York's Biofabricate summit is coming to London!  

 

In the heart of Soho, you'll experience a day packed with the latest disruptive research and companies growing the materials of the future. Our event is the leading platform for the emerging consumer biotech industry to provide updates, unveil prototypes, and launch new products.  

LIFT OFF!

#Innovation isn’t easy. Material innovation is particularly challenging. But when the tools and processes involve LIFE itself as our starting point we need to understand we’re operating in a whole new world of scientific and design endeavour.

 

Excitingly, the hard work is beginning to pay off. We’re starting to see the first #biofabricated materials come to market. We’ll be showcasing some of those #materials and products, the innovators and brands behind them, and learning how they overcame challenges to pioneer the emergence of a new #materialrevolution.

 

For our first summit in Europe we’ll be digging deep into the world of ‘bio’ as it relates to consumer products. You’ll learn from our on-stage experts, from the latest examples in our Design Lab, and via special exhibits. Join an international array of #biotech #startups and consumer brands from #fashion, #footwear, #luxury and #construction as they share their journeys.
