TVG Network, based in Santa Cruz, CA, has been producing the longest running bio partnering conference in Europe. This year, with the encouragement of the European Commission, the show has been renamed "Biopartnering Future Europe (BPFE)" to reference the Commission's goal of creating a knowledge-based economy in Europe. The show has also been moved this year from London to the more centrally located Brussels, Belgium, capital of the European Union. It takes place October 7-9, 2013.
Robert previews the show and explains why biotech companies want to participate. He says that "face to face meetings are still the number one way to get business done."
Joining Robert in his home garden, we ask him about his journey from history of science teacher in Cambridge, England to producing global conferences from Santa Cruz, CA.
