About the Iowa Biotech Showcase & Conference
The Iowa Biotech Showcase & Conference (IBSC) is an annual conference hosted by IowaBio bringing together innovators, biotech leaders, investors, and support vendors from across Iowa for industry-specific programming and networking opportunities.
The 2024 IBSC aims to provide a platform for highlighting the richness of Iowa's biotech ecosystem. Rather than focusing on a specific theme, our goal is to embrace the entirety of biotech industries within the state, spanning healthcare, agriculture, biofuels and sustainable aviation fuels, environmental science, genetics, and more. We believe by celebrating this diversity, we will foster collaboration, inspire innovation, and contribute to the growth of the biotech sector in Iowa.
Highlights of the IBSC:
- Biotech showcase pitch competition
- Educational industry presentations
- Industry-focused legislative update
- Plenary keynote
- Biotech Leader of the Year award presentation
- Networking reception
