Dave Conley, ACG senior consultant and founding partner, is moderating two sessions at the BioMarine Business Convention taking place in Nantes, France on Sept 7-9, 2011.
Wednesday Sept 7th is Discovery Day, a special networking event dedicated to investors, cluster representatives, government agencies, industry players and local government representatives. Two groups (one on marine renewable energies, one on marine bio-resources) will meet key players in Nantes & Saint-Nazaire to understand the very complex business ecosystem (marine protected areas nearby to industrial development zones). They will discover investment and development projects on marine renewable energies and marine bio-resources.
Thursday Sept 8th is a full day of panels, round tables and meetings on a wide variety of topics and issues, click here for details. The day will end with a BioMarineNetworking Dinner to provide participants with a chance to discuss what they have heard throughout the day and to make new connections.
Friday Sept 9th is another full day of panel discussions and one-to-one business meetings, click here for details. Capping off the day will be a unique event – the BioMarine Gala dinner to the benefit of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s projects on Marine Protected Areas.
Pierre Erwes and his team at BioTopics SAS, in collaboration with Atlanpole, have done a fantastic job of organizing what will be a showcase of marine bio-resource opportunities.
