Our chemistry team attended the ChemBio 2019 – event on 27. – 28.3.2019 in the Helsinki Fair Center as an exhibitor. ChemBio is the biggest meeting place for experts in the chemical and bio fields with over 4000 attendants and over 140 exhibitors. The event has a lot of interesting program and seminars on current topics.
This year, ChemBio’s absolute attraction was the panel discussion of three nobelists on science, its future and its role in society. Barry Sharpless, Ada Yonath and Fraser Stoddart took part in the panel discussion which was led by Professor Ari Koskinen.
Other interesting seminar topics were for example “Future of food – what will we eat in the future” and “Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence – an unbeatable combination”, so the topics were sure to suit everyone’s taste. The exhibitors were also quite versatile from the field of chemistry and biotechnology all the way from different service providers to laboratory equipment manufacturers. By studying the area of the event, it was easy to get an idea of what is going on currently in the field of chemistry and biotechnology and in what direction development is going. In addition to the seminars and the exhibition event, ChemBio offered an excellent opportunity for networking, as there were plenty of visitors from all over Finland and abroad.
For the first time, Laine IP took part in the ChemBio event and the timing was excellent for the introduction of our new brand. At our stand, we had some of our client’s products, which we have helped protect, on display for the visitors to see. Inspired by concrete examples, patenting and trademark protection sparked brilliant questions from the event visitors for our experts to answer.
If you did not get to ChemBio this time, the next opportunity will be in April 2021, when it will be held together with the PulPaper event and the Helsinki Chemicals Forum. So the event is becoming even more versatile and interesting. See you at the fair!
