Just a few of the comments from past conferences
“I really thought the interaction and engagement of the audience was strong. Innovation is a high motivator and getting senior leadership on board with it is critical and that seemed to be a clear theme at the conference.” Tim Moore , Executive Vice President, Technical Operations, Kite Pharma

“As biopharmaceutical process engineers-in-training at KGI, most of us are only exposed to the R&D, process development, quality and regulatory features of the industry. I’m sure that the other BSMA conference attendees in my cohort would agree that the experience has really opened our eyes to the supply chain aspect of the biotech industry. The supply chain was something we took for granted and therefore overlooked, but clearly it is one of the most important aspects of the industry. Simply put, the supply chain is the bridge to the people that the industry serves.” Swetha Prabhakaran, Master of Mechanical Engineering, Keck Graduate Institute


“I liked the flow of the conference and enjoyed my panel participation…probably my favorite topic yet.”  Paul Seaback , Vice President, Global Supply Chain,  Gilead Sciences

“The State of Logistics Report was outstanding and better than I have seen before. Your grasp of the subject and ability to identify the Hot Topics made it very informative and in some cases a welcome call to action.”  ~  Mark Buck , Global Supply Chain and Procurement Leader,  Bio-Rad Laboratories

I like the PLM material shipment relationship presentation most in the event; the keynotes and panels are very interactive, which give me good insights of Supply Chain from different perspectives, such as suppliers, vendors, and engineers”  ~  Susan Isbell  ( Merck )

“I too thought the conference was one of the best I have EVER been to! The conference was well organized, the speakers and their material were relevant, researched, and of importance to me, and many others with whom I spoke. There was an air off excitement, especially from the opening presentation by Ms. Cashin. Seeing former co-workers, clients, and a number of targeted clients, was money and time, well spent!“ Lawrence E. (Larry) Feirman  – Director, Client Solutions,  UTi

Congratulations on an exceptional meeting. You and your team have truly created a special high-quality industry event and I am very pleased to be associated with it. I look forward to working more closely with BSMA going forward.”  ~  Michelle Nemits , Director of Business Development, Biocom Purchasing Group,  BIOCOM
