This year we counted 500 participants and 15 speakers. It was fully booked in the exhibition section and intensive networking. We asked some participants: What did you get out of Park Annual?
“For me, Park Annual was a regional event that held international level. It gave us scope in new segments that we look forward to becoming a part of. Ulrika Kjellberg, CEO, Appva.
– Enjoyed visiting exhibitor booths and meeting colleagues as much as listening to exciting speakers. Great that Arvid could join and award the the prize, Arvid Carlsson Award by Sahlgrenska Science Park. See you next year! Tobias Kisker, CEO, Calmino Group.
“I was given the opportunity to highlight a major social challenge and how we solve it for a variety of people with different backgrounds. We immediately received suggestions for possible collaborations, advice and contact with investors. Häni Ashkar, CEO of Daqarta.
– Thank you very much for a great meeting! Well arranged and nice! Very useful, we think from Crowd Ideas, to gather parties from the academy, university and life science industry for a day under one roof. Many interactions with great interest in our joint project Crowd Ideas with the patient in the center. Really great fun! Åse Rosenqvist, Market Access, Novartis Sweden.
– For SwedenBIO, Park Annual is an excellent networking opportunity and one of the few external meetings that the entire secretariat participates in. We think the theme of the future and the message “together” was “spot on”. Sweden is far too small to compete regionally and we have to work a lot more together for life science in Sweden! Nicole Hanzon, Project Manager, Sweden BIO.
