Who We Are?

Biotech Connect (BTC) was created by young professional scientists to provide life science vendor shows, and technology seminars to academic and hospital based research centers across Canada.

BTC founders have many years of experience working as researchers in academia and the biotech industry. As scientists, we understand the needs of researchers and we are able to provide the personal knowledge needed to promote informative, customized and rewarding scientific trade shows.

BTC’s mission is to CONNECT scientific researchers and life science vendors and bring them together in a place and at a time that is convenient for all involved parties. We know from experience that Biotech Connect vendors and research scientists must get together in order to learn about the latest developments in laboratory products and equipment. BTC creates the perfect environment for this to happen on-campus with the advantage of researchers not having to leave their research facility.
