Our annual networking event has grown since its conception in 2010 and is now a unique global partnering event in the life science annual calendar. The next Pivotal Links event will take place over 2 days in June 2020 and will be located in Oxford, UK.

Pivotal Links is the only business to business meeting dedicated specifically to life science reagents. The event attracts attendees from the UK, America, Europe and Asia, who all attend with the purpose of making connections and facilitating mutual business growth. Pivotal Links 2020 will be a two-day event giving our attendees even more networking opportunities:

Day 1 will allow time for ad-hoc meetings facilitated by the Pivotal Scientific team. In the evening of Day 1, a meal will be organised allowing for relaxed, informal networking and a chance to meet the Pivotal Scientific team.

Day 2 will include several industry related presentations, which will be followed by open networking for the remainder of the day. Like day 1, the Pivotal Scientific team will be on-hand to help support introductions and networking.

To make your networking more effective on day 2 we are introducing a half hour slot allocation system. To help with this we are giving the opportunity for you to buy a fixed table at the event so you can arrange your meetings at your location as well as having room to advertise.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to our event!



The Pivotal Scientific network is a great platform for interactions within biotech industry with an emphasis on independent companies that like to collaborate and exchange experience. We have had the privilege to give a presentation at the Pivotal Scientific Networking event regarding our contract manufacturing and research services. The possibility to do this in a short (5-minute) pitch form enabled us to present our core expertise and added value. The presentation was immediately followed by a couple of service requests by start-up and scale-up companies at the networking part of this event. This was followed by a couple of contract services and indirect new requests via customers.
