Pivotal Links – The Networking Event for the Research Reagents Sector

Now established as a global partnering event in the life science annual calendar the newly entitled Pivotal Networking Event, Pivotal Links, is unique in the market as it is the only business to business meeting dedicated specifically to life science reagents. Furthermore, the event is attended by some of the largest companies (Abcam, Medix Biochemica) in the industry from around the globe, with representation from the UK, America’s, Europe and Asia in June 2017.

The 2018 Pivotal Links is going to be a very special one as Pivotal Scientific celebrates its tenth anniversary. Therefore, our aim is to make this the largest event to date – taking place over two days it will enable greater networking opportunities including a dinner and drinks reception.

Event Start Date: 19/06/2018 – 14.00

Event End Date: 20/06/2018– 17.00

As the event has grown over the years, it has developed into a great opportunity for companies to liaise with:

  • Distributors
  • OEM Partners
  • Collaborators
  • Investors
  • Industry Experts
  • Industry affiliated businesses

In previous years our partnering event has been a one-day affair.  However, Pivotal Links 2018 will now cover two days giving our international attendees the chance to arrive in the afternoon of the first day. This will allow for ad hoc meetings to take place in the afternoon, facilitated by the Pivotal Scientific team. Therefore, in the evening of Day 1, a meal will be organised for the international travellers hosted by Pivotal Scientific. Registration for Day 2 will also open on this day.

Finally, day 2 will start at 10.00am and include several industry related presentations, which will be followed by open networking for the remainder of the day. Like Day 1, the Pivotal Scientific Limited team will be on-hand to help support introductions and networking on a one-to-one basis.

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.
