ILSI-Biomed Israel 2008:
TEL AVIV, Israel - (Business Wire) ILSI-Biomed 2008 to be held May 27-29 in Tel Aviv, Israel, is an international convention hosting world renowned experts, academic luminaries, Israeli companies and an exhibition encompassing the hottest, most recent medical innovations. This year Israel is celebrating its 60th anniversary providing ILSI-Biomed an opportunity to illuminate 70 of the most advanced Israeli startup companies. Biomed week is projected to attract over 6,000 CEOs and senior professionals from Medical Device and Bio-Pharma companies, scientists and researchers, venture capitalists, and angel investors from Israel and abroad.
The conference agenda highlights the opportunities and challenges faced by the world’s healthcare industry, regulatory aspects and reimbursement issues worldwide, emerging trends and new therapies. The conference will provide a great platform for networking and one-on-one meetings.
Two parallel events will be held that same week: The second International Stem Cell Meeting, and ISRACAS 2008, the 11th Israel symposium on computer-aided surgery, medical robotics and medical imaging.
Co-Chairpersons of the organizing committee are: Ms. Ruti Alon, general partner at Pitango Venture Capital and chairperson of ILSI (Israel Life Science Industry), which she founded in 2005, and Israel Makov, former President and CEO of TEVA, one of Israel's prominent business leaders and a pioneer in the Israeli Biotechnology industry, today serving as Chairman at Given Imaging, a leading medical equipment developer.
According to Ms. Ruti Alon, "One of our major goals is to attract to international and Israeli investors, business development managers and delegations from the USA, Europe and the Far East. Therefore, we chose to introduce Israel's hottest, most mature startups, already in clinical studies or revenue generating stages." Mr. Israel Makov sums up: "I believe that the new technologies and the interactions between the companies and the thousands of attendees -- venture capital and angel investors -- will further leverage the Israeli Biomed industry."
"It is the greatest annual event of the local Biomed industry, and one of the major events in the world today. It is a great opportunity to demonstrate the innovative and advanced technology we have here, as well as form new and exciting business alliances," says Moshe Lilos, Managing Director of Kenes Exhibitions, the conference and exhibition organizers.
