What are the Festivals of Genomics?
The Festivals are the embodiment of our social mission; to bring the benefits of genomics to patients, faster. In order to achieve this, we aim to bring together people from academia, biopharma and healthcare to learn from each other on the latest updates and trends taking place in the genomics field. Joining together under one roof, the genomics community can listen to the same talks, discuss the same hurdles and see how each can help the other and the broader landscape of genomics as a whole.
What’s Coming Up Next?
Our flagship event once again will return to Boston on the 3-4 October 2017 for an even bigger and better Festival.
In 2016, our Boston Festival doubled in size in just about every way imaginable. There were more presentations, more new solutions sourced, more attendees and more to do on the show floor. The atmosphere was great. People learnt about new technologies, many shared ideas with each other, and others collaborated to come up with new ways to make a difference.
For 2017, we have taken that spark of excitement, nurtured it, built on it and now we are ready for round three!
As our Flagship event, The Festival of Genomics Boston provides a unique opportunity to meet with the whole of the genomics community, in an environment carefully constructed to facilitated networking, learning and business growth.
All of our Festivals have been designed to offer insights and value for the full breadth of the genomics community including people from academia, biopharma, healthcare institutions, investment firms, patient organisations, and solution providers.

A new addition to the Festivals which has been extremely popular is the Live Lounge area which includes lunchtime sessions such as hot panel discussions, book signings and short films to grab your interest whilst you have a bite to eat.
Lots more other features will be available onsite for you to get involved with across the two days at each one of our Festivals.
