Say About Last Year's Conference?
|"I was very impressed by the SoCalBio
Conference in many ways. First, it was a well- organized and seamless process. I enjoyed the location, the concurrent sessions and the food. More importantly, I liked the select group of professionals, and the companies lined up. It was a great experience and a helpful seminar for

"It was my pleasure to participate in this year's conference. Overall, I was very pleasantly impressed with the conference. The
attendees were a good mix of bio and life-science business folks and service providers. I met lots of people who were either potential clients
or referral sources. I was surprised how many attendees I already knew-- which made the conference more enjoyable. The
sessions that I attended ran smoothly, with good audience attendance and participation."
