"I found it a very useful event and look forward to attending again next year."
Dr Kaasim Mahmood, Advent Venture Partners 

 “Both the investor dinner and BioTrinity were very good.  Great atmosphere that was very conducive to networking at the dinner.  And the meeting itself was well organized, with a well-structured venue that enabled easy oscillation between plenary sessions and one-on-ones with companies.”

Graham E Fagg, Partner, Seroba Kernel Life Sciences (Ireland’s largest VC)

Most of the delegates were searching for networking opportunities and OBN provided many different opportunities to make this happen from the relaxed environment of the drinks reception, to the gala dinner and the buffet lunches at the conference.
