As businesses and research in the Wisconsin biohealth industry grow more rapidly than ever before, so does the industry’s impact. Wisconsin’s biohealth industry is not only enriching lives through medical innovations but the industry and Wisconsin’s research institutions are also impacting our state’s economy.

In Madison on October 9th, Biohealth Summit attendees will have the unique opportunity to get an exclusive look at the latest Wisconsin Biohealth Industry Economic Impact Study that will be released the day of the event. BioForward’s updated study will highlight new insights including data on expansions, our industry’s manufacturing supply chain, and the substantial economic impact this industry has on the state’s economy from jobs, high wages, taxes and economic output.

At an afternoon breakout session, you’ll get to hear local Wisconsin industry leaders from organizations including Catalent Pharma Solutions, Plexus, Promega, Titan Spine and AbbVie talk through the newly released Wisconsin Biohealth Economic Impact Study data. Topics will include analyzing and interpreting the Study’s findings and how can we build upon our success to attract the talent needed to support our industry’s long term growth and further increasing our economic impact to the state of Wisconsin. Panelists will also give their insight on how well we are translating innovation to commercial applications, collaborations between Wisconsin’s manufacturing supply chain and our biohealth companies and where the future of Wisconsin’s biohealth industry is heading.

Don’t miss your chance to attend the 2018 Wisconsin Biohealth Summit, where you’ll get a firsthand look at the latest Wisconsin Biohealth Economic Impact Report and hear from local leaders on what this means for our state and industry.
