Halifax welcomes the 4th BioMarine™ Business Convention from September 9 – 12, 2013. Co-organized with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), the convention brings together international business leaders, government representatives, scientists, academics and civil society communities to discover and share innovative solutions for advancing economic development of bio-marine business sectors. The developing program proposes business-to-business (B2B) meetings, several networking sessions, a trade show and two full days of presentations. The convention’s format is designed to encourage discussions and the sharing of information about sustainable business opportunities in marine biotechnologies, aquaculture and aquafeed, and marine natural products.
