Nordic Life Science Days is the largest Nordic partnering conference dedicated to the life science industry. The event it is a unique place to do business.
"I think that this way of working is just as unique as it is effective."

The background to the initiative Nordic Life Science Days – NLSDays – is the fact that young and especially small life science companies rarely participate in major conferences or fairs. The explanations are not only financial resources but also time and perhaps natural lack of contacts during start-up phase.
– We realized there was a clear need to create a professional effective platform to find partnerships for these companies, says Olivier Duchamp, Chairman and CEO of Bionordic.

Bionordic is a full service global event management company that designs, plans and produces conferences and corporate events.

In 2013 Bionordic together with Sweden BIO – the official Trade organization for the Swedish Life Science Industry – arranged the NLSDays for the first time. The event took place in Stockholm.
– The positive response was clear. Our new way of organizing business meetings in an extremely efficient manner was well received by the participants.

After four years in Stockholm, NLSDays was moved to Malmö Convention Center where this year's edition will take place.
– The idea of origin is that it would be a Nordic event and it felt logical to place NLSDays once in the Öresund-region, which is a hot Life Science cluster.

NLSDays take place for three days in September, but much of the partakers' participation starts well before then. Bionordic provides an online partnering platform where participants fill-up a personal and company profile.
– Registered participants can use the on-line tool to book private meetings in advance with all other participants, sponsors and exhibitors.

Together with exhibitions, lectures and opportunities for mingling, it facilitates all partakers to network and create contacts on their own terms.
– I think that this way of working is just as unique as it is effective, says Olivier Duchamp.

A proof for the success is that the interest for the event remains high. Every year NLSDays gather some 1 200–1 300 participants mostly from Nordic countries – which is the main target group.
– But it is obvious that the interest from Europe, China, Japan, Canada and USA is increasing. I see it as proof for that we have created a spot to connect to the best of companies in the growing Nordic Life Science ecosystem.
