Annual Events & Other Activities
BioAlberta's annual AGM and Awards Gala
Our annual gala is held to network and celebrate outstanding achievements within the industry. This premier event brings together the membership and friends of the industry to honour achievement and celebrate the industry’s milestones. It is always an enjoyable and memorable evening, and the successes in our industry are acknowledged by presenting awards for: " Company of the Year" and "Scientific Achievement and Innovation".
Scientific Achievement and Innovation
The Alberta Bioindustry Hall of Fame, established in 2006, recognizes people who have demonstrated leadership in the industry and made extensive and tangible contributions to the Alberta and Canadian life science community. Individuals are publicly recognized and inducted during the annual gala.
Global Biotech Week (GBW)
Canada was the first country to originate a National Biotech Week back in 2003. A uniquely Canadian concept, began as a modest advocacy and awareness string of events with provincial partners, gathered momentum and has snowballed into a Global Biotech Week success story!
The purpose of Global Biotech Week is to raise awareness of the industry and its global potential among policymakers, policy influencers and the general public more broadly. One week in September is dedicated to celebrating the growth of the life sciences industry and to promote its significance to our everyday life every where in the world. A variety of networking events and promotional activities take place throughout the week.
Alberta's Presence at the BIO International Convention
Every year, BioAlberta unites industry participation under one banner to position Alberta as a significant life science cluster in the global marketplace. We coordinate all promotional activities.
