Fri. 20 October 2017, 6:00 pm – 11:30 pm AEST
The Life Sciences Queensland Globally Engaging Networking Event (GENE) will be held on the Friday 20th October 2017, following The Australasian Bioenergy and Bioproducts Symposium (TABBS) at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Australia.
GENE is a prestigious event attended by many in the industry - bringing together a number of key Australian, North American, European, Asian and Canadian Life Sciences Leaders, for an evening of networking and entertainment. The event has enjoyed growing success since its inception in 2009, and promises to be an engaging celebration of the life sciences industry, locally and abroad, in 2017.
GENE will feature the presentation of three key industry Awards - the McCullough Robertson LSQ Industry Excellence Award, the LSQ Elected Official Award and the LSQ Trade Commissioner Award.
The event will also feature the presentation of the Rose-Anne Kelso Commemorative Award to recognise an individual female’s endeavors and passion and dedication to the health and life sciences industry.
All awards will open for nomination soon, see details below.
