Welcome to ALA's Biz-Dev Business Development Forum
Biz-Dev provides a dedicated time and place for laboratory automation user companies, technology providers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to explore business partnerships and collaborations.
In today's intense, economically stressed business climate, it is difficult for business and scientific leaders at well-established, large, small and start-up companies to find time to connect and cultivate strategic relationships. Biz-Dev is a uniquely focused and powerful tool that offers a time-efficient, cost-effective opportunity for high-caliber discussions and prospecting.
Registration for Biz-Dev is free. Register through the Scheduler and see who is participating, contact individuals via email, set and confirm meetings. Space and time slots for meetings are on a first-come, first-served basis.

"Today, we find ourselves in a transitional business climate emerging from economically stressed times. Intense competition and the need to innovate exists today as much as ever, but companies have streamlined and must focus on core opportunities. It is difficult for business and scientific leaders in large, small and start-up companies to find time to connect and cultivate strategic relationships. Now more than ever, there is a need for dedicated time and space away from the traditional exhibit floor for business development professionals and strategic managers to be able to sit down one-to-one and brainstorm potential partnering synergies and opportunities."
– Jay Smith, Chairman of the ALA Exhibitor Marketing Advisory Group and the ALA New Product Award (NPA) Designation Judges Panel
