SynBioBeta Global Synthetic Biology Conference Registration Open

SynBioBeta announces event dates, keynotes, sponsors, and location

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anticipation and excitement builds for the 2023 SynBioBeta Global Synthetic Biology Conference with global innovation network SynBioBeta announcing today event dates, keynotes, sponsors, and conference location.

Set to be the largest synthetic biology industry event to date, the 2023 SynBioBeta Global Synthetic Biology Conference is host to a worldwide network of biological engineers, innovators, scientists, and entrepreneurs building a more sustainable world.

The event marks an especially critical period where the global synthetic biology market is making giant strides. This includes billions of dollars of new investment activity, rising demand for bio-based products and strong policy tailwinds from the Biden-Harris administration in support of a US-led global bioeconomy.

According to SynBioBeta CEO and Founder Dr. John Cumbers, “The synthetic biology industry is at the forefront of the next manufacturing revolution focused on reading, writing, and editing DNA and designing, building, and testing biological systems inside of living cells. This year’s conference is the place where attendees will gain firsthand insight into state-of-the-art biotechnologies that are driving market adoption and growth of the bioeconomy.”

The global bioeconomy is growing at more than 13% year over year, accounting for almost $1 trillion of U.S. GDP. In 2020, a McKinsey report showed that 60% of global manufacturing inputs can be made with biology and predictions for the future global annual market could be as high as $30 trillion according to a report by Schmidt Futures. The industry is creating hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs and has the potential to create millions more by onshoring global supply chains and converting to sustainable biomanufacturing.

“The SynBioBeta Global Synthetic Biology Conference is recognized as the premiere industry event. Here the world's most influential synthetic biology, bioengineering and technology innovators convene with colleagues, customers, investors, policymakers and media to collaborate and learn about emerging global trends, what's next and how the world is using biology to transform how we fuel, heal, and feed our world,” continued Dr. John Cumbers. “This year’s event is surpassing all participation expectations and we are excited to welcome those invested in the future of synthetic biology to this global event.”

Dr. Cumbers continued, “We are excited to share that Thomas Middleditch, star of the critically acclaimed HBO series “Silicon Valley”, turned climate investor, will be speaking at SynBioBeta this year with Seth Bannon, Founder of venture capital firm Fifty Years, about his passion for climate tech investing. Additionally we are honored to have Chi Onwurah, UK Shadow Minister for Science Research and Innovation presenting at this year’s conference.” CEO and founder Mark Kotter continued, “SynBioBeta is such an inspiring community. This event is where you see the frontiers of science and innovation come to life to solve the biggest challenges in human health and for our planet.”
