Cancellation due to Covid-19 situation


Unfortunately, the global Coronavirus situation has now also affected the Swiss Biotech Day 2020.

The Swiss Federal Authorities have declared a ban on events with more than 100 people taking place in Switzerland until April 30, 2020.

We are very sorry that our industry event cannot take place as planned and thank all our partners, supporters, and participants for your understanding. All registration fees will be fully reimbursed.

Together with our stakeholders, we will now evaluate options to organize the Swiss Biotech Day at a later stage this year and will inform before the end of March, either directly or via this website.
