Cambridge Healthtech Institute and Bio-IT World will again be recognizing and celebrating leaders in innovation through the following Awards Programs:
Innovative Practices Awards
The Innovative Practices Awards are designed to recognize partnerships and projects pushing our industry forward, striving to highlight strategies that can be widely shared and implemented across the industry to improve the quality, pace, and reach of our science. Winners will be announced in a plenary session at Bio-IT World Conference & Expo, Boston, April 21-23, 2020. The final deadline for entry is February 7, 2020.
The 2020 Best of Show Awards offer exhibitors of the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo an exclusive opportunity to distinguish and highlight their products ranging from an innovative application, technology, tool, or solution from the competition. Judged by a team of leading industry experts, and Bio-IT World editors, this program identifies exceptional innovation in technologies used by life science professionals today. Products considered are new products, or significant product upgrades, introduced between April 2019 and April 2020. Winners are judged based on the products’ technical merit, functionality, innovation, and in-person presentations to the judges at the show. Please note: Selection is NOT based upon level of sponsorship or exhibit participation.
