Why attend?

The main goal of the Festival is to build the world’s best and most innovative genomics and biodata event that is also free to attend for most. Why? The more people we bring together to discover solutions, share ideas and make new connections, the more patients ultimately benefit.

Free for over 90% of attendees. If you work exclusively for a research institution, university, registered charity, pharmaceutical company (with an existing drug pipeline), payor, hospital, clinic or governmental body the Festival is free for you to attend.

All in one space. Everything happening in one room (bar the occasional workshop or theatre), bringing together stakeholders to promote dialogue and learning.

An online Festival community platform to help you interact with other attendees, before, during and after the event.

Don’t miss a thing. You can only be in one theatre at any time. So, all attendees get digital access to recordings from over 90% of sessions from all theatres, around two weeks after the Festival takes place.

Bringing people together. Breaking down silos by bringing together people from research, clinical, pharma, diagnostics, technology, government, investment and patient organizations.

Live music and entertainment throughout the event, plus the "Festival at Night."

Packed with excitement. An exciting and engaging Festival show floor, with permanent and pop-up features designed to inspire and energize you.

Unique insights and intelligence for those already embedded in genomics and related fields.

Incredible sessions. Exciting keynote presentations, showstopping panel discussions, 7 theatres of insightful talks covering a huge range of topics, plus round table discussions and speed networking.

Beyond genomics. A bigger focus on multi-omics, and advances in other “omics” technologies.

Supporting new entrants. A Start-Up Zone to help bring new technologies and ideas to attendees, as well as sessions led by young scientists.
