Conference organizer, Bio Supply Management Alliance (BSMA), was born out of a need to create a worldwide community of operations and supply chain management leaders and professionals in the biotech, biopharma, and biomedical device industries. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, home to more than 400 bio firms, the alliance provides a forum for collaboration, learning and best practice sharing of practitioners, executives and thought leaders in these uniquely demanding industries. This year's conference is incorporating a town hall environment to promote shared learning and collaboration.
