Advisory firm teams up with Biotech Showcase™ to host its China Partnering Forum, connecting US innovation with Chinese Capital


NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TPP Healthcare, a strategic advisory firm specializing in cross-border transactions between Western and Chinese healthcare companies, announces its China Partnering Forum on January 8–12, 2017, at Parc 55, San Francisco (in conjunction with Biotech Showcase and alongside JP Morgan Healthcare Week).

San Francisco will be the center of biopharma innovation and investment due to the Biotech Showcase, the leading biotech investor event of the year produced by Demy-Colton and EBD Group. Over 3,000 delegates are expected to attend the event, considered to be a critical strategic gathering for the industry’s most innovative biotech companies to connect with global life science decision makers and investors from across the drug development ecosystem.

This year, as a first-of-its-kind event, TPP Healthcare China Partnering Forum attendees can expect access to 100s of pre-screened top public and private Chinese investment firms and healthcare companies interested in meeting with North American biotechnology and life science companies to discuss cooperation and business development interests. On Sunday, January 8, the Forum will host educational panels that address the Chinese healthcare market, conducting business with Chinese investors and healthcare companies, regulatory and clinical requirements, law and IP and more. From January 9 – 12, selected US companies will be invited to discuss their technology innovations and business development interests with Chinese investors and healthcare companies. Additionally, for the Chinese investors and healthcare professionals in the TPP network who cannot come to San Francisco, the entire week will be live-streamed to 10k+ Chinese healthcare professionals who wish to virtually attend.

Tony Chu, TPP co-founder and managing partner, comments, “Now is the best time to engage Chinese capital. In 2015, our similar forum successfully drew in over 400 investors and healthcare professionals from US and China. With China now being the second largest pharma market in the world, we are receiving an unpreceded level of request for innovative technologies and products from Chinese investors this year. Join us as we share our network’s company showcases, educational panels and one-on-one investor meetings in a dedicated, reserved space to facilitate long-term profitable partnerships.”
