As you may have noticed we have changed our name, and so for 2017 we would like to welcome you to the World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress! But let’s look back at where it all started. 2005 – What a year! London was overjoyed at being elected as host city for the 2012 Olympics, but also devastated by the July 7th terror attacks. The death of Pope John Paul II, that same year, marked the end of an era in the life of the Roman-Catholic Church whilst in Germany, Angela Merkel becomes their first female Chancellor. 2005 also played host to Hurricane Katrina in the United States when it flooded New Orleans, the launch of YouTube and it is where Terrapinn’s stem cell story starts.
Roll on 12 years, and I’m sure you’ll all agree the industry has transformed and developed beyond belief in that time. The Terrapinn Congress has always remained a constant and the rebrand merely strengthens that. We are still one of the leading stem cells conferences on the calendar, but we are also now serving the cell and gene therapy communities, as well as the tissue engineering and organ regeneration sectors too. For 2017, we have expanded the programme, become more inclusive in the topic areas covered but don’t be under any illusion that this will affect the high-quality networking and industry- and thought-leading speakers we know you have been used to over the last
12 years ago when we launched the World Stem Cells Congress, the stem cells sector was one of scientific interest. Focussing on the challenges of how to transform the cells, this conference and exhibition was quite small and the topic area quite niche. Attracting only around 80 people, word of the industry’s potential had not yet reached the masses.
The World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress, alongside the co-located 2nd annual World Precision Medicine Congress and 3rd annual Cord Blood World Europe, will welcome 250+ speakers across the 3 days enabling networking opportunities with over 1000 leading industry professionals. With that in mind, we look forward to welcoming you to London in May 2017: 17th – 19th!
