VIRTUAL CONGRESS | PDT Timezone
27-29 July, 2020

Bringing to light new biocatalysts and molecules not found in nature for industrial applications. With the emergence of new techniques and methods to reconstruct and engineer enzymes, it is more exciting than ever to be working in the field of protein engineering, bringing to light new biocatalysts and molecules not found in nature for industrial applications.

“The global enzymes market was valued at $7,082 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $10,519 million in 2024, registering a CAGR of 5.7% from 2018 to 2024.”

Why Attend

Most enzymes found in nature are not suitable for industrial purposes. The field of protein and enzyme engineering is growing at a rapid rate, with competition within industries high and the need to optimize performance greater than ever. 

The virtual Protein Engineering Congress is dedicated to uncovering the new and emerging practices, techniques and methods of protein and enzyme engineering across industries.

With industry approaching the design, build, and generation of new biocatalysts and molecules not found in nature, come and learn from our line-up of leading speakers to get an update on the new technologies used in the field of strain and protein engineering.

The breadth of topics discussed at this meeting will focus in on directed evolution, computational protein design, synthetic biology and white biotechnology, and applications of enzyme and protein engineering and industrial biocatalysis in the biopharmaceutical, flavor & fragrance, cosmetics, and food industries.

Attend and you'll be able to:

  • Network with key opinion leaders and acquire new customers
  • Form collaborations with companies who are engineering proteins and enzymes
  • Meet with new technology partners to enhance internal R&D
  • Understand the new applications of engineered enzymes and learn how to scale-up to large industrial manufacture

Meet attendees from companies including:

High Quality Speakers – this doesn’t change, whether we run a live event or a virtual one, we recruit industry leading, insightful speakers to inspire.
More Networking Opportunities – do you sometimes miss the one person you were hoping to meet at live events? With virtual events you can instant message them, add time into their diary, and email them, making target lead gen easier than ever!
Get More Involved – virtual events offer many more interactive opportunities than live events; participate in live polls, live Q&A and live panel discussions – helping you build your personal brand and your business connections.
Save Time & Money – tune into an event from the comfort of your own home, no need to travel overseas, spend time away from loved ones and spend your company's money! This makes lead gen and knowledge sharing much more cost efficient.
Increased Content – we can run more sessions at one time without the constraints of venue capacities, meaning we can provide you with more valuable content in one go.
Diverse Branding Opportunities – for those looking to partner on the virtual events, there are lots of branding opportunities through different booth formats, banners, logo placement, thought leadership etc.
Insights – using analytics, we can help you benchmark and stay head of industry trends. We can  also share audience insights on job titles, seniority and geography of attendees, so you know this is the right event to match your business needs.

The Protein Engineering Congress USA is going virtual for 2020.

The global enzyme market is predicted to reach over $19 billion by 2025 due to cross-sector implementation of enzyme use, with the bio-pharmaceutical, agriculture, food ingredient, and flavor & fragrance industries accounting for the majority of this increase.

We are bringing together representatives from all industries to discuss how the global enzyme market is progressing and developments in the pipeline.

We are working with speakers to reconfirm their participation and will update the agenda accordingly within the next couple of weeks.
