BioHorizon SC2 and KET-B Brokerage Event

Flash Presentations

The interest in holding a flash presentation at this year's brokerage event was greater than ever before and the task of selecting the successful candidates proved very difficult indeed. We would like to thank everyone who expressed an interest.

The flash presentation sessions took place between 11:00-12:00 on 3 July 2019. All three sessions were webstreamed and recorded. The slides of all flash presentations, even those not chosen due to a lack of available places, are now available to download below.
