Big Science Business Forum 2018
Join CERN at Europe’s new one-stop-shop on the Big Science market
More than 650 delegates from 25 countries, representing more than 250 businesses and organisations from the international Big Science landscape, have already registered for Big Science Business Forum 2018 (BSBF2018). As a key organiser, CERN will be present at BSBF2018, giving 19 presentations on various business areas on the Big Science market. With less than two months to go, interested is encouraged to sign up for BSBF2018 now.
CERN has joined forces with some of the world’s largest Big Science organisations (EMBL, ESA, ESO, ESRF, ESS, European XFEL, F4E, and ILL) to create BSBF2018. Together, we want to contribute to a stronger, more transparent and consolidated Big Science market in Europe for the benefit of both Big Science and businesses.
An additional eight other Big Science organisations (ALBA, DESY, ELI-NP, ENEA, MAX IV, SCK•CEN–MYRRHA, PSI and SKA) are BSBF2018 Affiliated Big Science organisations, increasing the current number of Big Science expert speakers to more than 100. BSBF2018 is the first time that 17 of the world’s largest Big Science organisations are united under one roof to present their future investments worth billions of euros and to meet the Big Science industry together.
Book exclusive1-1 meetings with CERN delegates
BSBF2018’s 1-1 meeting module was launched last week, in which you can book 1-1 business meetings with CERN delegates. Through the 1-1 meeting module you can send meeting requests and see, read and communicate with other delegates. It allows delegates to meet with potential or existing business partners and will ensure that delegates can plan and optimise their conference calendar and experience. See a list of our delegates here.

A few last calls from BSBF2018:
Sponsorships: With one Gold Sponsorship left, an interested business has a unique chance to secure a prime exhibition space. If you did not sign up for an exhibition space in time, this is your chance.
Conference Dinner: The conference dinner is almost sold out. Interested must sign up via the registration as soon as possible.
Site visit to ESS and MAX IV: More than 100 delegates have already signed up for the free-of-charge site visits to ESS and MAX IV in Lund, Sweden. If delegates want to secure a seat at a specific time slot, we encourage them to sign up now.
We hope to see you in Copenhagen 26-28 February 2018
