The 2024 edition of Pitch Perfect and Boost the European Bioeconomy will take place at Sheraton Brussels Airport, on Tuesday December 3rd (Pre-Conference Programme on December 2nd) .

We aim at matching the overwhelming success of the September 2023 edition (330+ participants, 96 top-notch pitches and 500+ B2B meetings) while continuing our efforts to improve participant experience.

What will be different for the 2024 edition?  

  • A Pre-Conference Programme on December 2nd (6-10pm) featuring keynotes and a networking dinner.
    • Why? To create more time for networking during the pre-conference and more time for matchmaking during the intense pitching & matchmaking day.
    • YES, one can register for only one or both days!
  • A new matchmaking tool (SWAPCARD) that makes it even easier to plan, follow up on your busy day schedule and to keep track of your leads.
  • A Dedicated INVESTORS webpage on the event website: to make the many investors attending (Angels, VCs, Funds, Corporates…) more visible.  The current list of 20 investors is not the complete list. We aim to welcome 40+ investors at our event, so keep an eye on this page!
