LEVEL takes Tech Barcelona’s ecosystem to BIO Boston 2023

10 May 2023 TB news
  • Two Barcelona companies, winners of a draw organised by the airline and the association, will travel for free to the most important biotechnology event in the world, which is attended by more than 30 Catalan companies.
  • LEVEL and Tech Barcelona have an agreement to support the Catalan entrepreneurial network and bring it closer to the main technological hubs in the United States, which are, in turn, strategic destinations for the company.

Barcelona, 10 May 2023 – The BIO Boston 2023 convention (5-8 June), the most important conference in the international biotechnology sector, will be attended by Trifermed and Chasing Science, two Barcelona companies associated with Tech Barcelona, winners of a draw for two round-trip airline tickets to Boston. For this promotion, LEVEL and Tech Barcelona have counted with the collaboration of Biocat, an organization that promotes and accelerates the life sciences and health sector in Catalonia, and that leads the international action of more than 30 Catalan institutions and companies to Bio Boston 2023.

Thanks to LEVEL’s direct flight linking Barcelona and Boston, Barcelona’s long-haul airline will take these companies to the outstanding event on 4 and 5 June, strengthening ties with one of the world’s leading healthcare hubs. The main mission of the link between LEVEL and Tech Barcelona is to strengthen the internationalisation of the city’s technological ecosystem and facilitate connectivity with Boston, and one of its main conventions in the biotechnology sector is a great example of this.

The capital city of Massachusetts is a strategic destination on the East Coast of the United States for the airline, as well as for its partner Tech Barcelona, as it allows synergies to be generated in the fields of health, biology and technology. In fact, another example of the LEVEL partner’s commitment to biotechnology science is the new Pier07 building, specialised in the health sector and located in the heart of Barcelona, which has been in operation since February this year.

Ricard Falomir, Chief Digital & Operations of LEVEL: “As a long-haul airline based in Barcelona, we feel the responsibility to connect our city and support the business community in Barcelona, such as the one built by our partner Tech Barcelona. An event as important as Bio Boston is the ideal opportunity to strengthen ties with a strategic destination such as Boston, both for LEVEL and for Tech Barcelona”.

“Tech Barcelona is delighted to see our alliance with LEVEL facilitate the presence of technology and digital companies from Barcelona at BIO 2023 in Boston, one of the most important events in the biotech sector on a global scale, promoting the Barcelona brand as a technological, innovative and cutting-edge health city in a benchmark environment”, says Miquel Martí, CEO of Tech Barcelona. On this occasion, he adds, “we are especially excited that Chasing Science and Trifermed, members of the association with a presence at Pier07, have been the winners of the flight raffle, and will be able to accompany the thirty Catalan institutions and companies that will attend the conference together with Biocat”.
