As new members of Medilink East Midlands, the V Formation team were delighted to exhibit at the annual Innovation Day, held on 8th June at The Nottingham Belfry.
Since its launch, the Medilink Innovation Day has fast become a ‘must-attend’ event for innovative life sciences and related businesses within the East Midlands. At this year’s event, well-known science writer and broadcaster, Vivienne Parry OBE, gave an introductory talk on the importance of the region’s contribution to the UK’s life sciences industry. Vivienne also highlighted the importance of collaboration between companies offering end-to-end solutions to the sector and the need for science to be explained in a common language – an area where clients regularly turn to V Formation for our expertise!
During the day we heard from a number of other interesting organisations, including the Chief Exec of Innovate UK and the CEO and Founder of PatientView. There were also plenty of networking opportunities and it was great to introduce ourselves and meet some new businesses in the sector, as well as catch up with many of our clients.
Innovation Day success for V Formation marketing client
Innovation Day 2016 concluded with a gala dinner and business awards ceremony and we were thrilled for V Formation client, XenoGesis, which won the Outstanding Achievement award, thanks to the fast growth of the company since its launch in 2011. Based at Biocity Nottingham, XenoGesis has now secured a spot at the Medilink UK National Awards that will be held later this year.
All-in-all, Innovation Day 2016 was a great success and we look forward to next year’s event – congratulations to the team at Medilink East Midlands.
