2024 is primed to be a critical year for life science real estate as the life sciences/healthcare and tech continue to grow despite a deceleration in economic investment in 2023. As we exit the years of pandemic-driven investments and subsequent inflation, all eyes are turned to see if life science real estate will maintain its strong investment performance, and to understand which economic factors will open the door to new opportunities for life science financing, development, and expansion.

Join Philadelphia Builds Bio+ for an important year in review and 2024 Life Science Economic Outlook discussing:

  • The 2024 national economic outlook and how it will impact life sciences at the national, regional, and local levels
  • The key factors behind life science supply and demand as we exit the pandemic-era
  • The pivotal role that biotech and life sciences are playing in unleashing deal flow and economic opportunity in Philadelphia
  • How firms are accessing venture capital to strengthen Philadelphia’s life science ecosystem

This event promises an evening of meaningful conversations, networking, and reflections on the milestones of 2023 and what’s ahead for 2024. CYTO|PHL’s unique atmosphere provides the perfect backdrop for fostering new connections and strengthening existing ones within the life sciences community.
