Awards Ceremony & Meet the Finalists Webcast Series
The Xconomy Awards are a celebration of best the life sciences industry has to offer.
Tickets to both the online ceremony and the Meet the Finalists webcasts are complimentary, so register today to reserve your “seat at the table.” In lieu of charging registration fees, this year we are partnering with two wonderful charities that could use your support. Please donate if you are able:
Life Science Cares is a collective effort of the life science industry and works to help alleviate the impacts of poverty in Greater Boston and Philadelphia (and the West Coast in 2021). Your gift will benefit their network of 27 partner nonprofits working on the ground. Donate today.
Project Sunshine partners with 400+ medical facilities to support pediatric patients and provide increased opportunities for play and authentic engagement to reduce stress. Your gift is more important than ever during COVID-19, as children face isolation and lack of interaction with other patients and hospital staff. Donate today.
This year we received over 600 nominations across 10 award categories. Each nomination was carefully reviewed and ranked by the Xconomy editorial staff yielding 40 finalists. All the finalists have made unique, game-changing contributions that improve our ability to discover, develop, and deliver effective therapeutics and vaccines to those most in need.
The live 2020 National Xconomy Awards are Thursday, Sept. 24 from 3-5 p.m. ET (learn more about the awards). We hope you can join us as we celebrate the winners. It’s also a chance for industry friends, colleagues, and all attendees to catch up and network through our custom networking app that launches Monday, Sept. 8 (learn more about the app).
Meet the Finalists: Because the 2020 National Xconomy Awards ceremony will be virtual, we wanted to provide you a unique opportunity to get to know them all and what makes their work so exciting.
Starting on Sept. 8 and running through Sept. 23, at 11 a.m. ET each day, Xconomy invites you to meet the finalists for each award category with our 25-minute webcast series. Watch and listen to insightful interviews conducted by Xconomy’s editorial staff and find out for yourself why their work stands out.
Registration is complimentary and easy – just click on each webcast you are interested in and you’ll be provided a meeting invite and reminder via email. Each Meet the Finalists is on-demand, so you can watch at your convenience after they are released.
