PiVOT shines at BIO Asia-Taiwan 2023 Conference, Proudly Showcasing the Philippines

The threat brought by Typhoon Doksuri (known in the Philippines as Typhoon Egay) did not dissuade the 1,500 participants, including PiVOT, the largest and fastest-growing Philippine Contract Research Organization (CRO), from attending and sponsoring The BIO Asia-Taiwan 2023 Conference. Despite the challenging weather conditions, the conference saw an impressive turnout, with approximately 35 per cent of attendees being foreign participants. With over 5,500 one-on-one business matching requests, the event proved to be a significant platform for networking and collaboration.
