This comprehensive Life Sciences Expo 2018 will have an estimated 500 attendees from Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island and will showcase the exciting growth and diversity of the life sciences in Rhode Island and Southeastern New England.


The Expo will be held on Wednesday, April 4th 2018 from 9 am – 6 pm at the Omni Hotel Providence.




Companies and entrepreneurs on the cutting edge of biotechnology, neuroscience, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, diagnostics and more will present their exciting work, growth potential, and why they enjoy living and working here.



We invite you to become a sponsor of this important event. Sponsoring MedMates’ Life Sciences Expo 2018 demonstrates your active support for the growth of our regional life sciences economy. Also, if your organization is either directly involved in the life sciences (biotechnology, neuroscience, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, diagnostics, etc.) or you offer professional services to life science companies, sponsorship promotes your active role in our dynamic ecosystem.


Two kinds of sponsorship packages are available:

  • Medallion Sponsorships - Platinum, Gold and Silver
  • Program Segment Sponsorships - Key program segments such as a speaker or panel

Detailed information about each of our sponsorship packages can be found below.
