Held in a hybrid format, around 1,500 people from 30 countries attended the conference and other onsite events while the in-person exhibition saw more than 100,000 people in attendance.

BIO Asia–Taiwan's recent success is a testament to the robust growth of the country's biomedical sector. With its theme "Connecting the Asian Value Chain," the event provided a platform for the global biotech community to link into Asian supply chains.

We aim to cement Taiwan's role as an essential player in the international value chain."

More than 100 local and foreign experts spoke at 22 conference sessions. Co-organisers of the conference were PwC Taiwan, Taiwania Capital, the Development Center for Biotechnology (DCB), the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), the Ministry of Health and Welfare, Academia Sinica, Taipei Medical University, EirGenix, Formosa Laboratories, Quanta Computer, the Taiwan Digital Health Industry Development Association, and the Precision Medicine Industry Association of Taiwan.
