While there are many exciting cell and gene therapy events each year, there are invariably a few that stand out from the crowd. One of these events is the World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress, an exhibition and conference that has grown to become one of the best and most established cell and gene events in the world today.
Held in London, UK, from May 15-17, the 2019 edition will be in its 14th year. Year after year, the event has continued to grow and attract a large audience of biotech, pharma, start-ups, investors, research and technology companies from around the world.
This year, the event will host over 1000 attendees, 250 speakers, 80 exhibition booths, and over 500 different global companies.

Main Conference Days on May 16th-17th
There will be more interactive panel discussions, roundtables and networking opportunities than in any previous year. The targeted tracks held this day will be divided into specific therapy areas, including:
- Cell therapy
- Gene therapy
- Tissue engineering
- Cord blood and tissue
There will also be focused tracks covering bioprocessing for cell and gene therapy, clinical trials, regulation, pricing and market access, as well as a new “pitch and partner” session featuring company presentations.
Attend World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress 2019
Advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) are defined as “medicines for human use that are based on genes, tissues or cells.” They are a new class of therapeutics that are regulated by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Similarly, regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research which deals with the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function”.
As emerging areas of medicine, stakeholders in the field are creating history by bringing products through development, into preclinical testing, and introducing them into the clinical realm. This event is your opportunity to connect with other stakeholders to advance the field.
