The event will include technical sessions, policy dialogues, startup pavilions, B2B meetings, and a mega biotech exhibition by startups, SMEs, large companies, bioincubators, and bio-services​​.

Biomanufacturing is identified as a priority area, encompassing sectors such as 2G ethanol, bio-gas, enzymes, smart proteins, cell and gene therapy, vaccines, diagnostics, and other biologics for human, plant, and veterinary applications.
