Why Boston

Arena International has a strong connection with the biotech hub of Boston-Cambridge, staging 3 annual events in the area given the thrilling scene of companies which make this area a hot bed of R&D discovery.

Boston and Cambridge are firmly situated as leading both biotech hubs in the life science industry across the USA. Much alike The Bay area, Boston is home to a robust population of small start-ups, large well-established pharmaceuticals, incubator sites, and large biotech-focused research institutions. Companies such as Sanofi, Pfizer, Biogen and Novartis have a substantial foothold in the region. Meanwhile, in 2017 the number of life sciences industry jobs in Massachusetts surpassed 70,000 for the first time ever. That represents a substantial escalation of the industry’s economic reach, which had already been building up momentum.

According to the City of Boston Mayors office, Boston has received the most N.I.H. funding of any U.S. city for 21 consecutive years and boasts over 120 Health IT and Digital Health companies which enable it to attract talent and boosts its position and the leading hub in the US alongside San Francisco.
