  ****************************************************************

In co-operation with the Institute of Microbiology of the 
Heinrich-Heine-Universitaet Duesseldorf (Germany) and the Messe Duesseldorf 
we organize the BIOTEC 94 Forum of Biotechnology, which takes place 
parallel with the MEDICA Fair, one of the world's largest fairs in the 
field of medicine.

The International Forum of Biotechnology BIOTEC 94 offers you an ideal 
platform for presenting your state-of-the-art innovations in the field of 
research and development in industry and higher education. In addition to 
the scientific BIOTEC Congress we give you the opportunity to present your 
products, services and developments within the framework of the BIOTEC 
Special Exhibition.

Thanks to its links with the MEDICA and an expected number of about 100,000 
visitors, the BIOTEC Special Exhibition promises to generate widespread 
interest. Additionally you can take part in the Technology Forum, which 
opens the way to communication with scientists, practitioners, politicians 
and the industry.
