Bioscience leader believes World Stem Cell Summit will return to San Antonio
December 5, 2014

By W. Scott Bailey, San Antonio Business Journal

San Antonio may not have to wait another decade to host its second World Stem Cell Summit. Alamo City leaders believe they have provided a popular home for the global conference.

"I am very pleased," said BioMed SA's Ken Trevett, when I asked him for an analysis of the summit on day two.

"From everything I understand, the connections are happening at the scientist to scientist level, at the venture capital level. I'm very pleased."

San Antonio waited 10 years to land the summit. It might not have to wait so long for a return visit.

"I think we will get it back," Trevett said. "I believe the organizers are very pleased. They have certainly indicated that to me."

World Stem Cell Summit founder Bernie Siegel told me he was more than pleased with the success of the event so far.

Trevett said San Antonio will gain more national exposure for its life sciences industries. In 2016, the National Association of Science Writers and the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing are scheduled to stage a combined conference in the Alamo City.
