The Central Mass Advantage
The Life Sciences Industry has seen incredible growth the last decade, and Massachusetts has become a worldwide leader with continued industry growth and expansion underway. While the epicenter of the industry cluster remains in Kendall Square, the state’s strategy calls for the expansion of lab and manufacturing space throughout the state, with the potential for significant growth in Central MA. Worcester, Marlboro and Devens are already well positioned with leading life science companies in their backyard, while other communities in the region are looking to capitalize on the industry’s westward movement. The advantages for companies to expand in Central Massachusetts are significant, including lower cost of land and facilities and access to more affordable housing for employees.
PANEL SESSION I:
Why Central Mass? A discussion with local industry leaders about the opportunities and impediments to growth they have experienced in Central MA. We’ll also discuss the effect of industry clusters of research and resources, and how that can help recruit life science companies and provide fertile soil for their growth in Central MA.
PANEL SESSION II:
The Real Estate Story - Where does industry development currently exist? How do we accommodate life sciences growth in Central Mass with limited space? Current obstacles, adaptive reuse, construction projects. Featuring developers/landlords/industry real estate professionals.
