San Diego, here we come! Next week, we’ll join the world’s largest gathering of biotechnology innovators at the BIO International Convention. The event will feature industry leaders from around the globe coming together to discuss the crucial issues that move innovation and discovery forward.
It’s been 21 years since the first BIO International Convention, but the event continues to cement our efforts to identify shared opportunities to create a healthier tomorrow. Last year’s record breaking conference featured 13,500 industry leaders from 47 states and 62 countries. Over 800 speakers shared their expertise on the breakthroughs in medicine, food and agriculture, the environment, public policy and more.
This year’s convention promises to build on the success of past years. Take a look at a few of the events that we’re eagerly anticipating:
