#BIO2013 is only 1 Week Away!

I can’t believe that BIO is Next week. Our community has been working hard with the national BIO group to make sure that this convention is a great success.  Next week we are anticipation more than 15,000 global biotech attendees to converge on the City of Chicago for 4 days of intensive programming, networking and some great receptions.

If you haven’t registered yet, you still have time.  For only $199 you can get a lot of networking value out of the convention:

  • 2,000 Exhibiting Companies & Organization and 60+ State and International Pavilons
  • Including access to the academic and product zone
  • Endless networking opportunities: meet critical decision makers of all types
  • Meet up with Illinois entrepreneurs on Tuesday, April 23 from 5 – 6:30 pm at the Illinois Pavilion Reception featuring live blues music.

Below I posted my schedule for the whole convention, including links to the sessions I plan on attending. If you have any questions about the BIO convention, please feel free to ask me, email ibiojohn@gmail.com. I hope I see you next week.
