The BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology returns to Philadelphia from July 16-18, 2018. Last here in 2014, this is the world’s largest industrial biotechnology gathering for business leaders, investors and policy makers in biofuels, bio-based products and renewable chemicals.
This segment of the biotech industry continues to grow around the generation of green jobs, making greener products and developing cleaner processes aimed at building a bio-based economy. More than 2,100 business partnering meetings are already scheduled at the conference, up almost 10 percent from last year. It is also notable that the group will meet one year prior to BIO International Convention, returning to Philadelphia in June 2019.
Hosting the BIO World Congress in our region is an ideal way to promote our life science assets to key decision makers in the biotechnology industry for both business attraction and future investment. For more information, visit bio.org/events/bio-world-congress/2018-recap.
