    History of the BIO International Convention

    The first BIO International Convention was held in 1993 and attracted approximately 1,400 attendees. The largest event to date was in Boston, Mass. in 2007, with more than 22,000 attendees. Media coverage has increased as well, from a smattering of trade-press reporters in the early years to more than 400 reporters in recent years. Many of the session topics are focused on perennial themes: raising capital in the venture and public markets; FDA, USDA, and EPA regulation; and patenting trends. Growth of the meeting, and BIO overall, has paralleled that of the young, dynamic industry BIO represents. 

    The BIO International Convention is the largest global event for the biotechnology industry and attracts the biggest names in biotech, offers key networking and partnering opportunities, and provides insights and inspiration on the major trends affecting the industry. The event features keynotes and sessions from key policymakers, scientists, CEOs, and celebrities. Past speakers include President George W. Bush, President Bill Clinton, Former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Tony Blair, Michael J. Fox, Sir Elton John, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, and General Colin Powell, among many others. The Convention also features the BIO Business Forum (One-on-One Partnering), hundreds of sessions covering biotech trends, policy issues and technological innovations, and the world's largest biotechnology exhibition - the BIO Exhibition.
