Q: Are there options to help smaller companies get a chance to present?

The winner is decided by voters who believe the company to be the most interesting and innovative. More information will be made available shortly.
Q: Who will attend the presentations?
A: While company presentations are a part of the BIO Business Forum, presentations are open to all International Convention attendees.
Q: Does an attendee have to have Business Forum access to enter the presentation or to schedule a partnering meeting with me later on?
A: No, they can have any registration type to enter the presentation. However, if that person is interested in scheduling a meeting with you and does not have Business Forum access, we will only be able to schedule the meeting if they have space open in their exhibit booth at a mutually convenient time. (There will be Partnering desks onsite to help with last minute meetings.)
Q: Where will the presentations be held within the Convention?
A: This year, company presentations will be held right outside the BIO Business Forum.
