Beware of Imposters and Unofficial Vendors

In the months leading up to the BIO International Convention, sometimes exhibiting companies are contacted by individuals that claim to represent BIO – often selling advertising in fake show dailies or offering “attendee lists” for sale. Don’t be tricked!

Here’s what you should look for:

  • Emails from BIO will come from the domain "" – if someone contacts you from an unfamiliar domain, please check it against our list of approved service providers (found in the exhibitor service kit) or forward the email to to verify the source.
  • There is only one official show daily for the BIO International Conventionthe BIO Buzz. Distributed inside the convention center and in hotel lobbies, the BIO Buzz is an essential daily read for attendees. Inside each issue, attendees will see the daily schedule, editorial previews of upcoming sessions and the best photos and live interviews from the Convention. Don’t settle for ads in anything less than the BIO Buzz – it’s the quality content and targeted distribution your brand demands.
  • BIO does not share attendee contact information so our registration lists cannot be purchased. As such, beware of any company that promises to sell you an attendee list. BIO publishes an abbreviated list of registered attendees including their titles and companies 4-6 weeks out from the event. For more targeted attendee outreach, contact our sales team for ideas to identify and attract your top prospects. 

Our team is here to help you make the most of your time and investment at the BIO International Convention. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact us at and we would be happy to assist you.
