Top 5 Tips from the Partnering Team to supercharge your outreach

Start with active companies that meet your Partnering criteria

Use advanced search to select the types of companies you want to meet with - "included company types" is a great place to start, and "Primary/secondary therapeutic areas" allow you to get more specific. Make sure to sort by "modification date" to see companies that have most recently updated their profiles - those companies likely have delegates logging in regularly and checking meeting requests. Hint: Looking for cancer-related therapeutic area? Start with "neoplasm". 


Follow up with companies you met last year

From the search page, if you select "Advanced Search" and "Companies" there's an option to filter for "Previously met companies" - this will include any company you or your colleagues have met with at any past BIO Event. 

Keep yourself up to date with Saved Searches

New companies are registering delegates every day. Make sure to save your search criteria, and use the "Company registration date" to see new companies within your saved criteria that have registered since you last logged in.

Target delegates from bigger delegations

Targeting delegates is a great way to tailor your meeting request, and the BIO Partnering community loves a tailored message. (They perform better, too.) Use this feature if you know who you're targeting and/or why you're reaching out to them.

Include linked resources

Don't keep your best marketing materials to yourself - share them in your message! You'll need to update the "Assets, Services and Market Products" section of your profile to link any of those as resources, and you'll want to upload any other attachments, like Powerpoint decks, to the "Content" section of your profile. 


BIO One-on-One Partnering Basics


Advanced BIO One-on-One Partnering™ - May 1



How do I register for Partnering?

For access to BIO One-on-One Partnering™, you must register for the Premier Access registration pass. The BIO One-on-One Partnering system is open and you can expect to receive your partnering login information and access to the system within 1-2 business days of your completed registration. Be sure to add noreply.partnering@bio.org to your safe senders list to receive your login credentials.

What is the difference between Business Forum and Exhibitor Booth Partnering?

1) Business Forum Partnering meetings are held in the Business Forum, which is a separate, dedicated meeting area only accessible to registrants with a Premier Access registration badge.
2) Exhibitor Booth Partnering is available for purchase to exhibitors that are independent or within a pavilion. These meetings are conveniently scheduled in meeting points within individual exhibit booths and pavilions in the Exhibition. Exhibitor Booth Partnering meetings can only be scheduled during exhibition hours.

Both levels of partnering use the same BIO One-on-One Partnering™ system, which allows all partnering participants to schedule face-to-face meetings with senior level management.

All Exhibitor Booth Partnering meetings take place in the Exhibition. This means that when an exhibitor has a meeting with a Business Forum delegate, the Business Forum delegate exits the Business Forum and meets with the exhibitor in the exhibitor’s booth. Exhibitor Partnering Contacts (EPCs) and Exhibitor Booth Personnel (EBP) may not enter the Business Forum.
