Let's network at BIO 2024!

One of the main reasons our industry will converge at BIO is to network — and we've got events planned on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with just that objective in mind.  Be sure to make these receptions a part of your BIO 2024 experience.

NOTE: Monday and Wednesday receptions are included in Premier and General Access registrations only.
