The BIO International Convention, scheduled for April 22-25 at McCormick Place in Chicago, will highlight the trends and opportunities for executives, investors, scientists, policy leaders, and media in medicine, diagnostics, the environment, energy production, business operations, financing, partnerships, policy issues, and food and agriculture. The event is hosted by the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO).

The BIO Business Forum will host partnering meetings, workshops and a full program of sessions geared toward life science executives. The Business Development educational track will feature education programming discussing partnering, emerging markets, big pharma, and deal making.
