Returning to San Diego for the 4th time, the 2017 BIO International Convention attracts more than 16,000 global biotechnology and pharma leaders, CROs and CMOs, key academic institutions, major research labs, government agencies, leading consultants and service companies. Attendees come together for one week of intensive networking to discover new opportunities and promising partnerships.
The convention floor attracts a full range of executives: more than 75% of attendees have titles of Directors, C-Level and Executive Management. Throughout the convention, hundreds of these life science professionals come through the California Pavilion. The Pavilion is an important resource for convention attendees and as a pavilion sponsor, this is your opportunity to be among the first to have in-person contact with:
Executives inquiring into business opportunities with the life science community throughout California
Companies looking to relocate or establish a presence within the state of California
International delegations looking to connect with key industry players throughout the state
The 2017 California Pavilion offers premium location at the entrance of the Exhibit Hall and main entrance into the Business Forum area, providing an incredible level of visibility with attending life science and pharma executives. Located on the main cross aisle, the foot traffic by the pavilion cannot be rivaled.
