The Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) will celebrate its 25th anniversary this summer.

BIO is the world’s biggest and most influential trade body representing the industry. And it will hit the quarter century mark when it holds the BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology in Philadelphia this July.

“The 15th annual BIO World Congress coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization. In June 1993, two smaller trade groups – the Industrial Biotechnology Association (IBA) and the Association of Biotechnology Companies (ABC) – merged to form BIO. Over the past quarter-century, BIO’s policy advocacy and business partnering support have helped biotech companies build a diverse and thriving industry. Throughout 2018, BIO will be celebrating the policy and innovation milestones that have helped the United States become the world’s strongest biotech market,” Brent Erickson, Executive Vice President, Industrial & Environmental, at BIO, told us.

Innovators Magazine is a media partner with BIO World Congress and will be producing a special biotech edition, which will be distributed to delegates in Philadelphia. Email connect@innovatorsmag.com to find out how you can get involved with this magazine.

The Congress will take place between 16 and 19 July 2018, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
