The world’s premier event for the biotechnology industry takes place in Boston this summer.

Organised by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), the BIO International Convention will welcome over 16,000 stakeholders from 74 countries.

Innovators Magazine is a media partner with another event run by the organization, the BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology – so the Convention makes our weekend roundup of events and initiatives to look out for in the weeks and months ahead.

And as it is the 25th anniversary for BIO this year, there is plenty of social media activity worth engaging with – such as the  #MakingBIOHistory hashtag which is the place for ‘fun flashbacks, biotech milestones and surprises’ – according to BIO.

Early bird tickets are available until 12 April. The Boston Convention takes place from 4 to 7 June.
