Registration Instructions

All presenters must be issued codes in order to begin registration. Those who have confirmed their presentation should email their package selection and number of attendees to Jennifer Fernandez at jfernandez@bio.org. Further instruction will then be provided. Presenter registration options are:

Option A) Presenter Group Package:
Includes your presentation fee, registration for your presenter, plus two addtional employees within the presenting company. Choose this if you're bringing three or more individuals to the event.

Option B) Individual Presentation Package:
This option allows you to register your presenter and pay your presentation fee. You should also choose this option if you need to register your presenter, and pay for an additional attendee.

Option C) Discovery Track Company:
Corporations qualifying for the Discovery Track rates include only the following: Discovery Track corporations are "pre-emerging" biotech companies, qualifying as seed and A-round companies incorporated after 2009 that have raised, or are looking to raise, less than $25M total through October 2014. For this event, Discovery Track companies must use biotechnology or related technologies for research and development of drug products or diagnostics. For those companies that want the Discovery Track rate for a company presentation, they also must be first-time presenters at the BIO Investor Forum. This option allows you to register each person and pay your presentation fee separately.
