5 Days Until BIO 2015: Meet the Official Bloggers!

June 10, 2015
The 2015 BIO International Convention brings together biotech leaders, innovators and companies from across the world currently helping to transform the scientific landscape. The expert speakers and timely sessions are insightful and a great way to learn key industry takeaways and trends.

It can be hard to keep track of everything going on at Convention and that is why we are working with bloggers and reporters who are covering events as they happen and can provide you with an inside look of what’s happening in Philly.

These bloggers, who are passionate about covering biotechnology issues, will cover Convention happenings on BIOtechNow and their own blogs. This is a great opportunity to learn more about their Convention highlights, analysis, and discussions. Make sure to bookmark their blogs, add them to your RSS feeds, follow their Tweets, and keep tabs on hashtag #BIO2015.
