Perhaps the best way to get off to a good start and build your confidence navigating the myriad programs, exhibit spaces, forums and special events is to join the “Attendee Orientation”, also on Monday.

Attendees will also understand how to leverage the myBIO app and One-on-One Partnering resources to effectively network during the event.
