The 2011 BIO International Convention brings together leaders, innovators, and companies in the largest global event for the biotechnology industry. This is when and where you can see and hear insights, inspiration and what’s next in biotech.

But what if you aren’t there or can’t be in two places at once while there?

Keep up with what’s happening at Convention on BIOTechNOW, our new website, and also via the bloggers who are covering events day-by-day and minute-by-minute. These bloggers, who are at the top of the biotechnology beat, will cover Convention happenings on BIOTechNow and their own blogs.

Catch their highlights, analysis, and discussions, as well as join in the conversation with the bloggers and your peers. Do more than just read, too: ask questions, answer questions, add opinions, learn about reactions in the sessions—it’s a conversation so join in. In fact, we plan to continue this coverage and conversation all year long so you can keep up with industry news. BIO and these bloggers, who have an open invitation on BIOTechNOW will keep you abreast of BIO’s work on the issues, insights into major biotech news, and a connection to what is happening within the industry.
