Important Announcement Regarding BIO Impact 2023
BIO Impact Ag & Environment Conference will not occur September 19-20, 2023. Instead, we are working with our agriculture and environment members and industry stakeholders to meaningfully integrate key issues into our broader portfolio of events, including the BIO International Convention, which draws biotech companies and investors from around the globe every June. The time is critical to unify the entire biotech industry so that we can better advocate and educate on the innovation that will continue to heal, fuel, and feed the world. These companies all face economic and policy issues that are not unique to one sector and can be better served by acting in coordination.
With a reimagined strategy, we have the opportunity to facilitate united, cross-sector conversations about:
Growing investment in biotechnology and the bioeconomy.
Leveraging biotechnology innovation to enable advances in climate adaptation, mitigation and resilience.
Advocating for “one health” policies that help bring innovations to market to heal, fuel and feed our world.
We Want to Hear From You
We are also seeking input from companies, sponsors and investors in the sector on what BIO could do to engage agriculture and environment members at BIO International Convention and other events. If you have comments or suggestions, please submit your responses here.
Registrations completed with a credit card will receive a full refund by August 31, 2023. If the registration was paid in full, via a wire transfer, a separate email from firstname.lastname@example.org will be sent as BIO will require additional information to process the refund.
Your hotel reservation will be cancelled if you booked in the official conference block through Maritz. If you made arrangements through other channels, please make your own cancellations.
Engaging Industry Stories on the I am BIO Podcast

Our four guests today are scientists working to push these gene editing tools to the next frontier.
Plastic is polluting our waterways and oceans, but biotechnology may deliver solutions. Plant-based bioplastics that can break down in months are one solution. Another is mighty microbes bioengineered to speed up consumption of plastic. This episode spotlights scientists, companies and even a filmmaker and artist who are working in different ways to tackle the growing problem of plastic waste.
