The Buzz of BIO contest provides an excellent opportunity for companies looking to make the connections needed to take their product to the next phase. Ten biotechs will be nominated in each of the three categories:  Public Therapeutic Biotech, Private Therapeutic Biotech, Diagnostics and Beyond. Please note that the contest is open to U.S. companies only.

There are two phases to the Buzz of BIO Contest: Nominations and Voting.

During the nominations period, we will collect nominations and review them to ensure they qualify for one of the three categories listed above, and that they meet the guidelines outlined in the contest rules here.

During the voting period, nominees are encouraged to promote their participation in the contest via social media, email, etc.

The companies with the most number of votes in each category at the end of the voting period will win a complimentary conference registration and company presentation, along with exposure to thousands of industry elites and potential investors.
