Corporate members range from entrepreneurial companies developing a first product to Fortune 500 multinationals. We also represent state and regional biotech associations, service providers to the industry, and academic centers. Our members help foster a healthy economy by creating good-paying, biotechnology jobs. We also host the largest cost-savings program in the life sciences industry, BIO Business Solutions, which saved $360 million in aggregate for 3,700+ companies last year.
EMERGING BIOTECH COMPANIES
We serve the needs of small-to-medium size companies, most of whom do not yet have major products approved and on the market.
We promote biomedical innovation by developing and advocating for public policies that represent the best interests of members focused on human health.
INDUSTRIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL BIOTECHNOLOGY
We promote the use of industrial enzymes, conversion of biomass to energy and chemicals, and innovative clean up technologies.
FOOD & AGRICULTURE BIOTECHNOLOGY
We create and advance industry policies on all food and agriculture biotechnology issues related to international affairs, government relations, science and regulatory affairs, and media and public affairs.
BIO also works towards enriching the industry with networking, partnering and education opportunities. We organize the BIO International Convention, the global event for biotechnology, along with many other industry-leading investor and partnering events held around the world. Arguably the industry’s leading partnering software, BIO One-on-One Partnering™ facilitates 50,000 face-to-face meetings each year among investors, biotechs, pharmaceutical companies, academic institutions and non-profits at live events.

Exhibit in Des Moines
BIO has been busy designing a new floorplan that is the hub of Partnering, Exhibits, Start-Ups and Networking at the Iowa Events Center’s Hy-Vee Hall in Downton Des Moines. Companies and researchers looking to showcase their latest product or breakthrough will have options for how they want to be featured on the exhibit floor.
The 2019 BIO World Congress will attract 900 attendees from over 570 companies. 40% of the BIO World Congress audience are international attendees (coming from 35 countries) and 20% are C-level decision makers.
