MassBio Plans Pre-BIO 2012 Convention Events for International Visitors and Local Organizations
Massachusetts is rolling out the red carpet for our international visitors! Working hand-in-hand with member organizations and government partners, we are planning two events in the days leading up to the convention to make connections between foreign delegates traveling to Boston and Massachusetts-based industry leaders.
On Friday, June 15, MassBio will host networking sessions, an orientation lunch and industry cluster tours. Morning networking will include discussions featuring panelists from local industry and the academic and hospital-based research communities. After an orientation lunch, attendees will be provided tours of the area’s biotechnology supercluster, featuring stops at Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Millennium: The Takeda Oncology Company, Biogen Idec, Pfizer’s Center for Therapeutic Innovation, The Broad Institute, the Center for Life Sciences in Boston, and Genzyme. The day will conclude with networking at Tech Square in Cambridge.
On Sunday, June 17, the Massachusetts Global Gateway Welcome Reception will take place at the New England Aquarium in Boston. In addition to foreign delegates, this business casual reception will be open to members of the local biopharma community by invitation only.
The event will feature national “meet-up” stations, facilitating networking in an informal setting. International sponsors will also be featured as speakers during “national toasts” which will occur throughout the event. This event, hosted by MassBio and MOITI, will provide attendees an opportunity to make helpful connections in a relaxed and fun atmosphere before the business of the BIO International Convention begins.
