WASHINGTON - Gov. Scott Walker put his time to work at the 2011 BIO International Convention in Washington by meeting with company executives, investors and trade representatives before and after Wisconsin-hosted events.
Walker met briefly Monday night with representatives of about a half-dozen companies and delegations. That included representatives of Wisconsin's sister state of Hessen and the Japan External Trade Organization, as well as Wisconsin native G. Steven Burrill, founder of San Francisco-based Burrill & Co.
Walker met with four other companies Tuesday morning, and after opening the Wisconsin pavilion walked the convention floor for impromptu discussions with industry leaders at the Minnesota and Canada pavilions. Walker left the BIO convention hall by mid-day Tuesday.
