BIO International returns to Chicago's McCormick Place next year -- and that's good news for Wisconsin's bio industry, the industry's leaders said last week.
This year's Wisconsin delegation at BIO was smaller than in past years, but that's partly because of the expense of traveling to places such as Boston and San Diego, said Bryan Renk, executive director of BioFoward, which represents Wisconsin's 600-plus bioscience.
Chicago is an excellent venue for Wisconsin because it's a lot easier – and less expensive – for industry members to attend, he said. Next year's attendence should be "excellent," he predicted.
