The Biotechnology Industry Organization, shortened to BIO, has launched its one-on-one partnering system that will help companies initiate private meetings and gain business contacts at its annual convention, which will be held this June in San Diego.

The convention attracts more than 15,000 attendees each year, and will be held at San Diego’s Convention Center.

More than 3,000 companies from about 60 countries are expected to participate in the one-on-one partnering meetings.
