BIO 2014

Georgia, USA brought some good old Southern hospitality to the great city of San Diego for BIO 2014. With more than 400 life science companies in Georgia, it was only natural that we play a large role in one of the biggest life science related conventions. We were joined by some incredible partners such as:

And a host of successful Georgia-based companies that offer cutting-edge life science products and solutions.

The conference kicked off with the Welcome Reception on the deck of the USS Midway.

The following day we were pleased to be joined by MM Active for an MOU signing within our pavilion. With the signing of the MOU, Innovation Crescent and MM Active agree to be supportive of collaborative research and development, information sharing, education, and other areas that provide the building blocks for innovative and cutting-edge life science industries.

Of course, we had to don Braves hats for a photo opp.

There was a lot to share with attending companies, including our new Bioscience Training facility, which will offer workforce training for companies such as Baxter International as well as other life science companies that choose to locate in Georgia.
