First week of June was busy for BioME staff and Board of Directors, as we organized the Maine Pavilion at BIO International Convention. BIO is one of the largest industry trade shows in the United States and more than 16,000 attended. We were glad to have a number of Maine exhibitors within our Pavilion: The Baker Company, GTCA, RockStep Solutions, Optimum Imaging Diagnostics, FirstPark, MMCRI and UNE. The Association and our exhibitors were able to make many valuable connections and meet with a number of companies and professionals. On Wednesday, June 6, we welcomed the Legislative Delegation who came on a chartered bus all the way from Bangor. The State Legislators had an opportunity to walk the show, as well as attend the Maine State Reception held later that day at Verrill Dana’s Office in Boston. Maine Pavilion and Reception Sponsors included: MTI, MITC, The Jackson Laboratory and Consigli. Thank you!
