There are multiple sponsorship packages available that include meeting space and logo placement in the NJ Pavilion, exhibit hall and partnering badges, and more. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, contact Mariel Kokotajlo at mkokotajlo@choosenj.com.

Each sponsorship package comes with a designated number of badges, each of which comes with Exhibitor Hall access, and one (1) that additionally comes with Exhibitor Booth Partnering access. This partnering badge can only be used for partnering within the NJ Pavilion, and does not give access to the business forum partnering. If you are interested in purchasing additional badges or upgrading existing badges to have Exhibitor Booth Partnering access, please contact Voltaire Capellan at vcapellan@choosenj.com.

The partnering system opens in April. It is recommended to start partnering as early as possible to secure the most meetings while schedules are still open.

BIO International has confirmed that add-ons are not available this year. If you want access to main stage programming, education sessions, receptions, and the BIO One-On-One Partnering system, you can upgrade your badge to General Access or Premier Access. If you are interested in upgrading existing badges, please contact Voltaire Capellan at vcapellan@choosenj.com.

Choose New Jersey will process registrations for NJ Pavilion sponsors. Please complete this form and you will be registered shortly!

Sponsors are responsible for reserving their own hotel rooms through the 2022 BIO International Convention portal. Booking through the BIO portal is recommended as it comes with the best selection and discounted rates, and we encourage booking as soon as possible before blocks fill up. To view the full list of associated hotel and reserve rooms, click here. Please note that you do not need to register to attend the convention when booking hotels because Choose New Jersey processes registrations for NJ Pavilion sponsors.

All domestic and international attendees, exhibitors, and staff are required to be up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations to gain access to the convention. Individuals who do not meet these requirements will be unable to attend the event. Prior to picking up a registration badge, you will be asked to verify vaccination status, show photo ID, and answer health screening questions. Masks will be required at the convention.

The New Jersey Delegation is invited to join us on Monday, June 13 from 8:30 – 9:30AM at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Please note that the opening day of BIO International 2022 is on Monday this year instead of Tuesday.

The Welcome Reception will be taking place on Monday, June 13 from 5 – 6:30PM in the Exhibition Hall. Please note in previous years this event has occurred off site. All attendees are invited to the Welcome Reception this year.

The Choose New Jersey team will be promoting our presence at the event through paid advertisements as part of our State of Innovation campaign and through organic efforts. We will also be individually recognizing NJ Pavilion exhibitors on social media with a unique graphic that you can also share on your social channels. Our team will also publish a whitepaper blog in late April that highlights New Jersey’s life sciences ecosystem. Closer to the convention, we will create a briefing book to be shared with NJ Pavilion sponsors that will contain New Jersey delegation contact information, a list of all NJ Pavilion sponsor company descriptions, the 2022 BIO International Convention master schedule, and any other important information that will set you up for success at BIO.
