The pavilion was coordinated by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, with support from the BioBusiness Alliance of Minnesota and LifeScience Alley, with the aim of promoting the state as a venue for biotech investment and collaboration. Next year’s BIO conference will be held in Chicago.
