BioOhio is a 501(c)(3) organization and contributions assist our mission: “Connecting and serving Ohio’s bioscience community to drive success in improving global quality of life.” As 2019 marketing budgets are being prepared, we encourage you to consider including BioOhio membership and sponsorship as a part of your plan. You’ll save money and enjoy maximum visibility by bundling them. For starters, by combining your annual BioOhio membership and event sponsorship, we will reduce your annual dues by $200.

BioOhio has many events planned for 2019 taking place around the state. Sponsoring BioOhio events is an extremely effective way to gain visibility and marketing exposure. Contact Jen Goldsberry if you’d like to discuss creating a marketing package that works for your goals and budget.
