You may not realize it, but biotech is big business in OKC. In fact, companies in the bio industry in Greater OKC cumulatively sport annual revenues of more than $4.1 billion and employ more than 27,800 workers with total compensation of $1.5 billion (yep, those are Bs, people). Those big numbers are just some of the reasons the OKC Chamber partners with the Oklahoma Bioscience Association (also known as “OKBio”) to promote Oklahoma at the BIO International Convention every year. Last year, Oklahoma biotech companies, research institutions, universities and other organizations held 150 meetings with potential partners, investors, employees and more at our booth. We had so many meetings, in fact, that we decided to add another meeting room this year, for a total of four! Collaborative efforts like these help lead to long-term success for our companies and organizations, and that helps make for a healthy economy as well as healthy people.
