“BIO2017 was a fantastic occasion which allowed us to meet both a wide range of potential clients and, as importantly, connect and reconnect with other local businesses. A networking and promotion event which is not to be missed for businesses seeking to raise their visibility within the county and expand their client base. We have already booked for BIO2018.”
Isabelle Barber - Rhodes House
“BIO is by far the best business event in Oxford! Having attended as both a delegate and an exhibitor, there are so many benefits to be gained from a personal and business perspective. So many networking events promise so much and fail to deliver… BIO are true to their word. Every year, Richard and team create a fruitful, thought-provoking and insightful agenda, ensuring there's something for everyone whatever your reason for attending. There's coverage from every sector and every event intervention enables inclusion at any level in any business. Definitely one for your diary next year… see you there!”

"CRW is a cultural outreach charity based in East Oxford; we produce the county's biggest cultural event, Carnival, which is geared towards affecting positive change within the community- in 2017 alone we have reached out to approx 90,000 Oxfordians through a series of cultural events and activities. BIO2017 provided our charity with an opportunity to raise further awareness of our cause within the business community which is invaluable to a charity like ours. When you are trying to attract sponsorship, develop trustee relationships and link in to corporate CSR policies, what could be better than a conference centre full of potential partners - the added bonus was that Richard donated our stall, which was very generous and we are grateful to B4 for helping us to shout about our charity to an audience we don't often get to have under one roof! We are now paid up members of B4."
