Welcome to the Greater Boston Life Sciences Corridor, home to the World’s Largest Cluster of Life Science and Biotech Companies, with more than 730 companies spanning five thriving communities all connected by the region's transit system. We warmly invite BIO 2018 guests from around the world to join us in exploring opportunities in life sciences and biotech across the Life Sciences Corridor and learn why this region is well positioned in offering a great location to live, work, and discover.
 
Located just south of Boston, Braintree is a gateway to Southeastern Massachusetts. Centrally located at the junction of Route I-93 and Route I-95/128 and less than thirty minutes from Logan Airport, Braintree offers the ideal transportation connections to all points south.  Braintree’s Life Science industry is home to the global headquarters for the blood management company Haemonetics.  
 
Another global firm, Citra Labs, is expanding their current Braintree location to accommodate significant market growth for their products and research.  This tour will highlight why these two global companies chose Braintree’s proximity to the intellectual capital of the Greater Boston area, geographic advantages, transportation assets available for product distribution and employee commutes as reasons for calling Braintree home.
 
Tours will pick up and drop off at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Tour cost: $35.00.
