"I am extremely pleased that Wilmington will serve as the host city for the 2015 BioMarine Business Convention. It will provide a fantastic venue for business executives, government leaders, and researchers from around the world to discuss the importance of marine bio-resources for growing the economy through diverse sectors such as food processing, aquaculture, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and the environment. I have no doubt the Convention will generate significant deal-making and business activities for my state and for the regions of all the attendees."
