National Bioneers Conference 2016 Registration

Before you decide which ticket to purchase, please consider that the Bioneers conference is not a source of profit. It’s part of our mission to connect people from all walks of life with each other and with breakthrough ideas that can positively transform the world. If we were to charge what it costs, we would have a $795 ticket price across the board just to break even.

When you pay it forward by buying a higher-priced ticket, you make it possible for someone who shares your commitment but has more limited funds to join in this movement.

Thank you for all you do – we’re excited you’ll be a part of the 2016 Bioneers Conference!

Which Ticket Is Right for Me?Refund Policy
We do everything we can to subsidize the cost of the conference and make it as accessible as possible. Even so, we can only offer small quantities of discounted tickets for those with limited funds. Please buy your ticket at the price you can afford — and know your purchase is part of the Bioneers community traditions of diversity and inclusivity.

  • Pay-It-Forward: You are part of a for-profit company or foundation that has a budget for conferences or professional development, or are an individual with the means to purchase a ticket at this price. This is closer to the actual cost per person for producing the conference.
  • Individual: You are buying your tickets without employer funding, or have a more modest personal budget.
  • Students, Teachers and Limited-Income Seniors: Bioneers offers a small number of special-rate tickets to students, educators and seniors with limited incomes until September 30th, 2016 (or until they’re sold out).
  • Family Tandem: You are 2 adults who would like to share a ticket to attend the Bioneers conference and trade off attending the free Family Fair with your kids.
