The meeting is organised in cooperation by the International Biocontrol Manufacturers Association IBMA and the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture FiBL. ABIM provides an annual meeting place specifically adapted to the needs of the biocontrol industry.

Plant protection with natural and biological systems allows for the sustainable production of healthy foods while refraining from the use of chemical pesticides. The biocontrol industry is based on many years of research and development.

During the three days of the last conference in 2013 , over 670 delegates representing more than 320 companies and organisations from all over the globe exchanged experience and obtained information on the latest products and developments on the world market. The vast majority of company representatives stated that they were highly satisfied with the outcome of the conference. In the scientific programme, 37 presentations covered the latest developments in market development, regulatory affairs and novel products for plant protection. In addition to the presentation, information was at display in stands and posters in the exhibition hall.
