ABIM - Annual Biocontrol Industry Meeting

ABIM 2017 - The global biocontrol industry meeting

ABIM is the premier global meeting for the biocontrol industry and is internationally recognised as the global platform for the industry to network, discover and unveil new products, market opportunities and research areas. But as well as promoting biocontrol and networking it is the platform to liaise with and inform policy makers and regulators of the specific needs of our unique growth industry.

During the three days of the 11th conference, over 898 delegates from 48 countries representing 426 companies and organisations from all over the globe were present and exchanged experiences and obtained information on the latest products and developments on the world market. Two keynote speeches and one panel discussion enriched the programme. The scientific programme with 8 sessions with 29 presentations covered the latest developments in market development, regulatory affairs and novel products for plant protection. The exhibition was at the core of the congress, giving 59 companies excellent visibility.
