Annual Biocontrol Industry Meeting - ABIM

Annual Biocontrol Industry Meeting - ABIM 2020, 19-21 October 2020

The premier global meeting place for the biocontrol industry prevails despite Covid-19 and provides the unique experience in a fully professional virtual environment

The ABIM Executive Board with the full backing of the ABIM Board of Directors have decided to conduct ABIM 2020 as a Virtual Exhibition and Conference. The Executive Board and Messe Basel have worked intensively in the past months exploring and evaluating the most advanced conference tools available today. ABIM 2020 will again have an extraordinary good quality programme with invited speakers, Bernard Blum Award, seminars, training sessions, and the twin Anniversaries of the 15th ABIM and 25 years of IBMA.
You will be able to access the exhibitors in the virtual exhibition booth, talk with the exhibitors live and leave questions for them to respond to, hold scheduled and casual meetings, attend the conference sessions live and on-demand, participate in virtual workshops, personalise your attendance in the event and do most of the things you would normally do at ABIM.
By attending ABIM 2020 as a fully professional and interactive virtual event, you can participate fully in ABIM this year without the need to travel, stay away from your family, business and other commitments.
As you will be saving on the cost of hotels and transport you may wish to consider raising your profile from a delegate to having a mini-booth or becoming a sponsor. Mini-booths should be particularly popular for start-up and small companies as it allows you to have a presence for people to get to know who you are and what your company does without being tied to the stand for the whole time.
We aim to add interesting information to the website over the next few months to help you make the most out of this new format for ABIM 2020 so you arrive at the virtual event ready to participate. We are also extending the early bird registration scheme until 31 August to allow you to benefit from the discount on offer after knowing the format that ABIM 2020.

We the ABIM Executive Board will keep you updated with vital information to help you plan for your participation in ABIM 2020.
Best regards and looking forward to a successful fully professional ABIM 2020,
Lucius Tamm, Anne Merz, David Cary, Jennifer Lewis, ABIM AG Executive Board
