Rescheduled / Postponed event: Biopesticides Europe 2020 Conference

, Brussels , Belgium

Note: This event was originally planned for 27-28 May, 2020 in Brussels, Belgium and has now been rescheduled

New date: 7-8 October, 2020

Our Biopesticides Europe Conference 2020 will be taking place on 7th - 8th October 2020 in Brussels, Belgium.

The Global and European biopesticides market has been growing steadily in recent years. With increasing restrictions regarding traditional biocontrol tools and a growing demand for sustainable agricultural practices, biopesticides are expected to keep growing and become an essential biocontrol tool for farmers all over Europe. Nonetheless, regulations and registration continue to pose a significant challenge for their commercialisation.

This two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders, researchers and representatives from regulatory bodies to discuss current challenges and future opportunities within the industry.

The conference will also provide insights and updates on market growth along with significant advances in technologies and R&D projects.

Join us in Brussels to exchange your point of view with your peers and engage in excellent networking opportunities.

COVID-19
We are doing everything to ensure that all our events go ahead as advertised. Like you, we are keen to get the meetings to happen and return to some form of normality. We are constantly tracking WHO updates, local government regulations and talking to our attendees wherever possible. Venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in order to make the conferences possible.

But we do accept that these are exceptionally challenging times and the updates are very fast moving. As such, it may help you to understand how and why we arrive at decisions on moving ahead with any current event:  One month before the meeting we again re-assess the situation specific to the individual summit, both local to the event and globally. We then take a decision as to the viability of holding the meeting as if it were happening the very next day. If it is possible to run on that basis, we will proceed. If not, we will be forced to take the decision to postpone the event to a later and better date.
