Biopesticides Europe 2023 Conference

June 6-7, 2023- Brussels, Belgium

Our Biopesticides Europe 2023 will be taking place on 6th & 7th June 2023 in Brussels, Belgium.

Both the global and European biopesticides market has been growing steadily in recent years. Following new regulations and a growing demand for sustainable agricultural practices, biopesticides are expected to continue expanding - fast becoming an essential biocontrol tool for farmers and growers all over Europe. Nonetheless, restrictive regulations and complex registration processes continue to pose a significant challenge for product commercialisation.

Our 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 updates on market growth along with significant advances in new and innovative technologies as well as R&D projects.

Join us at this event in Brussels to gain further insights into how the producers of biopesticides are rising to meet industry challenges and engage in excellent networking opportunities.
