Birmingham, UK site for 2nd annual Biopesticide Summit

The second annual Biopesticide Summit & Awards will take place on 19-20 May 2020, at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, United Kingdom, according to a press release from the World BioProtection Forum.

The Summit aims to connect industry and academia to create novel ideas and services, next-generation formulations and delivery systems and provide support for accessing investments to commercialize novel products, according to a press release from the Forum.

“By helping to bridge the gap between academia and industry on the one hand, and commercial providers, growers and buyers on the other, this Summit can address the issues that really matter for the biopesticide industry: namely, where is the next generation of commercially viable innovation coming from, and how will they be financed?” said Minshad Ansari, Summit chairman and CEO of Bionema. “The Awards and gala dinner offer a truly unique opportunity to recognize the achievements of the latest and most innovative new products on the market, the best research projects and the brightest start-ups that the global bioprotection industry has to offer.”

The event brings together the international bioprotection community, including innovators, academics, commercial providers and end-users, to discuss and address the most pressing issues in crop protection and pest control.

The Summit is one of the largest events in the biopesticide industry outside of the US, by number of delegates. The NEC is Great Britain’s largest conference venue, and the ideal central location for national and international visitors to this second annual event.

Delegates will hear from world-leading scientists, researchers, key industry stakeholders, government organizations, investors, policymakers and integrated pest management practitioners.

The event also provides the opportunity for companies to exhibit and delegates to network with peers, innovators and investors.
