Biopesticides Europe Conference

The 5th Biopesticides Europe Conference 2020 will be taking place on 27 and 28 May 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.
