For the first time, an annual conference will cover the strategic business topics that are top-of-mind for the European biostimulants industry. The first edition of the joint EBIC-New Ag International European biostimulants conference will be held in Athens in June 2020.
The event will provide a platform for the industry to consider strategic topics that include regulatory affairs, but also long-term trends influencing the industry’s operating environment such as climate change, consumer preferences for food production, shifting demographics, sustainability imperatives and many others. The new conference will put biostimulant technologies in the context of broader societal challenges. The conference is being launched shortly after EBIC has agreed a new Mid-Term Strategy that widens its work on outreach to farm and fork stakeholders.
The agreement was signed by Luca Bonini, President of EBIC (CEO of Italpollina) and Anna Chrisman (Managing Director and President, Life Sciences, Informa Connect) in the margins of the Biostimulants World Congress, currently being hosted by New Ag International and supported by EBIC.
