Oro Agri International Ltd is to sponsor the 9th Annual Biocontrol Industry Meeting (ABIM) (www.abim.ch) event which takes place at the Congress Centre, in Basel, Switzerland from 20 to 22 October 2014. “We are delighted to be able to support the ABIM 2014 event again as a platinum sponsor,” says Carol Pullen, General Manager Europe, Oro Agri.

“Last year we had an very positive response from our sponsorship and that is why we are sponsoring again. Oro Agri is a proud member of IBMA and supports the organisation wholeheartedly. Many of our distributors are also members and this event is a perfect place to meet our biopesticide industry associates. Oro Agri has a presence in over 85 countries worldwide but has a particularly strong focus in the biopesticide market in the EU so the ABIM event provides us with a great business opportunity to profile the company to a highly relevant audience.”

“Oro Agri is a key player in this sector and having it on board as an ABIM 2014 sponsor is great news,” says David Cary, Executive Director, IBMA. “ABIM 2014 will be a prime international meeting for the biocontrol industry and will highlight new trends in the global market. It is organised in co-operation with the International Biocontrol Manufacturers Association (IBMA) and the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL).

Its aim is to learn about new biological crop protection products and developments, discuss common interests such as policy and regulation and provide a forum for business and networking. In 2013 during the three days of the ABIM 2013 was a very busy event for the biocontrol industry conference over 670 delegates, representing 320 global companies attended the event. Early bird registration to the event is open until 31 July 2014.”
