Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2nd Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome will be held on November 2-3, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In response to delegate feedback, the 2017 agenda has been transformed. As well as featuring presentations by leading plant scientists, the program has been added to with the inclusion of microbiome research. The addition of extended panel discussions on venture capital & investment for example and roundtable debates covering metagenomics strain discovery & development and product formulation, storage & delivery to name a few will help make this a truly interactive meeting.
With 60 talks to choose from, a drinks reception and 7 hours dedicated to networking, this meeting offers you an exceptional opportunity to interact with and learn from both the speakers and your peers. A dynamic exhibition room is also available for you to discover technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions.
The event will be co-located with the 5th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: USA, which is recognised around the world as the one of the leading NGS, Omics and Gene Editing conferences focused exclusively on plants.
If you are from a smaller company with a new product or product in development which you would like to showcase to this audience email Faizel Ismail.

A key focus of the event is facilitating collaboration between the over 170 senior representatives from industry and academia who attend. In terms of content, the conference will examine the latest technologies, strategies and research in the growing biologicals industry.
Increasing prioritization of sustainability in agriculture has led to rapid growth in the agricultural biologicals industry. The benefits of biological products in agriculture are significant, and developments in technology and research make agricultural biologicals an exciting, dynamic industry in which to work and study.
To keep up with these developments, this year the congress includes coverage of the latest in plant and soil microbiome research. The addition of roundtable discussions, each led by an expert in areas such as Metagenomics; Biostimulants Regulation; Precision Agriculture; Commercialization & Business Development; Product Formulation; Storage & Delivery; Industry-Academia Collaboration, will enable a more detailed examination of some of the newer trends.
