ABIM 2023 Forwards Biologicals and Breaks Record in Basel

The Annual Biocontrol Industry Meeting – ABIM, presented by the International Biocontrol Manufacturers Association (IBMA) and FiBL on 23-25 October 2023, broke a second year in a row attendance record bringing together more than 1,800 delegates from 58 countries with 115 exhibitors of biological plant health and protection products at the Congress Center Basel in Switzerland.

Attendees connected and networked to discuss innovations and opportunities for the $6.2 billion global biological market. The event provided educational sessions, networking opportunities, and IBMA member meetings to move the biological crop protection and plant health industry forward.


During the keynote panel discussion, IBMA President Herman Van Mellaert commented how the event grows every year as more companies seek to develop their ideas and potential. As more growers adopt biological products due to improved efficacy and consumer demand for healthier farming practices and food, new biological companies and products are starting up throughout the world. Here are some photos of the event, showcasing colleagues celebrating the common goal of sustainable agriculture.
