Coronavirus Forces The Postponement of the Biopesticide Summit 2020
The Biopesticide Summit and Awards 2020, the world’s leading event in the Biocontrol Industry and planned to be held on May 19-20th 2020, has been postponed to March 23-24th 2021 due to the developments concerning Coronavirus.
We are closely monitoring and following the UK Government advice and the advice of Public Health England and Wales in relation to this issue and we will continue to do so. The Government and our health and social care systems plan extensively for events of this nature, to ensure that the UK is well prepared to respond in a way that offers substantial protection to the public.
Securing an impressive line-up of global speakers has resulted in being extra cautious with safety and health in international travel, amid the growing concerns around spreading the virus.
The Biopesticide Summit has explored alternative ways of hosting a digital conference but felt it important to keep the interaction and engagement element for such an eminent group of speakers, sponsors and exhibitors and delegates.
Commenting on the announcement, Dr Minshad Ansari, Chairman and Founder of The World Bioprotection Forum, said:
“This is not a decision we have taken lightly. While it is disappointing to postpone, it is imperative that we prioritise the health and safety of everyone involved. Our goal remains to provide the best biocontrol event for our delegates, speakers and everyone involved.”
The Biopesticide Summit and Awards team will communicate closely with delegates, sponsors, speakers and exhibitors over the coming weeks to ensure we move in the right direction during this difficult period and is working with the NEC for smooth facilitation of postponement.
