The symposium welcomed 195 delegates from 25 different countries which included Norway, USA, Germany, Egypt, Croatia and Brazil. The conference allowed organisations within the biopesticides and related industries to present and share their experiences and to consider new innovative technologies which could enhance biopesticide efficacy and competitiveness.

Over the three days, there were 50 presentations given in total covering a variety of topics, plus a poster and networking afternoon. 

Professor Butt said: "The symposium and workshop have been a huge success. The talks were enlightening, business deals were done, new contacts made and consortia were developed."
