What is Plant Based Summit?

One-to-one meetings: targeted business exchanges to meet major actors of the biobased market.

Exhibition zone: composed of institutional exhibitors such as clusters, regions, development agencies.

The congress

  • The leading biobased products congress with:
    • 30 targeted conferences
    • more than 100 international key speakers, providing insights and updates

The 2019 congress is focused on stimulating biobased product development through a market driven approach. Participants will have access to more than 700 professionals from all the biobased chemical industry value chain.

The challenge

To speed up the development process, all operators in the value chain need to deal with environmental issues, industrial and investment challenges by:

  • Bringing companies together to move towards an integrated plant based chemicals supply chain
  • Achieving technology scale up
  • Exploring business opportunities (industrial formulation, packaging, bio-cosmetics, plastics…)

At Plant Based Summit, each stakeholder in the biobased economy is able to share, find solutions to fit its own specific place and development stage, enabling it to make the decisive leap forward, thus contributing to empower the biobased economy.
