US Biostimulants Summit 2020

Date: 1st October 2020 - 2nd October 2020 Location: Raleigh - North Carolina - USA

ACI’s US Biostimulants Summit 2020 will be taking place on the 1st and 2nd October 2020 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The conference will bring together leading executives and experts from across the entire value chain (producers of biostimulant and plant nutrient products, farmers and agriculture suppliers, technology providers, research institutes & government representatives) for two days of informative presentations, interactive discussion & excellent networking opportunities.



ACI is doing everything to ensure that all its events go ahead as advertised.  Like you, we are keen to get the meetings to happen and return to some form of normality.  We are constantly tracking WHO updates, local government regulations and talking to our attendees wherever possible.  Venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in order to make the conferences possible.

But we do accept that these are exceptionally challenging times and the updates are very fast moving.  As such, it may help you to understand how and why we arrive at decisions on moving ahead with any current event:  One month before the meeting we again re-assess the situation specific to the individual summit, both local to the event and globally.  We then take a decision as to the viability of holding the meeting as if it were happening the very next day.  If it is possible to run on that basis, we will proceed.  If not, we will be forced to take the decision to postpone the event to a later and better date.
