World Bio Markets 2016 saw 500 attendees from across the global bioeconomy gather in Amsterdam for 4 days of content and networking. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this event such a success!


  What they said about WBM...



“WBM is unique in that it provides multiple opportunities for networking in an environment that doesn’t have that impersonal, large tradeshow feel.  One can easily connect with colleagues and, due to the flow of the agenda and activities, naturally re-connect throughout the week.

Mike Knauf
Chief Executive Officer, Rivertop Renewables


WBM is a perfect set up to meet, in one place, with fellow industrial partners. Even if usually think I know most of the things that deal with our business, this year again I met with a few actors with whom we could identify potential common interests!

Definitely a good place to be! Every year ”

Jean-François Rous
 Directeur Recherche, Innovation & Dévelopement Avril

“For us, World Bio Markets 2016 is one of the top 3 world wide events to establish new contacts with potential partners and clients.

In particular the broad attendance and online meeting tool are key factors to that. ”

Thomas Buhl
Heade of Business Development, Global Bioenergie


“World Bio Markets is an excellent platform to connect the various players along the bio-based value chain.

Even in a challenging macro-economic environment it identifies success stories and highlights opportunities for the road ahead."

Bruno Rudnik
Managing Director, SusTech Consult


“It's unusual in the chemicals industry to have so many people attending a single event. 

The presenters represented quality companies and overall there was an atmosphere of realism about the challenges but a confidence in the technologies.  ”  

Andy Allen
VP Chemicals, Amec Foster Wheeler


“It’s why I’ve been coming to World Bio Market’s for years – To meet with other people from the industry, to meet with feedstock suppliers, with technology companies, chemical companies and with brand owners.

Bringing all these together makes it really worth it to visit such a conference.

Tom van Aken
CEO,  Avantium


“I was very happy to see that the conference again put together solids and liquids, which was for us beneficial. I’ve seen more interesting people than the last edition – also industrial people which is good.”

Danny Vancoppenolle
Commercial Manager, Port of Ghent


“The event was terrific for meeting peers in the bioethanol sector and coming up with new ways to  communicate ethanol's role in transport decarbonisation. ”

James Cogan
 Industry, Policy & Technology Analyst, Ethanol Europe Renewables Ltd


“A conference where you can share with your peers and get the big picture of the present status of the bioindustry .
