Marketing and Event Manager

Location: Swansea
Salary: Negotiable
Hours: Full Time
Contract type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: Immediately

We are currently looking to hire an experience Marketing and Events Manager on a full-time contract until July 2019 with possible extension to 12 months. The post will commence immediately. This role is located Bionema office, Swansea University, Singleton Park, Swansea.

Bionema Limited and Swansea University are to host the inaugural Biopesticide Summit and exhibition in Swansea University, United Kingdom on 2-3 July 2019 to address the pressing need to develop alternatives to chemical crop protection.

The Biopesticide Summit 2019 will focus on developing and introducing innovative and alternative biocontrol solutions that will help protect our food chain in a controlled but timely manner.

The Global biopesticides market is increasing and was worth approximately $3.36 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach $8.82 billion by 2022, at an annual growth rate of 17.4%.

Despite significant growth in the biocontrol industry, major limitations with current biopesticide solutions are rarely discussed. There is an urgent need to develop novel products and application technologies to not only “fill the gaps” in the market due to pesticide removal but also to anticipate future requirements as pests and diseases are developing resistance to currently used chemical products.  In additional, there is increasing consumer led retailer demand for growers to eradicate the use of chemical pesticides in crop production and to grow fruit and vegetables with reduced detectable residues.
