IBS 2019

After the success and exceptional satisfaction rate of the first two editions of the International Biofilm Summit (IBS) initiated by REALCO - worldwide leader in enzymatic cleaning solutions and biofilm treatment - we have the pleasure of inviting you to its third event. The IBS 2019 will take place in Parma (Italy) on the 23rd & 24th of October 2019. 

Because of the constant challenge and crucial importance of efficiently managing hygiene in the Food and Beverage industries, the International Biofilm Summit was introduced 4 years ago with the purpose of raising awareness on biofilms and sharing knowledge as well as solutions to ensure finished products of the best quality. For this reason, the IBS has experts, cleaning companies and industrials meet in order to present and discuss new challenges and solutions for the whole Food and Beverage sector.
