Invitation to Support

The 9th International Plant Biomechanics Conference (PlantBioMech2018) is taking place at McGill University in Montréal from August 9-14, 2018, and we invite you to join us as a conference sponsor.

About PlantBioMech2018

  • Expecting up to 200 participants from Canada, the US, Asia and Europe

  • Only international scientific Plant Biomechanics event

  • An opportunity to reach principal investigators in the fast-developing fields of plant biomechanics, wood mechanics, biomimetics

  • Impact the next generation as we expect 30% of audience to be graduate students

  • 70% of participants make purchasing decisions


The International Plant Biomechanics Conferences are a long-standing series organized by scientists. The inaugural conference was held in 1994 in France, and since then the conference has been held at three-year intervals. The Montréal conference is the second one held in North America and the first to be held in Canada.


Scientific Tools used in Plant Biomechanics

  • High end microscopy (live, fluorescence, electron, atomic force)

  • Mechanical testing

  • Materials testing

  • 3D printing

  • Mechanical modeling

  • Micromanipulation

  • Plant growth facilities

  • Molecular biology

  • Cell biology


Please review the opportunities provided in the PDF Sponsorship Prospectus, selecting those that best fit your needs. PlantBioMech2018 provides the flexibility to tailor your own sponsorship experience by selecting options you know will best accentuate your presence at the Conference and beyond, providing the highest return on investment. 


We sincerely hope we can count on your support, and look forward to seeing you next August in Montréal.

Thank you,
