The Forum Chairman, John Moverley, writes in its introduction ‘’ There continue to be many challenges facing the amenity sector in terms of its approach to weed, pest and disease control. The impact of policy change is significant as are the cost pressures and other technical challenges. The emphasis is very firmly on adopting integrated approaches and making the most effective use of pesticides.

Amenity is in the spotlight. It is important that the sector itself shows it can rise to the challenge and get fully behind best practice and driving up standards. It is important that the sector does this itself and it is not imposed by others and it is important that we stand together in our endeavours, hence our conference title of ‘Better Together’.

This conference will seek to address the hot issues, investigate the implications, the approaches available and hopefully find ways in which the challenge can become an opportunity’’

The Amenity Forum conference and exhibition has become very much the must attend event for all with an interest in this area with key speakers, wide coverage of the sector and great opportunities to network and share ideas. Delegate rates are £50 for non members and £45 for members with a £5 reduction for those booking before September 1st. Bookings can be made by email to conference@amenityforum.net
