The Amenity Forum conference in 2014 will be held on October 16th at Leicester City Football Club. The conference is an important event in the amenity calendar attracting delegates from all areas of this diverse and very important sector. There will also be a wide range of exhibition stands at the event.
The Chairman of the Amenity forum, Professor John Moverley, said 'This year's conference is entitled 'Staying in Control'. There are many challenges facing the amenity sector in terms of its approach to weed, pest and disease control.
The impact of legislation linked to such things as the Sustainable Use and Water Framework Directives 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 which could have unwanted implications, hence the theme of staying in control.
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'
Further detail of the programme and the impressive range of speakers will be announced shortly.
