The theme of the 2015 event is ‘Better Together’ and the conference will seek to update delegates on the implications of policy change, and new innovations and developments.
Speakers will include Adrian Dixon, head of the policy implementation team in the Chemical Regulation Directorate’s Regulatory Policy Group, Jon Gulson of the Environment Agency, Darren Brown of Bayer Environmental Science and other experts.
The event will take place in the conference facilities of Leicester City Football Club and will feature an accompanying exhibition area.
Forum chairman John Moverley said there continue to be many challenges facing the amenity sector in terms of its approach to weed, pest and disease control and it is "important that the sector itself shows it can rise to the challenge".
"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’," he said.
"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."
Delegate rates are £50 for non members and £45 for members with a £5 reduction for those booking before 1 September.
