An organised panel debate will include Professor John Moverley, chairman of the Amenity Forum, who will address the implications of Brexit for weed, pest and disease control, as well as the amenity sector as a whole.

Moverley said: "At this moment in time we are at a very early stage but, as well as posing a challenge, it is a time of opportunity to influence future decision making and represent the sector's interests. I look forward to a lively debate."

Other panel members include managing director of Turfcare Technologies David Cole from the industry supplier sector and chair of the IOG's Young Board of Directors Will Graves who will discuss the impact of the Brexit decision for young people in the industry.

A separate 'Question Time'-style panel will include Will Kay from Languard, Mark De Ath from Headland Amenity and Stephen Jacob from BASIS Registration.

The event will be held on 2-3 November at the NEC in Birmingham.
