NFU launches conference website

A new website has been launched to mark next year's NFU conference, with speakers from the Government, the Bank of England and a supermarket top table.

News, videos and speeches from the likes of environment secretary Hilary Benn will be added to the site live as the event, called New Agenda for Farming', unfolds.

"Coverage of the conference has been so popular in the past we decided to launch a website dedicated to the event," said vice-president Paul Temple.

Other speakers at the NEC's Hilton Birmingham Metropole will include Professor Charles Bean, deputy governor at the Bank of England.

Mark Price, managing director of Waitrose and Dr Klaus-Dieter Schumacher, head of economics at Alfred C Toepfer International will also speak.

The conference on 16-17 February is expected to attract over 1,000 delegates, and is being billed by the NFU as a must-see in times of economic woe.

"In these times of unprecedented economic turbulence there is no greater opportunity to hear first-hand how this impacts on the agriculture industry."
