The British Free Range Egg Producers Association (BFREPA) has announced significant changes to plans for its annual conference and industry dinner.
Sponsored by ForFarmers, Elanco and Newquip, the event will become a one-day affair, with the Free Range Awards dinner taking place on the evening of the conference, rather than the night before.
After holding the event in Birmingham for many years previously, BFREPA has selected a new location – the Telford International Centre – for this year’s November 15 event.
The move will allow for even more professional trade stand exhibitions and exhibitors will be able to utilise the on-site shell scheme framework to create more flexible and attractive stands upon which to meet farmers. Nearly half the stand space has already been sold.
Kate Dickinson, BFREPA’s Conference and Events Manager, said: “The BFREPA conference is a hugely popular event for free range egg farmers and the industry as a whole. But considering recent challenges, it’s arguably never been more important for us all to come together to help us tackle the major issues affecting producers.
“The conference also gives us an opportunity to celebrate all the positive things our industry has achieved that don’t get the attention they should when times are tough.
“This year’s event is set to be the best yet with a new venue, new format and more stand space than ever before. Make sure you put the date in your diary – we’ll see you there.”
Any businesses and individuals wanting to secure stand space or book dinner tables is advised to act quickly in order to guarantee attendance.
The show is open to all producers – members and non-members of BFREPA – and any businesses connected to the sector. For more information and to book stands and tables, visit www.bfrepa.co.uk
