RABDF Policy Conference
One Birdcage Walk, Westminster, SW1H 9JJ
Tuesday 5 November 2019
This will be the third conference taking place and the day is aimed at informing the industry and its decision makers on the latest topics, information and policy affecting the sector. The speaker programme will cover topics that are currently relevant to, and affecting the sector, such as future environmental regulation, the Clean Air Strategy, economic challenges and opportunities, consumer perceptions and genomics.
Whilst there will be some stand-alone speakers, the majority of sessions will see two or three speakers discuss the topic from different perspectives, in some cases focusing on what we can learn from other sectors. After each of these there will be a Q&A panel session with the relevant speakers answering questions from the floor.
