We are pleased to announce that this year's CIH AGM and Conference will be held at The Farmers' and Fletchers' Hall in Central London. At the AGM Martin Emmett will deliver the James Bruce Keynote Lecture. Martin is a prominent horticulturist and Director of Walberton & Binsted Nurseries. The conference itself will feature speakers on Leadership, Innovation and Growth in the public and commercial sectors of horticulture and the impacts of horticulture on public health and government agendas, nationally and internationally. The conference seeks to explore the challenges of diminishing budgets, the need for wider income generation and the changing role of horticulture in the public sector. In the commercial sector the conference will explore market share consolidation, growth through acquisition and the drive for economies of scale to compete with overseas competition, in particular when servicing the supermarket chains. Whether in the public or commercial sectors the same challenges run through all horticultural enterprises. Delegates will hear invaluable insights from all sector speakers in what promises to be an informative and thought-provoking conference.
