2013 NFAN Conference Dates Announced

in Press Releases tagged

The National Farm Attractions Network has announced their programme, venue and dates for their 2013 Conference on 5th & 6th February 2013 at Drayton Manor Hotel, Staffordshire.

Mirroring the successful formula for the 2012 event, tours on the first day will visit National Forest Adventure Farm and Hatton Farm Village followed by a high profile speaker programme on the second day. The 2013 speakers include the DEFRA Minister, Richard Benyon, Visit England’s James Beresford and a number of ‘best in class’ case studies on catering, education and Halloween.

Said Matt Heast, Chairman of NFAN:

“NFAN continues to go from strength to strength and we hope the 2013 conference will again provide two thought provoking days with plenty of time for networking. Whilst the first day of tours is optional, last year 70% of the delegates attended both days and we look forward to a good turnout again”.

Alongside the Annual Conference, NFAN will also run its popular Trade Exhibition, showcasing over 50 suppliers from the farm attraction industry. New exhibitors this year include Bioniche Food Safety from Canada, DM Gould Wholesale, Regency Purchasing Group and lots more.
