Outlook Conference date confirmed
The AHDB Outlook Conference 2016 will take place on Tuesday 9 February, at One Great George Street in London.
Hosted by the three livestock divisions of the AHDB, representing beef and sheep, pigs and dairy sectors, along with AHDB Market Intelligence (MI), the event will explore factors that affect delegates’ businesses in their respective sectors.
Key note speakers will focus on the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU and the relative competitiveness of UK and global livestock sectors. There will also be opportunity to discuss these important issues. The conference will, as usual, also include separate breakout sessions covering each of the three sectors. The Pork session will cover the outlook for the pig market, including the latest AHDB forecasts for UK supplies, and an overview of feed market developments.
