Final speaker announced for UK Vining Pea Conference

by Tim Mudge

“What does the consumer of tomorrow look like?” Pea conference announces final speaker.

With less than a month to go to the conference on the 11th November 2015 the final speaker has been announced for the UK Vining Pea Industry Conference. Alan Smith of A&P Marketing will be looking at the changing attitudes of consumers and how this will impact upon marketers and feed back down the supply chain. Alan is an experienced marketing professional who has worked in the UK and overseas. His addition, to a very full programme, will complete the day.

“The response to the conference has been overwhelming” said Tim Mudge of British Growers. “As well as large number of UK delegates we have registrations from France, Germany and Holland and the venue is very nearly full already. It’s a nice problem to have and it is a testament to the high quality of speaker we have been able to attract and the broad range of topics that are being covered.

The conference, which is sponsored by Syngenta, is aimed at growers, managers, agronomists, processors, seed companies, crop protection specialists and machinery manufacturers from the vining pea industry and is free to attend if you pre-register.
