Jake Davies, editor of Poultry.Network said: “We’re really excited to be launching this conference.

“Webinars and other online events have done a lot to keep people connected and informed over the past 18 months, but we strongly feel now is time to get people back together in a safe environment to reconnect.”

“The speaker lineup covers the whole poultrymeat and egg sectors. We want this to be a day of learning more about the entirety of poultry production, the challenges it faces, and the opportunities on offer.”

“Nothing can substitute the spontaneous networking that an in-person event can bring.”

We are asking speakers to set out the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on their business, how they adapted and what the future looks like for them.

Some of our speakers confirmed so far include:

  • P. D. Hook Director Patrick Hook
  • Noble Foods Marketing & Innovation Director, Laura Sheard
  • Tesco Agricultural Manager for Poultry, Eggs & Feed, John Kirkpatrick
  • Kelly Turkeys Managing Director, Paul Kelly
  • Arden Woodshavings Managing Director, Chris Stanford
  • Aviagen UK Head of Sales and Technical, Stuart Thomson,
  • DraperGROUP Founder, Paul Draper
  • Livetec Technical Director, Julian Sparrey

Topics will include: 

  • How the poultrymeat and egg supply chain kept food on shelves when the covid pandemic hit and what’s next.
  • What the broader supply chain did to help keep poultry farms operational.
  • How consumer habits have changed and are changing as we move to the ‘new normal’. 
  • A forecast for the winter avian influenza season.

Tickets for the event, sponsorship opportunities and trade stands are now available, and places are extremely limited.
