The title for the 2021 Amenity Forum Annual Conference has been announced as ‘Facing the Future’.
What will the new normal bring? How will amenity organisations need to adapt and change? What will be the impact of proposed policy changes in how the work is undertaken? The Forum say all these topics and more will be covered.
In 2021, the conference will commence with policy updates from a senior UK government representative, the chemicals Regulation Department of HSE and from the Environment Agency. This will be followed by presentations drawn from different aspects of amenity addressing the issue of integrated approaches and how they are applying them in their day-to-day amenity management approaches. Following these will be presentations on the very important area of education and training, talking about opportunities for continuous professional development and how new advances in digital technology can help.
The penultimate section of the programme will comprise two presentations. The first will focus on managing parks safely and sustainably and the second, an expert view on assessing the full life cycle implications of different methods of amenity management, including taking into account effectiveness, economics and carbon foot printing. The conference will conclude with a presentation by the head groundsman at Lords', Karl McDermott, providing his take on the challenges ahead.
During the event the category winners for the 2021 Amenity Sprayer Operator of the Year Awards will be announced and presented.
The conference is being held at the Kettering Conference Centre in Northampton on October 21st. The conference will also be available online.
