The First International Conference on Arboricultural Biosecurity

10 International Speakers | 38 Speaker Sessions

Society for the Environment Licensed Body, the Arboricultural Association (AA), is proud to present a fantastic line-up of speakers for our 51st Conference, which will take place within new state-of-the-art facilities at ‘The Forum’, The University of Exeter’s stunning centrepiece.

‘Protect and Survive’ will focus on Biosecurity, a subject of much concern to the industry and to the population at large. To cover the variety of topics that affect Biosecurity, AA have gathered together a diverse array of 38 speaker sessions, including 10 prominent international speakers, to provide delegates with a comprehensive understanding of new research, developments and solutions.

Following the introduction of the collaborative middle day during last year’s event, AA are thrilled to be able to continue this new approach by presenting Tuesday’s Conference in partnership with a second Licensed Body of the Society, The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM). This has enabled the organising team to bring in expert speakers with a wider perspective than just the arboricultural view, with experiences shared from the ecology sector and the chance for delegates to network, discover new challenges, ideas and innovative solutions.

The conference is available for members of AA and CIEEM, as well as non-members.
