Focusing on organic cereals
Date Published: 07/07/2010
It’s that time of year again! Tomorrow sees National Organic Cereals 2010.
Since we launched this event three years ago it has turned into the biggest get together dedicated to organic farming in the calendar.
We will be hosting at least 225 delegates, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors tomorrow and, sadly, such is the demand that we had to tell an awful lot of people that we were fully booked and couldn’t accommodate them.
We hate doing that because, obviously, we want to include as many people as possible who could have something to gain or contribute to a day focused on this very important sector of organic farming.
The yearly growing demand has been taken on board and we will make whatever changes are necessary to address likely uptake of places next year. We honestly thought we’d done that this year, but NOC 10 really does seem to have become one of the year’s main attractions for the industry.
As it is we will be providing a sit-down organic lunch for everyone, which is no small feat for our caterer, and we’re looking forward to another extremely productive day.
We have national farming press representatives joining us, not to mention BBC presenter and respected farmer, Adam Henson, who is doing us the honour of chairing a discussion panel in the afternoon.
If you use Twitter, members of the team will be posting updates through the day (do a search for the hashtag #noc10 to follow those) and we’ll try our best to update this blog and our Facebook page with info and pics too – though this will depend on the availability of mobile data connections on the site!!
Now I must make sure my bag is packed and hit the road for Andover…
