WPSA UK 2020 Spring Meeting

De Vere Midlands Conference Centre




The  Challenge of Change

31st March and 1st April 2020

At the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham

We are pleased to announce our collaboration with BSAS in our 2020 annual science conference addressing The Challenge of Change. Based at the central Midlands location of the De Vere Conference Centre, Nottingham, the venue is easily reached by road, rail and air. The De Vere provides a compact venue allowing easy flow between the onsite hotel and meeting rooms, with wifi throughout.

Change has always been a strength of the poultry sector, and never has our flexibility been more important as we look towards a future serving a rapidly changing consumer. By drawing together experts from a range of fields, the BSAS-WPSA session aims to inspire our delegates to synthesise new approaches to their own work.  Invited speakers will explore avenues for meeting the changing needs of our consumers while maintaining social, environmental and economic sustainability.

Abstract submissions will open soon, so please begin preparing papers.

We look forward to seeing you in Nottingham,
