British Growers has been appointed as secretariat of the Oxford Farming Conference taking place in January 2024.
Lisa Eagles, MD of the British Growers Association, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been given the opportunity to work with The Oxford Farming Conference, a prestigious annual event which brings together the farming industry to discuss and debate big issues.
“The Oxford Farming Conference secretariat appointment enhances our portfolio of clients, and we look forward to developing a strong partnership.”
British Growers join Hawk AV, Jane Craigie Marketing (JCM), and Clare Greener as partners and sponsors of the event.
The theme for the conference on 3-5 January at the Oxford Examination Halls is the ‘Power of Diversity’. The event aims to celebrate all aspects of diversity, including people, farming systems, genetics, and markets. In line with the mission of the OFC, it will also explore the diversity of thought and opinion.
Pauline Sutton, client manager at British Growers, is heading up the secretariat team which is responsible for the event’s administration, ticket sales and outreach programmes (Inspire, Scholars and Bursaries), as well as the wider organisation and management of the board.
Chair of OFC24, Will Evans – a 45-year-old Welsh beef and arable farmer – praised British Growers for taking on the “key role” of conference secretariat.
“I’m delighted to be working with British Growers,” said Evans. “They bring a wealth of experience to this key role and it’s great to know that with them at the helm all the information will be in place for a fantastic conference.”
