This month’s East of England Farming Conference will reach a wider audience following an agreement that will see the event live-streamed into agricultural colleges.

Taking place on the 1 November at the East of England Showground, the conference is designed to share solid information with delegates from all aspects of the industry – providing delegates with ideas and inspiration that they can take away and adopt in their own businesses and careers.

The conference will be streamed to the colleges throughout the day. Students and others watching the conference from colleges will also be offered the opportunity of engaging with the questions and answer sessions via a MeeToo app.

With a wide range of topics from inspiring and engaging speakers, this interaction means students will be fully able to participate in the event from the comfort of their desk, explained conference chairman and Cambridgeshire farmer Tom Martin.

Access all areas

“Giving colleges and students this access to our conference without the added travelling time and costs is great and will give our participants insights to leading industry event. The students are the future of the industry so we must ensure we are able to open up and give access all areas.”

This year, Anglia Farmer and its sister publication Midland Farmer are working alongside the East of England Agricultural Society as the conference’s official media partners to support and promote the event both online and in print.

Joanna Price, vice-chancellor of the Royal Agricultural University at Cirecencester said: “This innovative step will allow RAU students to debate the key challenges facing our industries without leaving our Cirencester campus.

“I’m delighted that the East of England Farming Conference shares our vision of using technology to improve the experience of students across the land-based sector with new forms of connected teaching and learning.”

Sponsors include AS Communications, Roythornes, British Sugar, Brown & Co., CXCS, Soil Fertility Services, Land Family Business, Opico, Daltons Seeds, Easton & Otley College, the NFU, Produce World, Syngenta, Active Business Partnerships, and Premium Crops.
