17 October 2015
The Chartered Institute of Horticulture (CIH) will be hosting its conference at SALTEX 2015 on 4 November at the NEC, Birmingham. With its theme of Leadership, Innovation and Growth, the conference will bring together six top industry leaders to deliver dynamic and inspiring presentations on fruit, vegetables, protected ornamentals, botanic gardens, garden centres and green spaces.
The six respected speakers, including Phil Pearson Group Development Director APS Salads and Martin Emmett Director of Binsted Nursery and Walberton Nursery, will highlight their leadership challenges and growth success stories of managing commercial and public enterprises in the 2015 economy. The speakers will demonstrate the innovation required to capture and retain clients and members in all horticultural sectors against the challenging background of greater discretionary spend and diminishing budgets.
Andrew Gill CIH President, believes that SALTEX provides the ideal platform to reach the CIH’s extensive network of members. He said “The Chartered Institute of Horticulture is delighted to collaborate with the Institute of Groundsmanship for the first time by holding its conference at SALTEX this year. The new location for SALTEX at the NEC provides a central and accessible venue for all of our delegates, who will also have the added value of time to visit the exhibition. The Institute is grateful to the support from our event sponsors The Horticultural Trades Association, Omex and Horticulture Week, without whom the conference would not be possible. We have a first class line-up of speakers and it promises to be an excellent day open to both members and non-members.”
The CIH is the authoritative organisation representing those professionally engaged in horticulture in the UK and Ireland and its conference provides an excellent opportunity to gain an insight in to the challenges, trends and strategic thinking of horticultural leaders and to meet industry professionals.
