Business Conference - BFFF

Another Successful Business Conference

Our 9th Annual Business Conference and Exhibition took place last week at the Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth. More than 250 delegates came together for a very informative day. We kicked off the day with Economist Roger Martin-Fagg shedding some light on the economic indicators for the UK and Peter Maddox of WRAP exploring the reduction of plastic packaging and the impact of food waste on the environment.

We went on to hear from Kantar, IGD and CGA looking at the UK grocery scene, changing markets and insight into the hospitality sector. In the afternoon we looked ahead to the future as we were joined by Donna Champion of Nottingham Trent University who shared her views on Distributed Ledger Technology, Christopher Barnatt who explored The Rise of AI: Cognitive computing in the next 10 years and Hanna Pathak from Forum for the Future who gave us her views on sustainability.

The day came to a close with keynote speaker Mandy Hickson, the only female pilot on her front line Tornado Squadron.

A tasty lunch was provided by ABP Wessex, Whitby Seafoods, Billington Foodservice and Mademoiselle Desserts.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support. Joint headline sponsors Comma Group & Stibo Systems, Birds Eye and Daregal, keynote speaker sponsor XPO Logistics and Moy Park for sponsoring the water bottles on the tables during the day.
