Popular Updating Events To Be Run Online

At the start of each year the Amenity Forum run a series of free updating events for all involved or with an
interest in amenity management. These normally take place at venues across the UK and have been very
well received.

Given the current restrictions, opportunity to run these in the traditional way has been lost
but the Forum are going ahead with them but online. The same technology will be used as for the Forum’s
very successful conference held in October.
The format will be very similar to normal, with the programme starting at 10.15 and concluding by
12.30pm. There will be opportunity for questions and all the current issues will be covered. 2021 sees the
UK fully depart from the EEU bringing with its new regulations on plant protection products. The UK is also
issuing a new national action plan relating to amenity management in 2021. Just these two items present
challenges and opportunities. The events also give opportunity to catch up on new developments and
innovations and what is required to meet the Amenity Standard, set to become a requirement in future.
Whilst the content of each event will be broadly the same, each will have a particular nation focus. The
dates are given below, and each event is free to attend but pre-registration is required. If you would like to
register or receive further information, please contact admin@amenityforum.net Full programmes for each
event will be available early in 2021.

Professor John Moverley OBE, Independent Chairman of the Forum, said ‘As I often say, what happens in
amenity management impacts upon every UK citizen every day seeking to provide safe and healthy spaces
fit for purpose. The importance of this has never been more apparent in the last year. Our Updating events
are always popular and relevant, but this year is set to be more than ever. There is much change around
and how we address this will be vital’
