Industry, investors, scientists and government officials from all over the world will gather in Edinburgh, Scotland's dynamic and stunning capital city, seeking strategic partnerships and to discover the latest in R&D.

A packed 2-day programme will feature influential and expert speakers across each of the sectors, with a variety of informative sessions, panel discussions and networking opportunities.

The programme is enhanced further with optional pre and post conference tours showcasing some of the world-class research facilities and expertise located in Central and Highlands Scotland

The AAA sector is of key importance for Scotland and indeed Scotland is already a major contributor in the animal science sector globally.

The optimisation of animal health, promotion of sustainable food security and stimulation of economic growth, both locally and internationally, make a major contribution towards the ambition to achieve net zero carbon emissions from UK agriculture by 2040, underlying the urgent need to work collaboratively to address the challenges of climate change.

The conference will include sessions on each of these themes, across each of the the three sub sectors, and presented by leading industry speakers.

There will also be many opportunities for networking, a grand Gala Dinner and optional pre and post conference tours of world-renowned science and research facilities in Midlothian, to the south of Edinburgh, and in the Scottish Highlands.
