RICS Rural Mid-Session Conference comes back in May 2018 and will provide you with the opportunity to expand your knowledge in the rural sector.

Join us as we discuss the Tenant Farming Sector, the latest Codes of Practice and the importance of encouraging relationships between landlords and tenants of agricultural holdings. Further sessions such as woodland creation will take a closer look at investment opportunities for rural businesses and environmental benefits that woodlands can bring in terms of flood risk management, carbon sequestration, biodiversity and natural pest control.

The rest of the afternoon will focus on key sessions such as EPC regulations and key need to know for rural properties, the latest technologies that are transforming the rural profession and how the Digital Economy Act 2017 is likely to impact on the rural sector.

Meet up with your colleagues from across the region to learn, discuss and debate challenges and potential solutions to rural issues and take away crucial lessons learned from our speaker line up.
