NBN Conference 2015
The 2015 NBN Conference took place on the 19th and 20th November.
With attendance from just under 180 delegates from biodiversity organisations, local environmental records centres, recording schemes, government bodies, students and individuals all concerned with biodiversity data and biological recording.
For the first time in its history the Conference ran over two days and moved from its usual venue in London to the Lakeside Conference Centre in York. The extended duration allowed us to reassess the programme and format of the Conference resulting in four keynote addresses, the annual Sir John Burnett Memorial lecture as well as the main presentations and an increased number of speed talks, which had proved so popular in 2014. Across the two days 35 speakers covered a broad range of subjects within the global to local theme.
