With just over 180 delegates representing biodiversity organisations, local environmental records centres, recording schemes, government bodies, students and individuals all concerned with biodiversity data and biological recording, the 2017 NBN Conference was the best attended to date.

For the first time in its 17 year history, the Conference took place in Wales where it was held at the National Museum Cardiff.  With two keynote addresses, the annual Sir John Burnett Memorial lecture, 24 presentations and an afternoon of workshops we hope we offered something for everyone.

With social media buzzing for the two days, we hope the snippets below provide a flavour of the discussions that took place.

You can also click on the links below to view the videos from the NBN Conference. We also gave three Facebook Live broadcasts, so if you were there, you can relive the event and if you weren’t able to join us, you will hopefully get a really good idea of how it went!

PDFs of all of the presentations can also be found on the website.
