We are pleased to announce that this year’s NBN Conference will take place on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 November at the Albert Hall, Nottingham.

We were so impressed with the venue in 2018, and the feedback we received from you was extremely positive, so we decided to return this year!

The theme

The theme of this year’s NBN Conference is “Network, Knowledge and Narrative – sharing and using data across the NBN and beyond”.  Over the course of the two days we will be hearing from individuals and organisations from within the NBN and further afield, with a variety of speakers explaining how they are sharing and using data in their day to day work.

We will also have an afternoon of Knowledge Exchange sessions.


We are pleased to announce that the following speakers or organisations have confirmed that they will give presentations at this year’s NBN Conference:

  • Sir John Lawton – NBN Trust Patron, President of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Vice-President RSPB
  • Richard Fox – Butterfly Conservation
  • The Linnean Society
  • Durham University

Please watch this space for more details and the full programme, but for now – save the date!

Bookings will open in late July.


Sponsorship opportunities are available! The NBN Conference Sponsorship 2019 tells you more about getting involved.
