2023 CLA Rural Business Conference| Competing visions: the future of the land

Waiting list in operation- email
This year's CLA Rural Business Conference ‘Competing visions: the future of land’ will help those who own or manage rural land to make sense of the vital role of land in an increasingly political and polarising landscape.

Taking place on Thursday 30 November at the QEII Centre in central London, our flagship event will allow landowners and land managers to explore the complex relationship between themselves, consumers, corporations, governments, environmentalists and political campaigners. This year we are pleased to announce a robust lineup of speakers from Defra, the National Trust, Farmers Weekly, and more. Join us as they share their visions and insights on the future of land.

Speakers include:
  • Steve Reed MP - Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs
  • Victoria Vyvyan, CLA President
  • Heather Hancock LVO DL – Chair, The Royal Countryside Fund
  • Rt. Hon. Steve Barclay MP - Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
  • Hilary McGrady – Director General, National Trust
  • James MacColl - Head of Policy, Advocacy and Campaigns, The Ramblers
  • Neil Heseltine – Chair of National Parks England
  • Lucinda Langton – Head of Sustainability, Marks and Spencer
