Recorders’ Conference 2020

Thank you to all attendees, speakers, recorders, societies, and everyone involved with organising the conference, for contributing to a wonderful day.

Our 2020 Recorders’ Conference was a resounding success, with the highest number of attendees in recent years and guests traveling from far and wide.

“The day was very well organised, I wouldn’t change a thing.”

– H. P.

“The balance between talks and informal gatherings (breaks and lunch) was just right.”

– M. C.

“All together, a nature wonderland.”

– H. L.

In addition to this very encouraging feedback, recorders have requested talks on hoverflies, molluscs, and beetles for next year. If these are your areas of expertise and you’re interested in speaking at our 2021 conference, please contact Stuart.
