I Can’t Believe It’s Not The Semex Conference

Semex will host a series of Webinars in early 2021 to carry on its role in setting the tone for the dairy sector for the year ahead despite having to cancel its annual Dairy Conference for the first time in 30 years. 

Titled, I Can’t Believe It’s Not The Semex Conference, the webinars will deliver on the sought-after facts and figures dairy farmers need to navigate their way through the year ahead. 

Michael Dennison, National Sales Manager, Semex UK says, “With the year we have all experienced it is important we kick start the New Year by doing what the Semex Conference does best, bringing together the industry movers and shakers with like-minded dairy farmers.

“With the industry’s most renowned pundits sharing their views, opinions and wisdom the webinars are designed to create debate, challenge beliefs and plug the information void in an entertaining way,” concludes Michael.

Chaired by former conference chairmen, the webinars, which are all free of charge, will be an hour long and be in the format of part presentation and part Q&A to the speakers.

The I Can’t Believe It’s Not The Semex Conference Webinars will take place from January through March 2021.
