Our Sponsors for 2023:
AnManCon or the Animal Management Conference is the 1st conference to target AnMan at the FE and HE level. It's an opportunity for delivery staff & other stakeholders interested, to contribute and network to develop their practice and sector together at a great event.
AnManCon allows a mixture of professionals from the animal sector to discuss the training of future professionals. Open the tabs below to find out more.
The goal of this event is to bring the animal management sector together. FE delivery staff, Industry, and HE. By shortening the distance of communication, we can truly work on the sector from the ground up, developing our students, or rather our future animal management professionals.
