Upcoming RED Talks

Rural Economic Development Talks, better known as RED Talks, began in 2020 to address the issues the rural economy and allied industries were facing from a global pandemic and the UK’s exit from the European Union. Positive and action-oriented in outlook, the Talks have been attended by over 1000 businesses from 25 countries worldwide for their unique combination of political and macroeconomic overviews, industry insight and sustainable finance and business advice.

RED Talks are held on Zoom and last between an hour and 90 minutes. The debates are too interesting to curtail! We bring together the best minds in politics, economics, business, finance, academia, medicine and science to discuss the big issues of the day and support rural leaders to find and seize opportunities for sustainable progress and growth. Following a series of short, snappy briefings from a thoughtfully selected panel of experts, the floor is opened to questions and comments from the audience so we can tailor the session to what you need.


Farming for the Environment

Farming for the Environment

RPG convenes a panel of food’s most innovative thinkers to discuss what the future holds for Britain’s farmers, growers and producers as every part of society seeks to become more sustainable. We explore the new technologies that could revolutionise the fruit industry, increase the UK’s self-sufficiency and boost profitability of food businesses, all while protecting the country from climate change and economic shocks. We also ask how the fruit industry would prepare to take another technological and environmental leap forward and how it can be best supported.
This RED Talk will be hosted live as part of the National Fruit Show Conference. We would encourage participation in person – questions will be taken from the audience. If you are unable to attend the Kent Showground (just off the M20), a recording will be available after the event.
