The EDA Annual Convention
14th - 17th November 2018
Dublin Castle


It is with great pleasure that the European Dairy Association, ASSIFONTE and Dairy Industry Ireland, invite you to join the EDA/ASSIFONTE Annual Convention 2018 in Dublin, Ireland.

The title of ‘A Green Future for European Dairy’ has been chosen as the theme of this year’s convention – perfectly fitting in with Ireland’s long-standing and unique grass based dairy system, where sustainable farming, mild climate and luscious landscape lie at the core. This convention will bring together Europe’s most influential thought leaders in the areas of Dairy and Agriculture from across industry and government. Speakers at this convention will include EU Agriculture Commissioner Mr Phil Hogan who will give the key note speech at this year’s European Dairy Platform. The 2018 Green Dairy Convention will not only provide you with enriching presentations from high level speakers and give you an update on key dairy subjects, but also offer you an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues from the European and global dairy sector.

Held within the Printworks conference centre in the historic surroundings of Dublin Castle, you will find yourself in the heart of Dublin City and all it has to offer. With a social programme that will include a drinks reception in the world famous Guinness Storehouse (the home of ‘the black stuff’) and a banquet in the 1,000 year old Viking Christchurch Cathedral, this is a convention that is sure to engage you from start to finish!

On behalf of all involved, we look forward to welcoming you to Dublin!
