About the conference

Poor diet, levels of food waste and intensification of agriculture are key themes in contemporary food research and policy making, yet they can appear disconnected from everyday social practices and the lived experiences of food and food systems. The fourth BSA Food Study Group conference will bring together researchers, practitioners and policy makers to explore this apparent disconnect and showcase the most cutting edge research and practice from within and beyond the sociology of food.

Exhibition Stands from £100 ex. VAT

Our exhibitors play a key role in the conference experience. The exhibition provides a networking space for delegates between papers. Coffee and tea are served as delegates browse the stands and meet the exhibitors. The exhibition runs throughout the conference to ensure that it doesn’t compete with the papers instead it complements them.

This standard option offers a stand in the exhibition along with other sponsors of the conference. The exhibition will be held alongside with the conference catering and poster presentations depending on the space.

The exhibition stands include a table, two chairs, and refreshments for two stand staff.
