#Icon19 is core to Icon’s vital work of sharing best practice and research to champion high standards in conservation across the UK and Internationally. 

There will be no other conservation event on this scale in the UK for the ensuing three years, making this the pinnacle opportunity for knowledge exchange and networking opportunities.
