International Cremation & Burial Conference & Exhibition 2015

Monday 6th, Tuesday 7th & Wednesday 8th July 2015 – Holiday Inn, Stratford-upon-Avon

We are pleased to announce details of this now well-established and highly regarded event on the annual conference calendar. It has again been organised in partnership with the Cremation Society of Great Britain, the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities and the Association of Private Crematoria and Cemeteries.

This year we are delighted to announce that the International Cremation Federation (ICF) has decided to incorporate its General Council Meeting with our conference and exhibition. This will bring an added international dimension to the conference.

It provides an opportunity to learn about international developments and how our overseas colleagues approach and deal with these and problems that we face in the United Kingdom.

Continuing the on-going co-operation of like-minded organisations the programme will contain presentations on important issues to all those in the death care industry. It will be of particular interest to representatives from cremation and burial authorities who wish to keep abreast of the latest developments affecting their services and facilities.

The Conference Organisers are pleased to confirm that the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Certification Service has granted accreditation in principle for this year's event. This will allow delegates to demonstrate to their employers that attendance at the event contributes to their professional development and in some cases helps employees to satisfy their contractual obligation.

We are delighted to be returning to the recently refurbished Holiday Inn Stratford-upon-Avon. Situated on the River Avon and set in beautiful landscaped gardens, the Holiday Inn Stratford-upon-Avon is the perfect location for discovering the delights of Shakespeare's birthplace, while other local attractions and historical sites are within walking distance. The hotel is within easy reach of J15 off the M40 and 20 miles from Birmingham airport and the NEC and only a short drive from the amazing Warwick Castle.

Conscious of the continuing difficult economic climate in which all sectors are having to operate, we have negotiated an extremely competitive delegate fee which is inclusive of THREE nights' accommodation. This fee is extremely competitive and provides excellent value when compared to single and multi-day events in the UK. If you've never been to a CBCE event before, or you've had a limited choice of conferences to attend, CBCE is not to be missed. Free car parking is provided for conference delegates throughout the duration of their stay.

Overseas Delegates
This is an opportunity to mix business with pleasure and have the opportunity to experience the beautiful and historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon:

NOTE: The Cremation Society of Great Britain is the founder and pioneer of the cremation movement in the United Kingdom. It established the first crematorium in the UK and is a founder member of the International Cremation Federation. 2015 marks the 140th anniversary of the founding declaration of the Society.

The Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities formed in 1924, represents approximately 90% of all cremation authorities in the United Kingdom and some years ago widened its scope to allow full membership of the FBCA to burial authorities.

The Association of Private Crematoria and Cemeteries represents private crematoria in the UK. Nearly all new crematoria are being established by the private sector.
