The Cremation Society and the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities are delighted to be working together to present this year’s CBCE event which runs from 26-28 June at the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton.
The burial and cremation sector faces a time of considerable structural and operational change. With the work of the Law Commission looking at the law surrounding the disposal of the dead, the review of the Process Guidance notes for crematoria, the ongoing monitoring of the funeral sector by the CMA, a significant increase in direct cremations, the ongoing development of new means of disposal and the ever increasing to address environmental issues.
These issues alone mean that the sector needs to be prepared to deal with new and demanding challenges.
CBCE 2023 brings together experts and keynote speakers to discuss some of the significant developments that the sector will have to tackle. This key annual event provides a unique opportunity to acquire the most up-to-date information, as well as provide opportunity to meet with exhibitors to discuss their latest services and products.
