This forum is an opportunity for you to express your views and receive updates on the WELS scheme. The forum is open to all stakeholders including: businesses, industry associations, government representatives, consumer groups and conservation organisations.

So that we provide sufficient catering and seating for attendees, please RSVP as soon as possible. Please advise if you have any special dietary requirements.

The intent of this year's forum is to discuss progress with the scheme in all key areas of activity during the past two years and, in particular, to engage with stakeholders about the outcomes of the recent independent review of the scheme (Guest Review), issues raised, and next steps in setting final response arrangements.
