Keynote speaker will be Martin Giles from Sweden who will explain how the problem is tackled in his country. Adding to the line up will be Brian Johnson of ENCAMS, Eugene Baston of British Waterways, Stephen Gordon of Scottish Heritage and chief superintendent Ronald Pearce of West Midlands Police.
The conference has already attracted delegates from all over the UK and abroad, but places are now at a premium, so anyone interested should register very quickly to avoid disappointment.
Local authorities throughout the country have been invited to send delegates as graffiti is a problem in all major towns and cities nationwide. Full details of the conference and on-line reservation forms are available on Sheffield City Council's website.
The conference will be hosted by Sheffield City Council on behalf of the Anti-Graffiti Association. Delegate fees for the conference will be held at just£75 (or£50 for members of the Association) to include lunch and refreshments during the day.
Harry Harpham, the council's cabinet member for Streetscene commented: 'It's really encouraging to have such an excellent response to the first national conference of this kind and we are looking forward to welcoming delegates for this prestigious event.
'We have planned an intensive agenda for the day, with a number of excellent speakers. Any local authority taking the problems of graffiti control seriously should invest in sending a delegat e to this conference.'
