Conservative Party Conference

Sunday 30th September 2018 – Wednesday 3rd October 2018

    The Centre for Policy Studies has a long history of attending Conservative Party Conference, and our presence at this year's event in Birmingham will be bigger than ever before. 

    We have a large, dedicated and prominent events space within the secure zone this year where we will be hosting a vast array of fringe events throughout conference, including receptions, panel discussions and one-on-ones. Ideas will be discussed, policy reviewed and views exchanged across a variety of policy areas including housing, business, tax and welfare.

    We have a fantastic line up of speakers, including prominent politicians and experienced business people, each of whom will bring unrivaled insight and expertise to each of our discussions. 

    We are in the process of confirming our events, below is our current events schedule with more speakers to be added throughout the summer.
