It’s that time of year again…
Every autumn at the party conferences, the New Statesman teams up with dozens of partners and sponsors to deliver high-quality fringe events attracting some of the biggest names in politics and business. Last year saw the New Statesman host over 35 events across four conferences, bringing together policymakers and thought leaders for discussion and debate. With expert panels, Q&As and drinks receptions attended by leading parliamentarians from all sides of the House, New Statesman fringe events are at the cutting edge of the conference calendar.
This year’s conferences look set to be as exciting and unpredictable as any following a year of upsets and momentous changes in the UK political scene. The New Statesman will be there to bring together politicians and high-profile figures in local government, charities, NGOs and industry, to discuss the most pressing policy issues and political topics of the day.
