It’s that time of year again…
A balmy summer is coming to an end, the party conference season is just beginning, and the New Statesman is teaming up with dozens of partners and sponsors to deliver a huge range of fringe events attracting some of the biggest names in parliament, politics and business. Last year we hosted over 35 events across three conferences, bringing together policymakers and thought leaders for hours of enlightening and intelligent discussion and debate. Hosting MPs and peers from all sides of the House, we've organised panels of experts, Q&As and drinks receptions that are at the cutting edge of the conference calendar.
After yet another year of upsets and volatility in the UK political scene, this year's conferences are set to be as exciting and unpredictable as any, and the New Statesman will be at the forefront, bringing together politicians and high-profile figures in local government, charities, NGOs and industry, to discuss the most pressing policy issues and political controversies of the day.
