Liberal Democrats

Autumn Conference


Autumn Conference 2020

Brighton: 26-29 September 2020

(registration will open June 2020)



Plans for Liberal Democrat Autumn Conference on hold, online options to be explored instead

In the light of the coronavirus epidemic, the Federal Board has decided to put on hold plans for the preparation of a traditional party conference in the autumn and will make a final decision on whether to cancel the event in May.

In the meantime, the Federal Conference Committee will consider the feasibility of an online event, which might include some elements of a formal conference. Part of that will be the way in which the key elements of party accountability might operate online if a traditional party conference did not go ahead.

A final decision will be made in May once those plans have been developed, taking into account both what is practical to organise online and the latest state of public health advice about large groups gathering together.

In the meantime, party members, supporters and other attendees are advised against booking any travel or accommodation for Autumn Conference.
