Why attend?

One of the defining features of the Liberal Democrats is that we have a democratic conference with one member, one vote.

We discuss and debate policy together and party officers and Parliamentarians are held to account.

This year's conference will be bigger and more open than ever before with members joining us virtually from across the globe.

If you want to debate big ideas, listen to passionate speakers, hear from experts on every topic under the sun, learn new skills, or just make new friends who share your values, then conference is the place for you.
