Applying for fringes and panels at Conference

The formal part of conference consists of plenary sessions and workshops on motions devoted to policy making and organisational issues, but there are also various fringe and panel sessions on topical issues and members can apply to run fringes on topics of their choosing. 

 

Fringes: These can be run by members, staff or external organisations and are usually educational or informative rather than directly related to policy, and are held in the breakout rooms. There are always more applications than slots available so they are prioritised according to relevance to the conference theme, topicality, quality of application, etc.
Please submit your application using this webform. The deadline has been extended to 24 January.


Panels
: A panel of expert speakers, often from outside the party, debating a particular topic, usually followed by questions from the floor. These sessions are open to the public and are usually held in the main hall.
