Update on One Day Conference

Our first one-day conference took place on Saturday in South London, attracting over 70 activists. The event started at 10am with a coffee reception and a welcome introduction before the main speeches began. The audience listened to speeches from Ministers, a Secretary of State, a PPS and a newly elected MP. After a buffet lunch followed by a few glasses of wine, delegates questioned speakers and spoke frankly about what policies they wanted to see from the party over the next few years.

Guests included Conservative Future members who had travelled from Birmingham and Suffolk to meet the speakers and network with other young Conservatives. The event attracted key speakers including Immigration Minister, Damian Green; Decentralisation Minister, Greg Clark; David Evenett; PPS to Michael Gove; Licensing Secretary, James Brokenshire and local Croydon Central MP Gavin Barwell.

Our conference was the first in a series that was held and due to its success we are planning to hold another one before Christmas and several others in the first half on next year across the country.

Please contact me if you think that we will be able to host a similar event in your region at:

Thank you to our activists who attended and for those who joined us in the pub afterwards!
