The ‘fringe’ is the term used for the many individual events that take place around the main conference. Hundreds of organisations host a range of events including seminars, debates, workshops and receptions across the conference site and the host city.
It’s a great opportunity for organisations to reach a wide audience. Annual Conference delegates, commercial visitors, MPs and other key decision makers make for lively and dynamic discussion on a huge range of topics. Booking your event directly through the Labour Party enables you to take advantage of a full fringe package including:
- Maximum impact by holding your event inside the Conference Zone
- Complimentary passes to Conference
- Discounted fringe listings
- AV and on-site support service
- Priority advertising slots
- Conference Team to provide advice and support every step of the way

How do I arrange a fringe event?
1. Book a space
Organising a fringe event is very simple. Once you have an idea of the style of event, target audience and logistical details – such as preferred day and time – you can submit an online request at www.labevents.org/ac2019fringe
Space in the Conference Zone is always in high demand so we recommend you submit your fringe requests as soon as possible. We are also able to offer fringe space outside the main Conference Zone in nearby hotels and venues.
Please note: the deadline for booking events is Friday 13 March 2020. If you still want to hold fringe events after this date, please contact the Conference Team on 0345 092 3311.
2. Order your requirements
Once your space is confirmed, we can help you organise all aspects of your event and successfully promote it. If you have booked space with us, you will receive via email a link to book all your additional fringe requirements such as listings and audio visual equipment (AV). If you haven’t booked space with us, call the Conference Team on 0345 092 3311 to discuss any other ways we can assist with your event.
