Labour Party Annual Conference 2021

This weekend the Labour Party heads to Brighton for it’s first in-person conference since 2019, following the virtual Labour Connected event last year.

Spanning five days from 25 -29 September, Labour Conference 2021 will welcome thousands of delegates and members. On Wednesday, Keir Starmer will address annual conference for his first time as Leader of the Labour Party.

The vibrant conference exhibition continues to grow, with new exhibitors including Eon, Key Cities Salford, News UK, Thakeham, Tibet House, Institute of Physics, Sue Ryder Care and Covid Families for Justice. EON last exhibited in 2011.

There are many familiar faces on stands, Guide Dogs, Cancer Research, British Red Cross, Falklands, Gibraltar, Royal Mail, Sky and Global.

The Business Relations team organises a series of engagement events throughout the Conference week. The Business Forum at Conference is our flagship engagement event and attracts hundreds of paying guests each year.

The Business Forum is followed by the Business and International reception in the evening, a free event for all commercial guests to conference. The event has grown substantially over the years and now attracts around 500 guests.

The health and safety of all of those who attend and work at Annual Conference is of the utmost importance to the Labour Party. We will continue to play our part in society’s efforts to tackle this global challenge, while moving forward with the constitutional requirements of holding the Annual Conference in person this year.

 

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour Party Chair, said:

“It’s such a pleasure to welcome everyone to the Labour Party Conference again. After two years, it’s wonderful that our Labour family can gather in person once more.

“The last eighteen months have been a challenge like no other, but the way Britain responded showed that we can achieve incredible things when we come together.

“Our country is now at a crossroads. We can go back to the same, insecure, unfair economy the Conservatives created. Or we can choose a greener, fairer and more secure Britain under Labour.

“Let’s build a stronger future together that everyone in Britain can be proud of.”
