Guide to Party Conference 2018: The workings of Labour and Conservative conference


The Autumn Party conference season is one of the highlights of the UK political calendar, and lobbyists and party members plan their activity at conferences months in advance. One of the primary reasons that conference is so important is because it is one of the key opportunities for party members and stakeholders to influence the policy formulation and direction of the party. Indeed, at Labour Conference, policy motions are voted on the conference floor which bind the party to specific policies. 

With just a few days to go before the main party conferences begin, this guide will help you understand how the two major parties use their conference period as well as the key events to watch out for in the weeks ahead.
