Fringe Information


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.

With a huge number of fringe events at Conference 2017, fringe events are proving a very popular way to get your message across at Conference.

It's a great opportunity for organisations to reach a wide audience. 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:

o   Maximum impact by holding your event inside the Conference zone
o   Complimentary passes to Conference
o   Discounted fringe listings
o   AV and on-site support service
o   Priority advertising slots
o   Conference Services 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. Fringe applications can be made here.

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 10 March 2017. If you still want to hold fringe events after this date, please contact Conference Services 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 Conference Services to discuss any other ways we can assist with your event.

3. Advertise and promote

Whether you have booked your space with us or directly with an external venue, you may be interested in the many advertising opportunities available to promote fringe events before and during Conference, including:

o   Listings on our Conference website and App
o   Featured event adverts on our Conference website
o   Banner adverts on our website
o   Poster and other promotion opportunities on the Conference site
o   Listings in the Conference Magazine
o   Display adverts in the Conference Magazine
