I am delighted to invite you to the Welsh Liberal Democrat Spring Conference 2023.
Following our return to in-person events this Conference promises to be packed with policy debates, fringe events, receptions and many networking opportunities for you and your organisation to meet with parliamentarians, councillors, candidates and members from across Wales.
It will be taking place at UWTSD’s IQ Building in Swansea on the weekend of 25th and 26th March.
As we start to prepare for the next Westminster election this conference is an ideal opportunity for you and your organisation to engage us in discussions on the issues facing Wales.
Fringe events and exhibition stands provide an opportunity for you to pitch your ideas and let Welsh Liberal Democrat members find out more about your organisation’s key campaigns. Be sure to book early as spaces are limited!
As always our Conference Dinner, which will be taking place at the Dylan Thomas Centre on the evening of Saturday 25th March, provides an opportunity for informal networking, as well as to hear from some amazing guest speakers.
You can find out more about the opportunities available to you on the following pages, and you can book your place online.
We are here to help you get the most out of our conference. Please feel free to contact our Acting Operations Director, Elgan Morgan, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your options.
I look forward to seeing you in Swansea.
Jane Dodds MS
Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats
