Annual Conference is the Co-operative Party’s showcase of co-operative politics and the largest political online gathering of the year for the UK co‑operative movement.  Conference brings together hundreds of members and supporters from across the UK to debate policy, hear from speakers in the co-operative and labour movements, and help shape our work and campaigns in the year ahead.

The Conference marketplace highlights our partner organisations from across the co‑operative movement, from local community co‑ops to national bodies.

For those new to the Party, Conference is a great introduction to the work of the Party and that of the wider co‑operative movement. For long-standing members, it’s a chance to shape the Party’s work and policy direction, catch up with old friends and develop new skills.
