South West Regional Conference

On Saturday 29th February 2020, the Co-operative Party's South West regional conference will take place in Bristol.

There will be a particular focus on some of the big challenges our economy and communities face across the region, a spotlight on policy, as well as showcasing  co-operative solutions that can be expanded and supported to build the fairer future we so desperately need. Sessions will include:

  • Accountability & Corporate Governance:  short speeches from industry figures, followed by panel debate and Q&A in order to develop policy submissions and proposals for debate in 2020.
  • Community Business & Co-operative GrowthQ&A with representatives from successful local independent co-ops (in association with Power to Change)
  • Connectivity (in telecoms & transport): short speeches from industry figures, followed by panel debate and Q&A in order to develop policy submissions and proposals for debate in 2020.
  • Being a Councillor:  candidate nominations, manifesto ideas and support (in association with Community the Union)
  • Co-operative Party campaigning: launching the Party’s 2020 campaign on community safety

Travel

The nearest mainline train station is Bristol Temple Meads Train Station.  From there, you can  travel by bus number 8 - which runs every 10 minutes from the station - and travels through via the Centre, Park Street and Clifton Triangle and stops directly outside of Engineers’ House. The bus fare is £2 per journey.

Those travel by car are met by venue car parking attendants when they arrive. Our onsite car parking spaces are firstly reserved for disabled attendees. The attendant will either park attendees in a reserved parking bay or advise them that they need to collect a parking permit.
