Book now for cheap Conference rates

An email from the Conference office reminds us:

It may not feel like it, but spring is just around the corner and that means the Liberal Democrats Spring Conference in Harrogate is fast approaching. Early signs indicate that this is set to be our biggest spring conference yet, so if you’ve not had a chance to register, book your place now! (And if you’ve already registered, thank you!)

This is your last chance to save up to 30% on registration rates. Register online before 21 January to take advantage of fantastic offers. And why not save yourself time and money by registering jointly for both Spring and Autumn conferences for just £90? This offer is only available before 21 January so don’t delay!

Finally, it’s not too late to join Nick Clegg and Vince Cable in discussing how the Liberal Democrats can create a more progressive society. This members-only, one day conference in London on Saturday 17 January promises to be a stimulating day. So if you’ve yet to book your place, a full updated agenda, including details of all breakout sessions and how to register, is available at the one day conference website.

  • At a total cost of around £330 for registration and accomodation (before any transport or food is taken into account) I think not! How can the party really justify these prices just now?!

    In all seriousness, I’d love to attend, but I just can’t afford it even though I’m in a reasonably well paid job, as is my wife. I don’t qualify for any of the discounts, so unless I win the lottery between now and then I’ll be staying at home.

    It does raise the question though – isn’t there a better way of approving and forming policy? Most Lib Dems are reasonably PC literate – couldn’t we use a forum like this (for members only, of course) to create policy?

  • At a total cost of around £330 for registration and accomodation….

    But only £90 of that is in the party’s control so the scope for party action is limited. I don’t know what accomodation costs – accomodation costs tend to rise when we book our conference as hoteliers aren’t stupid!

    That said if your getting your accomodation for £240 for both spring and Autumn conferences your doing pretty well.

  • Hywel, that’s still £90 though, and when you consider I’m in Scotland and have to add on travel simply to get there, it’s just too much.

    It’s why I think we need to look at different methods and/or venues, as I suggested. For example, why is the one day conference in London? Why not in Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester or Edinburgh? Why not do it though this type of method – there’s some pretty good debates on here.
