#ldconf 101 – access to conference fringes and training

Here’s a handy hint if you live near the conference centre in Bournemouth: you do not need to be a registered delegate to attend many of the fringe and training events.

The “Access” rules as set out in the Conference Directory (available for download here) say:

Access to all areas of the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) is possible only with a valid, visible conference photo pass worn with the official lanyard. You will be asked to show your pass when you enter the BIC and you are required to wear the pass with the lanyard visible at all times within the building.

If you are attending a training or fringe session in the Highcliff Marriott, Premier Inn Bournemouth Central, Royal Exeter, Royal Bath, Connaught or Wessex hotels, you may be asked to show a valid conference photo pass or party membership card.

This means that members of the Lib Dems interested in attending fringe or training events outside the main conference hall are free to do so – and don’t need to register as conference delegates.

This year that’s of interest and note to party members living in the extreme south of the country. But in the coming years, when conference moves north to Birmingham and Liverpool this enfranchises a whole new set of Lib Dem members. It’s worth us old conference lags making sure our friends in the North know what they’re entitled to.
