The RTPI runs fringe events at the UK wide Labour and Conservative Party Conferences.

The fringe events offer the Institute an opportunity to maintain its high profile with politicians and stakeholders and discuss policy with politicians away from Westminster.

The events are part of the RTPI's ongoing engagement with policy-makers: we also run an extremely popular Parliamentary receptions, produce legislative briefings, and meet Ministers, MPs, MSPs, Peers, and civil servants on a regular basis.
