The Green Party has confirmed it will hold its Autumn Conference at Bournemouth International Centre, 25-28 September 2015. It will be the first visit to Bournemouth for the conference and it is anticipated that up to 2,000 will attend over four days.
The conference comes a week after the Liberal Democrat Party Conference, and will make full use of the venue’s main halls and hospitality areas, with the plenary in the Windsor Hall, an exhibition in the Solent Hall, and guest hospitality and fringe meetings in private suites, open plan areas and meeting rooms.
“We are extremely proud that the Green Party has chosen to come to Bournemouth,” says BH Live Director of Venues Pat Coyne. “Bournemouth International Centre is a popular venue for major conferences due to its capacity, flexibility and great location. We offer a safe, relaxed and welcoming destination for members to convene, debate and form policies.”
“We’ve experienced unprecedented growth in our numbers during this election year,” says Louisa Greenbaum, Green Party conferences and events co-ordinator. “After record attendance at our Spring Conference in Liverpool earlier this year, we are now planning for up to 2,000 members to attend this Autumn. Apart from its capacity and choice of spaces, the venue is a good choice for us as it has solid environmental credentials reflected in, for example, its impressive energy use management and sustainable catering provision.”
The Green Party Conference is first of a number of major events booked through Business Events Bournemouth, the town’s conference destination marketing, venue finding and delegate accommodation service launched in 2014.
