Conference Live: Focus on Winning

A two day event in York, for activists, campaigners and councillors, with a focus on winning elections. 

This event sits alongside Spring Conference Online. The registration fee to this in person event INCLUDES your registration to the online event. You will be able to watch the virtual conference and take part in votes whilst at the live event (though you will need to bring your own laptop for the speaking and votes). 

Focus on winning will feature: 

  • Training – over 20 hours of campaign training to choose from, delivered by some of our best campaign experts in the country. 
  • Workshop Discussion – your chance to discuss how we campaign and win elections in the future, with structured sessions focussing on all aspects of campaigning. 
  • Social time – time to meet and chat with fellow Lib Dems from across the country. 
  • Working with partners like the Green Liberal Democrats, Young Liberals and the LGA Lib Dem Group to create some great content for the weekend.

Spring Conference Live takes place on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 March 2022 at York Park Inn, York YO1 6JF.

You will need to arrange your own accommodation. The only food included in the ticket price is light refreshments and lunch during the day. You can arrive on Friday night to start promptly on Saturday morning, or make your way to York on Saturday morning. 

Covid and Delegate Safety

To ensure the safety of delegates the event will be run within the Covid safety guidelines that are in place in March 2022. If we are unable to deliver the event because of Covid regulations, a full refund will be given for the residential part of the weekend, with the online registration still valid.

Are you suggesting that we book accommodation at the York Park Inn? Or is that just where the conference is taking place?

Arian Nemati says

Hi Jackie, York Park Inn is where Spring Conference Live will be taking place. Do feel free to enquire about accommodation there though.

Christine Headley says

I booked the Spring Conference online before this was announced. Is there an easy way to come to York without paying registration twice?

Jonathan Hunt says

The whole thing is a total cock-up. Why can't the party HQ and an important section of the party work together to run a singe conference.
Hold the main conference as it always was with people present speaking and voting while others can also participate in the same event online.
As it is, many of us will have to spend some £125 to take part in both. And be seen by the media as incompetent -- as last autumn when we the other two main parties held face-to-face events and we didn't or couldn't.

Arian Nemati says

Hi Jonathan. The sign up fee for ALDC's Conference Live INCLUDES your registration to the online event.

If you have already signed up to the online event but also want to attend Conference Live, please do get in touch with us – either via email ( or phone (0161 302 7532). No one should be paying to spend £125 to take part in both.
