The Conservative Party’s Spring Conference is set to return to Blackpool’s Winter Gardens starting on Friday 18th March – and then running through the weekend. This will be the first time the Conservative Party has hosted a major conference in Blackpool since 2007.
Blackpool South MP Scott Benton has welcomed his party’s plans to hold its 2022 Spring Conference in Blackpool, saying, ‘I can’t wait for the Spring Conference, and I am so pleased that it is returning to Blackpool. I look forward to welcoming senior Party figures to the town, to showcase what a wonderful place we have here. I hope to convince the Party to hold many more events in Blackpool in the years to come.’
Visit Blackpool has estimated that the event will be worth £2.4m to the local economy.
