Conservative Party confirms ICC Wales as host venue for March conference
The Conservative Party has confirmed it will host its 2021 Spring conference in March at ICC Wales.
The conference will host more than 8,000 people and bring more than £20m of economic value to the Newport venue.
Talking to the BBC, ICC chief executive Ian Edwards said the conference would help the sector “as we look to recover from the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic”.
The Conservatives said the spring conference will take place alongside next year's Welsh Tory conference.
Amanda Milling MP, co-chairman of the Conservative Party, said: “I’m delighted to announce that we’ll be coming to Newport for the Conservative Party Spring Conference next year.
“Newport and the whole of Wales play key parts in our plan to level up across the whole United Kingdom and coming to the area reinforces our commitment to the task.”
