As in previous years, the Conservative Muslim Forum was well represented at the Conservative Party Conference 2016 in Birmingham from 2-5 October.
Our presence was anchored on our stand in the Party Zone of the exhibition area. The stand makes it very easy for people to come and meet us, and we signed up a number of new CMF Members. We have now created a photo album on Facebook at this link with photographs of some of our many visitors.
Apart from the main auditorium, the Party Conference always features a large number of fringe meetings, both inside and outside the security zone. As well as hearing from the varied speakers, these meetings also give you the opportunity to ask questions, and often to talk informally with the speakers before and after the meetings.
Overall, the Party Conference is an outstanding networking opportunity. If you have never attended, we strongly recommend doing so. Next year, the Party Conference will be in Manchester in the same broad time period. The CMF expects to be there in force again.
