RIA at Party Conference

Party Conferences are a key part of the political calendar, offering an opportunity to meet Ministers, Shadow Ministers and MPs.

We will be holding a policy-focused interview with a key Transport Minister / Shadow Minister on the Sunday's and a Drinks Reception on the Monday's.
