The UK political party conferences have seen health hotels and transport hubs; now it is time for TechCentral. An initiative from the teams behind MessageSpace and Big Brother Watch, TechCentral is putting technology and digital policy firmly on the party conference agenda for the first time.

With key players in the industry, including TalkTalk, Microsoft, EE, Facebook and a host of NGOs and start-ups, showcasing fringe meetings, debates, interactive experiences and workshops, TechCentral promises to be an exciting addition to the party conference season.

Conveniently placed in a marquee within the secure zone at the Labour and Conservative conferences and in the conference centre at the Liberal Democrat conference, TechCentral offers MPs, delegates, campaigners and journalists the chance to debate and explore tech and digital policy. MPs and candidates will also have the chance to brush up on their social media skills ahead of the general election through a series of workshops.

Emma Carr, co-founder of TechCentral says: “How technology and data are used can fundamentally improve the way that our country, and indeed the world, functions. Yet far more can be done to ensure that technology policy making is better informed and it is this that lies at the heart of TechCentral. We’re very pleased to have significant players in the digital industry supporting the project in its first year. The conferences will feature sessions on social media training for the general election and fringes on digital policy, all of which we very much hope the delegates will enjoy.”

TechCentral will be kitted out with free Wi-Fi from EE, the Facebook Geni Bar, live conference feed and a bloggers lounge (when fringes are not taking place).
