Organise a fringe meeting

Run a fringe event and get your campaign promoted and talked about.

TUC Congress has a vibrant and packed fringe with a wide range of external organisations hosting and attending to debate key issues for the trade union movement in the UK and around the world.

Many unions and other external organisations will also host drinks reception events in the evenings for delegates to network and hear from about the organisation's aim, key campaigns and activity. Fringe meetings, receptions and other events can be run from Sunday evening.

The full fringe list will be published on the TUC website before Congress starts and emailed out to delegates before and during Congress.

The options are:

  • Various evening slots on Sunday (6.30pm - 8.00pm)
  • A lunchtime slot on Monday and Tuesday (12.45-2.00pm)
  • A choice of evening slots on Monday and Tuesday (5.45pm - 7.15pm)

There are also opportunities to hire space for union delegate meetings or briefings at any time during Congress. If you would like to find out more about how book a fringe meeting, to become exhibitor or any further information, please email us at

Fringe and meeting rooms will include a basic AV package of top-table microphones and amplification. Anything additional, for example a projector and technician, will be charged, and details of how to arrange that will be given once the booking is made.
