As reported in today's Courier, the Scottish Liberal Democrats have chosen Dundee as the venue for their three day Spring Conference in 2013.
I am delighted to learn that my party has decided to again have its party conference in Dundee and all the more pleased that the West Park Centre – right in the middle of the West End Ward – has been chosen at the conference venue, with local hotels such as the Invercarse Hotel and the many high quality guest houses in the area benefitting for the 500-600 people who visit Conference every Spring.
Not only is it great to see Dundee again being chosen by a major political party as its Conference centre, it also represents a substantial boost to the local economy. Delegates will spend money locally and that’s really good for the local area.
Major figures in the Liberal Democrats including members of the coalition government and the Holyrood and Westminster parliamentary parties will attend the conference, taking place from 15th – 17th March 2013.
I’ll be making a point of ensuring that our parliamentarians and other delegates see the great strides forward our city is taking – the success of our universities, the Waterfront and V&A at Dundee developments and so much more. It is great to see our city continually attracting major events so I’ll be looking forward to welcoming my party colleagues to Dundee and its West End next March.
