Annual Convention 23 - agenda
The NPC Annual Convention returns to Blackpool on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th June for two days of discussion and debate on the issues that matter most to older people.
It is the first time we have held our full Convention since before the pandemic — so there is a lot to talk about!
We will have a packed programme with expert speakers and policymakers leading six sessions covering everything from pensions and the cost of living crisis, to health and social care, housing and transport, as well as the impact of our increasingly digital-first world on older people. A provisional agenda can be found below.
Tickets are just £10 for both days or £5 for a single day. To book places for the event, please complete this form
