CIPFA’s annual conference Public Finance Live will be going virtual across four days – from Monday 19 to Thursday 22 October – allowing you to take part wherever you are, addressing this year’s theme: COVID-19: Road to Recovery. COVID-19 remains an ongoing threat to public health and the immediate future remains uncertain. We have made the decision to move our conference online this year and will be running live online sessions every day, available to view from your workplace or home.

Although we won’t be able to get together in person this year, the opportunity to meet – albeit virtually – and explore the big issues is more important than ever. We look forward exploring online the opportunities and challenges facing the public services in the UK.
