  • Chester Suite - Midland Hotel 16 Peter St Manchester United Kingdom (map)

The Adam Smith Institute are hosting a series of panel discussions and debates at the Conservative Party Conference 2019 that are free to attend for any Conservative Party Conference attendees. To find out more, email

The UK is on the brink of gaining control of its trade policy. In order to capitalise on the opportunities of Brexit, the UK must be outward looking and embrace free trade with the rest of the world, especially countries with which we have a longstanding relationship. This panel will discuss the imminent possibilities of free trade arrangements with the USA, as well as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand (CANZUK), and how global free trade can deliver the best outcomes for the citizens of the UK.


Matthew Kilcoyne, Head of Communications, Adam Smith Institute (chair)
The Hon George Brandis QC, Australian High Commissioner
The Rt Hon Sir Jerry Mateparae, New Zealand High Commissioner (invited)
Dr Ted Bromund, Senior Research Fellow in Anglo-American Relations, The Heritage Foundation

More speakers to be announced shortly…

It's sure to be an interesting discussion, and we hope you'll be around to see it. We're hosting it inside the Secure Zone (so you'll need a conference pass) in the Chester Suite of the Midland Hotel. All of our other events will also be in the Chester Suite!

The event's free to attend, no need to RSVP, just turn up at 6:00pm.
