Annual Conference & Exhibition

The most important annual event for anyone involved in pensions, attracting 1,500 top industry professionals and over 80 exhibition stands.

Everything is changing – or so it seems. The way we live, work, save and retire will never be the same again. The speakers and discussions at the PLSA Annual Conference and Exhibition will help our delegates to decode the future – to understand the forces shaping it and how to respond to them.

Programme highlights include Professor Lynda Gratton, author of ‘The 100-year Life’, who will lead a debate on how increasing longevity will transform society. ‘Gig economy’ expert Matthew Taylor will explain why the Government should accept his recommendations on helping workers in this growing sector to save. Journalist Matt Frei will help us make sense of global politics, business and economics. And a series of leaders from pensions and government will set out their plans for the future – and debate them with our delegates.

The event attracts trustees, pension managers and finance directors who control assets worth billions of pounds to HR specialists responsible for workforces of thousands of people, the delegates are made up of the most important pension decision makers in the country.

The conference includes keynote speeches, streamed focus sessions, fringe meetings, a Trustee Learning Zone, networking events and an exhibition. 

New for 2017 – we will be hosting a drinks reception in the exhibition hall.  For regular attendees of the conference this replaces the traditional Conference Gala Dinner which we hope will be a better way for delegates to do the networking they value. Join us for a lovely evening of drinks, food and a few surprises!
