Annual Conference 2021

Ready, (Re)Set, Go!

We’re getting back on track, but what lies ahead? At this year’s PLSA Annual Conference we’ll be asking what the road to economic recovery looks like, analysing the hurdles for pensions and revealing the opportunities to lead the race.

We are the UK’s number one pensions conference, welcoming 1,000 pension professionals to a three‐day online extravaganza of world‐class keynotes, educational sessions, topic deep‐dives and digital networking. Together we’ll explore the latest ideas, developments and challenges, discover practical tools and fresh opinion, and network with new and old contacts alike.

Join us at the PLSA Annual Conference to get ready, re(set), go for pensions in a post-Covid world.

New online Platform for 2021 

  • Meet the right people with networking and matchmaking powered by artificial intelligence. 
  • Hold 1-1 video calls, online meetings and demos and group chats.  
  • Be active in sessions with chat, polls and audience response tools.  
  • Create your own schedule with reminders and catch-up when you want with on-demand content.
