Public Finance Live 2019


The leading public finance event of the year essential for all those who deal with, and are interested in, the management of the public’s money.

CIPFA’s public finance conference 2019, in association with CIMA, tackles the key questions for government and public services in the decade ahead.

Hear from leading figures from across politics, the public sector, the commercial world and thought leaders will come together to examine how we can ensure strong and sustainable institutions and public services.
