Join the Institute of Regulation's flagship conference

A smarter future for UK regulation?

Join us for the flagship event in the Institute of Regulation’s education programme, the Annual Conference 2024. After a highly successful launch in 2023, the UK’s leading conference on regulation returns to address the theme ‘A smarter future for UK regulation?’

Regulation and regulatory practice are changing in response to challenging economic, technological and social pressures. The conference is designed to review the opportunities and risks of the UK government’s smart regulation programme and how regulatory practices need to adapt and change.

Join this professional and expert community to reflect on the issues of the day, consider the future of UK regulation, network with peers, and receive a pre-glimpse into the findings from both Objective’s Data in Regulation survey and Institute of Regulation research.
