Your one-stop online guide to Lib Dem conference events – we’ve got an app for that

by Stephen Tall on September 19, 2012

The Lib Dem conference guide is my political-geek equivalent of the Christmas Radio Times, thumbing through it in anticipation, circling the must-watch events, worrying about all the clashes of things I want to see.

But just as PVRs and Sky+ mean I no longer fret about missing my fave programmes so have our advertising partners MessageSpace developed an online guide – FringeList – which contains every event taking place: when, where, who’s speaking, and who’s attending.

You can search for particular speakers (including who’s speaking most often), find out which are the most popular events, and create your own personalised schedule of events you’ll definitely be attending. (Here’s mine.)

But perhaps the most useful part (at least for those like me who’ll be permanently glued to their smartphones) is that FringeList is also an app for iPhone and Android with a Blackberry optimised site for those who’ll spend their conference.

Oh, were you wanting the website address? It’s here:
