Parliament & Internet is an annual conference to discuss Internet policy and inform policymakers by bringing together Government, Parliamentarians, officials, business and  civil society. It is a platform where thought leaders debate important technology issues that shape legislative policy in an open forum.

The stimulus for Parliament & Internet came from UK members of Parliament  with a keen interest in the Internet who visited Washington DC between 2003 and 2006 and spoke at the US Congressional Internet Caucus. It was felt that a similar regular open dialogue was needed in the UK. The first Parliament & Internet conference was held in the Houses of Parliament in October 2006 and has become a key event each year since for those interested in discussing Internet policy.

The conference is organised by ISPA UK, the UK’s Trade Association for providers of internet services.
