The SNP will hold a virtual conference over the St Andrew’s Day weekend, the party has announced.
The SNP has confirmed dates for its 86th Annual National Conference, which will take place on Saturday 28, Sunday 29 and Monday 30 November.
The conference will end with a speech from Nicola Sturgeon on St Andrew's Day.
Looking ahead to the three-day virtual event, SNP business convener Kirsten Oswald MP said: “Our ambition is to deliver a large-scale virtual event as close as possible to SNP conference in normal times.
“A great deal of work has gone on behind the scenes with e-conference providers and software developers across the globe, and I am excited about this upcoming event.
“While the coronavirus pandemic has brought a necessary pause to life as it was, it also provides a moment, a unique and unprecedented one, to reimagine our world and the possibilities it offers our nation.
“Conference is our opportunity to meet and discuss our vision – and to restate our commitment to delivering an independent Scotland and endeavour as a party to always put Scotland’s best interests at heart.”
The Scottish Greens have also announced they will hold an online autumn conference, which will take place on 23-25 October.
