The fringe events were called the ‘Fraud Fringe’ and took place at Labour, Conservative and the Scottish National Party conferences. Partners included Chartered Trading Standards Institute, Age UK, British Bankers Association, Financial Fraud Action UK, Federation of Communications Services and Connect Communications. Speakers at these events included the Policing Minister, Brandon Lewis MP, and the Scottish Justice Secretary, Michael Matheson MSP. The Fraud Fringe won the Best Fringe Event category
