State Labor has announced that it will host its next state conference in July 1 and 2 in George Town.

Labor Leader Rebecca White said the party would announced its candidates for the upcoming state election at the conference.

Candidate pre-selection opens in May.

In selecting George Town as the venue for the conference, Ms White said it represented a good opportunity to bring 200 state delegates to the town for a busy winter weekend.

She said the party had made a conscious decision over the past two years to hold its conferences in regional towns which could benefit from hospitality support.
