Under Parliamentary rules, All Party Parliamentary Groups including PICTFOR cease to exist for the duration of the pre-election period. Once a new Parliament is elected, we will host an EGM to re-establish the Group. In the meantime, please get in touch with the Secretariat with any questions.

As an official All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) operating in the Houses of Parliament, we bring together Parliamentarians from all parties and both Houses with key players in the internet, communications and technology sectors to engage with the most pressing issues of today and tomorrow.

As evident in our name, we focus on three policy areas: internet, communications and technology. These inspired our logo with each of the three dots representing our related core themes.

Our legacy began over 30 years as the Parliamentary Information Technology Committee (PITCOM). We continue the tradition of innovation and inviting diverse stakeholders to join the conversation by hosting numerous high-level discussions to exchange ideas to strengthen the UK’s position as a leading digital economy.

Benefits of Getting Involved

Get involved in our events and discuss ideas to strengthen the UK’s digital economy. Benefits of getting involved include the following:

  • Play an important role in policymakers understanding of the sector: In today’s dynamic environment, with the internet, tech and comms sectors’ exponential capacity to advance, it is essential for industry to share their vision with policymakers.
  • Play an active role: We facilitate a busy events programme of 1-2 events each month, providing plenty of opportunities to engage.
  • Meet fellow thought-leaders: Those involved comprise a wide range of companies including some of the most well-known international tech companies, national media and communications organisations, some of the most rapidly growing innovative UK-based companies, accelerator and incubator programmes, significant membership organisations, policy makers, and excellent universities.
  • Hear a wide range of views: We enjoy strong parliamentarian engagement which is constantly increasing; we have one of the highest numbers of parliamentarian officers of any APPG and 100 different parliamentarians attended at least one of our events in 2021.
  • Diversify the ways you engage: Our annual programme consists of many different types of events across the year including panel events, roundtable discussions, parliamentary briefings, a Summer Reception and a high-level Annual Dinner.
