Three-days worth of speakers are set to take part in the annual meeting from 25-28 February, which this year sees conservative lawmakers, activists and Republican Party officials converge in Orlando, Florida.
Former President Donald Trump will speak at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday, in what will be his first public speech since leaving office on 20 January.
Mike Pence, the former vice president, reportedly turned down an invitation to speak at CPAC, while the Republican senate minority leader Mitch McConnell reportedly received no invitation at all.
It follows recent criticism of Mr Trump’s role in the 6 January insurrection on the US Capitol, and a behind-the-scenes power struggle among Republicans in Congress.
The event kicked off on Friday with an address from Florida governor Ron DeSantis, while Texas senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump Jr also set to speak at the conference later in the day.
When is Donald Trump speaking?
Donald Trump will be the keynote speaker at the conference this year and will address the attendees in Orlando on Sunday afternoon.
Mr Trump is expected to take to the stage at around 3:40pm (EST) on Sunday, where he is rumoured to announce plans to run for president in 2024.

All of the speeches will be live streamed on Independent TV, and on the CPAC 2021 website under the “Watch Live” tab, while certain high profile speeches are expected to be carried on a number of US networks, such as Fox News and CNN, throughout the weekend.
