The annual conference of the influential group suffered a setback last year when then-Prime Minister Boris Johnson was due to give a keynote speech - but pulled out at the 11th hour so he could go to Ukraine - a move that damaged his standing amongst previously supportive Northern Tory MPs.
The conference is being billed a chance to "shape the Conservative Party’s election offer to the North".
According to its website: "Ministers, MPs, Northern Businesses, Charities, Members, and other important stakeholders will be present to work on ideas, to discuss the issues that really matter to the North, and to build upon the work that has been done by the NRG to date".
