The Industrial Conference, January 30–February 4, 1931
The first major occasion on which the new leaders of Vesenkha presented themselves in public was the ‘First Ail-Union Conference of Employees (rabotniki) of Socialist Industry’, held in Moscow from January 30 to February 4, 1931.  The conference, convened in the hall of the House of Trade Unions in which the Industrial Party trial had taken place two months previously, was attended by over 700 industrial officials and factory managers, mainly party members of long standing.  The sole item for discussion was ‘The control figures of Vesenkha- planned industry for 1931 and the tasks of economic managers’. The conference differed radically in content and style from the preceding public discussions about the economy.
