In this talk, we introduce Cartan geometries which are spaces that are locally modeled on homogeneous spaces. We express what conformal geometries are in this language and then move on to study signature (2,3) conformal geometry with holonomy in the split form of G_2 . The exposition will mainly follow chapters 4 and 5.
