In this talk we will discuss about a generic action principle that can be applied to construct invariant actions in conformal supergravity. We will see how well known invariant action such as the N=2 chiral density formula can be derived using this principle. We will further use the principle to derive a new density formula in N=2 conformal supergravity and we will discuss how this can be applied to construct new couplings of tensor multiplet to N=2 conformal supergravity.
