2018 Annual Conference Supporting college marketing professionals for over 30 years!

Hilton Hotel Warwick Monday 26th November 2018

Join us at our 31 Annual Conference at the Hilton Hotel Warwick – celebrate the best st

in college marketing at our unmissable event of the year!

Great reasons to attend… Meet colleagues, share good practice, update your skills and develop your own networks. College marketers have been attending our conference for over 30 years: here are just a few comments from last year’s delegates:

“This is by far the most relevant, informative and useful conference for college marketing professionals I attend each year.”

“The conference is a great way to discuss current issues with those in the same situation. It allows you to take a step back and think.”

“Excellent content and structure – well worth attending. Great networking opportunity too!”

“The conference was very well organised, with a range of speakers that related to our industry.”

“The conference was a great chance to think about my

college’s marketing, away from the office, and pick up lots of tips and best practice from other colleges.”



The programme will be published on our website at as it is finalised during the summer and autumn. It will include a mix of topical plenary sessions for all delegates and a choice of skills-based workshops. You can pre-book your workshop choices in advance if we receive your conference booking by 15th November.
