2018 Winter conference - Exhibition


Just 10 exhibition spaces are available at the CUBO winter conference, an exclusive event that draws around 50 CUBO members working in senior roles in higher education commercial services.

The exhibition takes place on the ground floor of Cloth Hall Court, where delegates have breakfast, lunches and coffee breaks, and where the evening event - Brewdog Beer School, Drinks Reception and Winter Conference Dinner - will be happening. Exhibitors are welcome to attend the conference sessions as well, so there are plenty of opportunities for business meetings and informal networking. The exhibition level is also the scene of the final day’s charity rowing event!
