2019 Summer conference - Why attend
Share |

Why attend?

The CUBO Summer Conference is time well spent: three days and two evenings away from the office, catching up with over 200 senior HE commercial colleagues and partners while investing in your own professional development.


It's the place to gather new ideas, share experiences, find solutions and build relationships with peers that will continue through the year;  to join conference sessions that challenge, inspire and inform your professional thinking;  to hear and comment on CUBO's strategy to champion the commercial role in higher education and improve membership benefits;  and to recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements in our profession in 2019.

The content was challenging, thought-provoking and useful. There were lots of opportunities to network and informally share ideas, which is really important.
