Your questions answered.

How long is the partnership and when can we sign up?

The partnership agreement is for one year, normally running from 1 February to 31 January, but from 2020 new applications can be accepted quarterly.

We're a small business / start-up. How can we get involved?

If you have eight staff or fewer, we offer a small business package for our summer conference. It doesn't have all the benefits of a partnership but is a great way to test the higher education market - our members are in the market for innovative and new services as well as large contracts. Contact us about the small business package.

Can I just book an exhibition space at the CUBO summer conference?

Exhibiting at the Summer Conference is an exclusive benefit for CUBO Gold, Platinum and Diamond partners and a limited number of small businesses /start-ups. See brochure for full details.
