What previous delegates said...

“I thoroughly enjoyed attending the hee forum, learned a lot and had some really meaningful conversations and discovered products that I shall take back and share with my team. It has been a very informative and worthwhile use of my time. ”

CW - WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff

“It was my first time at the hee forum; I found it really worthwhile and was introduced to some interesting products, some of which really surprised me. I will definitely have further meetings as a result including visiting the buildings that some of the architects I met have been involved with. I would never have these kinds of meetings in my normal day to day working day - it's simply not something I find time to do. I've been impressed with how well organised it has been, 22 meetings in two days is no mean feat! ”

V.M – Lancaster University

“A great event to meet like-minded colleagues and suppliers. ”

RP - St. John’s College

“This is how it should be done....”

A.M - J M Architects

“An array of excellent suppliers attended hee - some brand new to us but also the odd one we have lost the relationship with, but now we will be doing more work with those suppliers, too. ”

G.B – SpaceZero

“A good event format, well organised, good variety of Suppliers and Project delegates and a worthwhile opportunity for networking and discussion. I will be attending again next year! ”


“Continues to improve year on year, in terms of content and contacts. I look forward to attending again next year. ”

A.T – Stantec

“The relaxed atmosphere induced good networking and an interest in finding our what each other were doing. The lack of reserve was refreshing and profitable conversation resulted.”

J.M – desM Ltd

“A great event to meet like minded people, potential clients and learn about innovations in the industry to aid current and future projects. The forum literature and structure allowed me to identify and meet people relevant to me, in a relaxed environment to gain maximum benefit over the two days. A fun and exciting way to do business.”

T.M – Calfordseaden

“I found the Higher Education Estates Forum 2016 to be of real benefit to our organization and provided me with an opportunity to discuss numerous products which are new to the market. In addition to providing general networking opportunities and exposure for our business, the speaker sessions provided excellent 'thought leadership' demonstrating the current thinking within our sector. ”

J.T – Capita Property & Infrastructure

“As a major client who conducts most business with main contractors and consultant teams, this was a welcome opportunity to meet with lower tier supply chain members. In particular the opportunity to gain insight into products and services that are available in the market and knowledge of which will enhance our discussions with contractors and consultants when setting specifications for major projects was very useful. I would certainly recommend this event to HE estates colleagues. ”
