Meet-Connect-Do Business

The ultimate meetings & networking event giving you access to key decision makers

A real opportunity to do business

Being part of the higher education estates forum gives you unprecedented access to a host of key decision-makers involved in the design, build and management of higher education estates and facilities. Over one and half days you’ll benefit from a tailored schedule of one-to-one meetings with your chosen university and college estates professionals, architects, contractors, project managers, FF&E consultants and student accommodation developers.

Estates growth…

Capital expenditure in UK university estate reached £3bn a year for the first time, with funds spent on refurbishing old buildings and also on building newer, more carbon efficient premises to decrease running costs long-term. Continuing investment in infrastructure is essential as the sector has increased its estimation of the amount needed to upgrade its non-residential estate to a sound ‘baseline’ condition. Universities are managing an additional half a million square metres, now 21,900,000m2  at  the same cost of £2bn as three years ago . Four institutions spend £100m each a year; Cambridge, Imperial, UCL and Edinburgh.

Goals for estates departments

Driving efficiency, reducing costs, improving the estate, raising service levels and increasing the commercial income from the estate remain key areas of focus for estates teams.  Our project delegates attending the hee forum are all looking for the solutions, the partners, products and services that help them meet these goals.

Ambitious infrastructure spend plans in higher education makes for a great opportunity for suppliers

In the face of challenging financial conditions, the HE sector wants to invest over £17.8 billion in infrastructure projects over the next four years, according to new figures from HEFCE. If achievable, this would represent an average annual investment of £4.5 billion, 51% higher than the previous four-year average.
