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 HE 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.

As well as the structured business meetings, the Forum hosts three seminars, which are open for all to attend. The theme of this year’s seminars is: The challenges HE faces delivering future estates and facilities.

Topics we will be looking at include How UK universities are demonstrating improved sustainability; Research and science laboratory development; Student accommodation; and how can building design impact on student mental health across campus.

The importance of physical activity and wellbeing is now a key consideration for the HE build industry. Therefore, we have included a dedicated seminar programme delivering successful and sustainable physical activity for students, staff and the wider community. Topics to be addressed include the Role of sport and physical activity in mental health, how to engage students and staff in physical activity and activity design in HE active campuses.

Each presentation will be packed with insightful case studies that offer practical and hard-won wisdom from leading professionals. With a drinks reception and a gala dinner, there’s no shortage of opportunities to network with key industry figures.

What previous delegates said...

“The event was fantastic from beginning to end. It was a salesperson’s dream. I met exactly who I wanted to meet. I won a new account from this event within 2 weeks and have others in the pipeline. Can’t wait to go again. The team were really helpful, and everything was really well organised. ”

“Without doubt, these are great events to establish, develop and maintain contacts in our key target markets. They provide the opportunity to identify real projects and "open doors" that otherwise may not be accessible.”


“Very good, I always recommend these events to colleagues.”


“This has to be one of the best events I have been to for organised networking. The overall event was first class as the Project Delegates who we came to see were decision makers which makes the event worth attending for all suppliers. The venue, the layout, the food and all those connected with the day made it a pleasure to be there.”


“The event was a great success and we will be looking at attending more over the coming months.”


“A very useful and interesting blend of face to face meetings and presentations. A very worthwhile 2 days.”


“Good overall event where networking and client meetings form the basis of potential new business for suppliers.”


“Fantastic forum to connect with specifiers and contacts you might not normally get in front of, combined with the friendliness of the attendees makes this for me the best event we could go to.”


“I very much enjoyed attending the HE estates forum 2019 and found that I was able to actively engage with a variety of project delegates working in the HE sector.”
