Innovations in university marketing and communications

23 Nov 2017, 09:30 - 16:30
20 Tavistock Square 
United Kingdom


Innovations in university marketing and communications will bring together communications, marketing, external relations and digital professionals to discuss the particular nature of university marketing and communications, to draw inspiration from outside the sector, and to examine worked case studies to help you decide on the best innovations for your own marketing and communications strategy. 

Why are we talking about innovations in university marketing and communications now? 

Universities operate on a global stage, and must communicate effectively with a vast range of different stakeholders. 

An effective strategy and presence is key to building and maintaining your institution’s reputation with students – from prospective students through to graduation and beyond, potential partners and local business, and for showing the impact of your university with local and national government, and with the wider community. ​

Organised by Universities UK, the conference will bring together leading marketing and communications experts and thought leaders from both inside and outside the higher education sector. Together, we will examine and dissect the innovations that could improve, streamline and maximise impact for marketing and communications teams to ensure that you are at the forefront and achieve your strategic aims.
