Attended by Vice-Presidents, Directors, and Heads of Communications, Marketing, and International Relations at top universities, the World 100 Annual Conference welcomes both members and non-members, plus attendees from organisations within the higher education industry. New members are always encouraged to contribute presentations which enables them to promote brand profile to some of the most important influencers in higher education.

Annual Conference

2021 Conference

This year we will be running a series of regional World 100 Conferences during the 2021/2022 membership year that will offer the best opportunity (given pandemic uncertainties) of providing the face-to-face engagement that our members value so highly, and the ability to engage with leading speakers focusing on the key issues in higher education reputation management.

These regional events will take place in three key regions: Europe & the UK; the APAC region and North America. The first of these was W100 Live and took place in London, UK, on November 24, 2021.

The programme featured speakers from member institutions from across Europe and included a delegate dinner, giving attendees a return to the networking of previous conferences that we’ve been missing for so long.

The event, although separate, ran parallel to THE Campus Live UK and THE awards and formed part of this year’s conference series which sees The World 100 Annual Conference replaced with three regional in-person or hybrid events in three regions of the globe.
