We're excited to welcome delegates back to the World 100 Annual Conference in person!  Join The World 100, Network members, and a myriad of higher education experts in beautiful Montréal, Canada. In a change to most World 100 conferences, we will be hosted by two of the world’s leading universities: Concordia University and McGill University, with a day allocated to each institution.

This year we will be exploring the future of reputation in higher education with a focus on connectivity and innovation. The theme reflects the vast growth and developments higher education has seen over recent years, whether it be down to changes demanded by COVID-19 or changes that reflect ongoing societal issues and student demands.

The return of the in-person conference also sees a return of the members’ study tour, where delegates will be visiting the campus or campuses of further prestigious, member institutions based in Canada. Study tours offer delegates exclusive access to unique reputational assets of the host university and the opportunity to hold strategic discussions with senior university staff.

We are currently working to bring you more information on the programme and booking will open shortly.
