Bookings are open for the W100 Annual Conference hosted by the University of Manchester, 9-11th September.

The conference, themed around A Reputation for Relevance – How Universities Are Engaging with Society, will feature international speakers from universities and other organisations exploring the ways in which institutions are working with their communities.

Sessions will include national campaigns on the impact of universities, civic relationships, how best to structure communications operations to deliver effective engagement, using sport as an engagement tool, and the impact of academics in the media.

There are still opportunities for W100 members to suggest topics and speakers for workshop sessions, and we would particularly welcome input from international (non-UK) universities. Please contact to discuss any ideas.
