Would you like to hold an event?
You might be a College or a public body, wanting to hold an important conference. Or an awarding organisation or training provider, looking to target a further education audience. Or you might want to share some new findings and get maximum exposure.

Do you lack expertise and resources?

Running an event is full of challenges – from attracting the right audience, to making the whole thing run smoothly and staying within budget. Now more than ever, you need to make every penny count.

Yet a well-designed, well-run event can give you a higher profile, a reputation as an expert, and stronger links with the FE sector. In other words, a healthy return on investment.

That’s where we come in.

Call on our expert events managers

Our experienced Events Management team will work with you to create a customised event, with your choice of format, topics and speakers. It’s the perfect way to meet your target audience in a relaxed yet focused environment.

We’re in the further education sector ourselves, so we really understand the market. What’s more, we’ve been creating events for over 15 years – so when we produce your event, you know you’re in good hands.

You’ll also be associated with the voice of the College sector – expert, objective and influential.
