Our event series

Our Global Sustainable Development Congress brings together thought leaders and innovators to discuss urgent solutions to the sustainability emergency. It is a call to action for universities and businesses to pivot their educational, research, innovation and outreach programmes towards tangible outcomes. The agenda addresses the transformations critical to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Our World Summit Series brings together pre-eminent global thought leaders from across higher education, research, industry and government to share best practices in the development and leadership of world-class universities and research. Chaired by our expert staff and journalists, this series of agenda-setting events allow attendees to debate, discuss and drive forward the future of higher education governance, innovation and research.


Our Digital Universities series brings together higher education, industry and policy leaders working at the intersection of academic innovation and technology to reimagine universities in the digital age. Through thought-provoking dialogue, the series presents the latest challenges and opportunities of digital transformation along with the culture change needed to enable the global sharing of knowledge and learning without boundaries.

Our THE Campus Live series is made up of regional-focused events designed to support academic leaders and administrators to embrace innovation and drive institutional success. The agenda looks at the key issues in each region in the areas of academic innovation, student success, leadership and governance and internationalisation.


Our THE Awards series comprises landmark events in the higher education calendar. Free to enter, and judged by a panel of sector experts, they shine a light on the exceptional work taking place in higher education. Hundreds of institutions enter, and winners vary from world-renowned highly ranked institutions to those less well-known and operating in uniquely challenging circumstances, and every shape and size in between.

Our HashtagHigherEd series consists of dedicated regional forums for higher education marketing and communications professionals to come together and share best practices in communication, marketing and branding strategies in a crowded and dynamic landscape, and to share examples of successful campaigns.
