“The conference was very interesting and informative. It covered many different social media platforms and included speakers from a range of areas within (and external to) the University sector. I left feeling really inspired and have many new ideas that I am looking forward to implementing.”
– Project Officer
“The Social Media in Higher Education Conference was extremely valuable, it was an opportunity to hear what others are doing in this space and very comforting to know we are not alone in dealing with the challenges of using social media as a valuable tool for recruitment and student engagement. There were some great speakers and very interesting discussions and I certainly came away with a number of ideas which we will put into practice within our team.”
– Communications and Publications Officer
“Akolade’s Social Media in Higher Education conference blew me away. Two days jam-packed with eye-opening presentations were only eclipsed by the unique opportunity to engage with my peers across Australia and discover the multitude of unique approaches to our common challenges.”

The Only Event You’ll Need to Attend this Year

Why spend your time and money on multiple events in one year when you can go to one place to get decision makers from retail through to e-commerce, supply chain and fulfilment?

Why February?

We know retailers are busy. From previous research, retailers indicated that February is the best time for learning. This is a pause from major Christmas campaigns. This event is a great way to kick-start the year after time off and an opportunity to be inspired, form partnerships and prepare for the end of the financial year, and year to come.

Why Melbourne?

You’ll be positioned close to the mainstage hosting the top thought leaders in the industry – some who are travelling across the globe to share their stories. These prime positions are exclusive and will host the highest level of delegate traffic.
