Welcome to The Higher and Further Education Show 2014
As Higher and Further Education in the UK continues to feel the strain of recent changes to funding and the rising demands of students, the need for business leaders across universities, Higher Education institutions and Further Education colleges to find new ways to run and manage their organisations has never been greater.
Student numbers still remain above 2-million in Higher Education and 4-million in Further Education but recent changes combined with global competition have increased the pressure on HE and FE leaders to find innovative ways to improve both student retention and recruitment. So, with annual spend across both UK HE and FE at £28bn and £8bn respectively, this is a highly attractive and sustainable marketplace for businesses whose solutions can drive down costs, improve efficiency, increase productivity, drive growth and enhance student experience.
The Higher and Further Education Show is designed specifically with all of this in mind – enabling HE and FE business leaders and decision makers to find and purchase the right solutions to their specific challenges.
Developed in-conjunction with the sector, it is the ONLY event of its kind to bring together all of the key business groups - for one-day only each year – from across HE and FE, to meet, network, discuss the current challenges, share the latest initiatives and to find the best providers and partners.
The Rt Hon David Willetts MP, Minister for Universities and Science is already confirmed and just one of the many reasons why more than 2000 senior decision makers will be here on the day.
This is an unrivalled opportunity to forge new business in the Higher and Further Education sector but places are limited. So, if you want to meet face-to-face with Procurement Directors, Heads of ICT, Directors of Facilities & Estates, Partnership Managers, Directors of Student Services, and HR Directors and showcase face-to-face how your proven solutions will enable them to successfully meet their challenges, then please contact Mohammed Umerji directly on 01254 504933 or email Mohammed.Umerji@heandfeshow.co.uk.
