Registration for EUPRIO 2013 closes on 14 June

Demand for places at the EUPRIO 2013 annual conference being held at the University of Kent in Canterbury from 27-29 June has exceeded expectations and registrations will close at midnight on Friday 14 June.

With 200 delegates already signed-up, the organisers achieved their target number of delegates with four weeks to spare at the end of May.

This year’s conference marks EUPRIO’s return to England after a ten-year break when the association of European higher education communicators met in Durham for one of its most successful annual events.

This year the focus will be on our ‘internal’ stakeholders – students, staff and alumni – and their importance as university brand ambassadors.

Clearly it is clearly a ‘hot topic’ – as we explore in the latest EUPRIO blog. See: https://www.euprio.eu/2013/05/27/dont-forget-your-internal-stakeholders/

UK Steering Committee member Martin Herrema said: “Registrations have been literally pouring in for EUPRIO’s 2013 conference and we will be closely registration at midnight on Friday June.”

UNPRECEDENTED LEVELS

Kevin Stuckey, Conference Manager at the University of Kent, said: “We’ve seen almost unprecedented levels of bookings for this type of event at the University’s Canterbury campus so early in the registration process.

“Canterbury is a lovely location for a conference and this, coupled to a stimulating programme of professional updating and social activity, is obviously proving an irresistible attraction for EUPRIO members.

“I know from experience that many people leave it late to register for conferences – but if anyone still wishes to attend and hasn’t yet booked they will need to act quickly.”

‘Without the support of
our academic communities…
success will become impossible’

Kent will be the first annual conference for EUPRIO’s new president, Denis Ancion, from the Netherlands, who is looking forward to the association coming to ‘the Garden of England’ as Kent is often called.

He said: “We’ll be focusing this year on what is the most important issue for communication professionals working in higher education. For without the active support of our own academic communities, success in an increasingly competitive international environment will become impossible.”

The opening keynote address will be given by Anthony McClaran, the Chief Executive of the Quality Assurance Agency (UK).
