Thank you for submitting your feedback
The HESPA 2016 Annual Conference saw nearly 200 delegates attend, and while planners made up the vast majority of attendees, there was also a balanced combination of other HEI colleagues, agency and sector body staff and business partners. The programme ran similarly to the previous year with a mixture of plenary and breakout sessions. New for 2016 - we added a few new items to the conference which we hope fostered improved member engagement and learning, both internally between planners and externally with commercial providers.
