“Powering Higher Education”

The Conference theme acknowledges the foundational role that marketing, communications and advancement play in the success of Australian universities.  Engagement is now a pillar of university work in its own right, alongside teaching and research.


The UAMCD Conference is the signature event for Australia’s marketing, communications and development professionals working in the higher education sector and is proudly supported by Universities Australia.

Held every two years it has also become a premier networking opportunity for those working in universities, both within Australia and neighbouring countries.

This year’s conference is being held in Melbourne September 16 – 18 and on behalf of the Organising Committee, I encourage you to join us.

In addition to the usual on trend topics and a fantastic local and international speaker line-up,we are introducing a series of awards to recognise the contributions of the rarely acknowledged marketing professionals  “powering higher education”. We will be honouring an individual who has made a distinguished contribution to university marketing communications, and recognising outstanding achievement in three distinct categories of endeavour –  marketing, communications and development.

Entry criteria will be advised shortly.

It is my privilege to Chair the volunteer committee pulling together this year’s Conference under the theme – “Powering Higher Education” – and to extend a very warm welcome to you to join your colleagues in Melbourne in September.
