EducationInvestor UK Summit 2021

Europe’s education market is one of the world’s most dynamic, home to a plethora of fast-growing companies residing within highly fragmented sub-sectors ripe for consolidation backed by privately managed capital. Investors in for-profit education providers can generate robust returns while making a positive social impact. As governments globally increasingly prioritise life-long learning, private investors are taking stakes not only in cash-generating organisations, but also future generations.

EducationInvestor Global’s UK Summit is designed to shine a light on the opportunities, challenges and trends at play in the European market to give executives, investors and advisors a clear picture of deal flow and operational strategies. Moreover, attendees are afforded the opportunity to form career-long relationships and learn invaluable lessons from peers.

The one-day conference is a staple in the industry calendar, attracting hundreds of delegates each year. The UK Summit will feature six streams – five of which are content-led, comprising market overviews, thought-provoking panel discussions, and engaging presentations. The final stream is a business-generating networking zone, in which delegates can catch up with old colleagues and meet new contacts.

Come and join us at what promises to be one of the industry’s biggest and best events of the year.
