imago to welcome prestigious University conference in 2012

imago has kicked off preparations for a high profile 2012 after being named the event manager and hospitality provider of the prestigious AUDE Conference

The conference, held from 2nd to 4th April 2012, will see 120 individually invited Directors of University Estates descend on the James France Exhibition and Meeting Space at Loughborough University, for a stimulating programme of plenary and seminar sessions.  In addition to leading the management of this reputable event, imago will also be offering delegates a range of services at its conference centre Holywell Park and four star hotel, Burleigh Court.


All delegates will be attending key note speeches by Sir Drummond Bone, Master of Balliol College, Oxford and Baroness Sue Campbell, Chair of UK Sport and the Youth Sports Trust.


Emma Boynton, head of marketing and sales at imago, said: “The AUDE Conference is a natural fit for imago due to our strong academic ties with Loughborough University. The title of the conference is ‘Leading the Way’ which has obvious links with our role as host to Team GB and the Japanese Olympics team. Andrew Burgess, Director of Facilities Management for Loughborough University has played a vital role in bringing this respected conference to campus and continues to be key in leading the event management.


“Not only is imago able to provide a high standard of accommodation and excellent conferencing facilities but we also have the skills to lead in the management of this event. This is an added value service that we provide to ensure our client has the best event possible. We’re looking forward to welcoming the delegates and proud to be representing the East Midlands.”
