World 100 Events 2018


Discover the World 100 - date and venue to be confirmed.

Discover the World 100 aims to explore issues of reputation from a country specific perspective and engage new members. Our Discover events are for small groups of around 25-30 senior delegates and aim to bring existing members together with potential new members so that new members can find out what we do, and existing members can learn more about the best universities in a particular area.

21 - 25 May 2017 - World 100 Academy at The Moller Centre, Churchill College, Cambridge.

Strategic training in Cambridge for Communications, Marketing and International staff in Global Universities. Small classes will provide an intensive and focused experience. Group project work will support networking and interactive learning, with an optional dinner in a Cambridge College.

26 - 28 September 2018 - World 100 Conference and Study Tours

We are delighted to announce that this year's World 100 Annual Conference will take place at The University of British Columbia, Canada, 26 - 28 September 2018. Karen Carriero (Kcee), Associate Vice-President, Communications at UBC will be our host.

This time, we will have two study tours for you to pick from. Preceding the conference, from the 24 - 25 September, we will be hosted by the University of Washington, Seattle. Following the conference end on Friday, and a weekend of free time, we will be at the University of Calgary for 1 - 2 October. 


W100 events offer invaluable networking opportunities in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. They help create and strengthen personal networks for career development, benchmarking and knowledge transfer. We have had many memorable gatherings, from a floating banquet hosted by the University of Hong Kong, to Karaoke in Japan.

Every event, from our first conference at the University of Hong Kong in 2010 to our most recent conference at University College Dublin, enables members to exchange innovative perspectives on reputation, international relations and global brand building.
