Annual Conference & Awards Ceremony


Join us for an inspiring and memorable few days at an idyllic estate in the heart of the stunning Hertfordshire countryside, for our Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony.

The WPM Annual Conference brings together nearly 80% of the UK’s higher education institutions over 2½ days to learn and benefit from sector research and insights, case studies and panel discussions, as well as unique networking and collaboration opportunities.

Institutions are committed at the very highest level to improving the student experience, and making a payment may be one of the first dealings a student has with a university. Payers overwhelmingly want to pay online, and facilitating that has been proven to deliver broader operational improvements. This conference will provide you with the tools, knowledge and support you need to enable positive changes around payment processes, both at a strategic and operational level.
