AoC Finance Conference 2020

AoC’s Annual Finance Conference and Exhibition is the must-attend event for all finance professionals in the college sector.

This year’s conference will be a one day event focused on the key challenges in the sector. It will provide you with the key insights your college needs to adapt and thrive and will explore solutions to the common challenges you face. The event will offer you space away from your college to share collective experiences and gain new ideas from peers and experts.

Approximate timings:

For those delegates wishing to arrive the night prior, there will be an informal networking session in the hotel allowing you the opportunity to meet up with colleagues and peers and make those important connections.

  • Breakfast policy and funding update with Julian Gravatt – 08:45-9:30
  • Conference start – 10:00
  • Conference close – 16:30


A full programme will be announced soon.


What did previous delegates say?

‘This was the first time I have attended the Finance Conference and it exceeded my expectations with excellent and inspirational presentations on a broad range of subjects.
It was a great opportunity for networking and refreshingly positive about the outlook for the sector.’
Judith Abbott, South Essex College

‘Attending the AoC Finance Conference helps me in my role in many ways: I get updates on the key issues in our sector (and how to deal with them), and am able to network with colleagues, which is invaluable. Attending this conference helps me decide on my priorities for the forthcoming year.’
Tracy Bull, Isle of Wight college
