Event team


We’ve got specialist experts and talented students on hand

As a University, we have access to a wealth of expertise in a diverse range of industries and sectors. We can arrange for leading academics in specific fields to come along during refreshment breaks to network with your delegates, arrange bolt-on sessions or provide additional speakers. We can also facilitate introductions to a wide range of business leaders through our professional networks. Just speak to a member of our team about your requirements.

Our students can help to bring your event to life. Working alongside our professionals, students get the work experience they need to enhance their employability, and your event gets an injection of fresh ideas. Any profits we generate are invested back into the teaching and learning facilities at Sheffield Hallam, which has contributed to the University building some of the UK’s most modern campuses and facilities.

We’re a socially responsible organisation

Sheffield Hallam University is absolutely committed to sustainability and our environment at every level, from our Fair Trade status and our Student Union’s Gold Green Impact Award, to our Yorkshire in Bloom Award and our RIBA nominated Mews Building at Collegiate Campus which has been built with sustainably sourced materials.
