Celebrating 50 years of bringing the industry’s best together
This is an extra-special year for StudyWorld – it’s our 50th birthday! We can’t wait to celebrate half a century of helping quality agents and educators build brilliant business relationships.
StudyWorld is famous for its networking events, so of course we’re planning a birthday party in Westminster, as well as two days of business meetings and inspirational seminars for 700+ of the world’s leading education specialists.
Amazingly, the first StudyWorld wasn’t the only notable event that happened in 1969 – there was plenty going on in the world, and “swinging London” was leading with fashion as well as music (so if you’re planning to dress up for our Tuesday night party think mini-skirts, flared trousers, beads, and heavy eye make up).
What else happened?
In the UK…
- The Beatles played their final live performance, on the roof of the Abbey Road studios – a concert which was stopped by the police.
- Beatles John Lennon and Paul McCartney got married (not to each other!)
- Concorde, the world’s only supersonic passenger jet, flew for the first time.
- The death penalty was abolished
- The first series of Monty Python’s Flying Circus was shown on the BBC
- Children played on the first Space Hoppers
And the whole world watched as Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the Moon.
Whether or not you remember any of that, we want to invite you to celebrate with us at StudyWorld this September.
We’ve changed as much since 1969 as the music and fashions. To start with, StudyWorld was known as the English Language Schools Workshop, organised by Visit Britain, and it moved around different venues, often housing delegates in university residences. Plenty of delegates remember the Brighton days, when it had the catchy name of The International Languages and Education UK Fair.
Now, we’re the national showcase for the UK’s education offer with support from UK government and Education is GREAT. High-profile buyer delegations and quality agents attend from key international education markets to meet educators from UK language centres, boarding schools, universities and more.
This year, we have had a fantastic number of agent applications and with all the celebrations, it’s going to be a great event.
