Thanks to all for attending the Higher Ed Summit Horizons in Barcelona on 23rd October, 2018 co-hosted by Universitat Pompeu Fabra

We will be posting the session recordings in the coming weeks – please check back soon.

Salesforce.org, along with our host school, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, invite international higher education institutions for an exciting day of learning, sharing of best practices, and becoming inspired by new ideas and innovative technologies, on 23rd October 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.

Horizons is about connecting the higher education community around our shared mission: to make every student successful. At Salesforce.org, we believe that technology has the potential to be one of the most powerful equalisers of our time, providing access to data, knowledge, and above all connections.

It’s a new vision for education. Let’s Reimagine Education together!

  • Hear amazing success stories from the international community and industry experts on how to tackle higher education’s toughest challenges
  • Leverage ideas and best practices to disrupt the status quo and reimagine how you connect with your students, alumni, faculty, staff, donors, and partners
  • Be empowered to innovate using social, mobile and cloud technologies to accelerate success
  • Network and learn from peers and our partner ecosystem to elevate your solutions and transform your school into a truly Connected Campus
  • Have fun and make connections with the most innovative community in higher education

Salesforce.org Higher Ed Summit started as a small Salesforce user conference six years ago and has grown into the innovation event of the year for global higher education trailblazers. In March, nearly 2,000 attendees from colleges, universities and business schools, across the world came together in Washington D.C. to learn, share, network, have fun, and be inspired.

Building on this momentum, we’re excited to broaden our horizons, bringing a regional Summit to EMEA.
