Loughborough has been recognised as the Best Commercial University at the annual College and University Business Officers (CUBO) Awards held earlier this month.
The University received the award for advancements in delivery and commercial benefits based on the success of imago and Campus Living. The annual awards recognise the achievements of those working in higher education commercial services.
imago is the University’s conference and events brand offering high quality meeting spaces, venues and accommodation alongside sports and leisure facilities. imago manages Burleigh Court, Holywell Park, Loughborough University’s conference and events facilities and, The Link Hotel.
CUBO is the professional association for senior managers in higher education whose responsibilities include the strategic development, management and administration of an institution's commercial business.
The ceremony, hosted by TV presenter and engineer, Kate Bellingham, took place at the University of Sussex on the second evening of the CUBO Summer Conference.
Kay England, Chief Executive of imago, comments: “This is an amazing achievement and demonstrates how well respected we are in the university sector for what we have achieved on campus both through imago and Campus Living. It is even more satisfying to win an award which is voted for by our peers and winning is recognition of the entire team’s efforts and their commitment to excellence in everything we do.”
