Student Publication Association National Conference

About this event

This Easter, Loughborough will be hosting the Student Publication Association National Conference (SPANC) alongside the Student Publication Association (SPA) in Loughborough Students’ Union (LSU).

Registration will be on Friday 8th April in the afternoon, followed by a social in the evening. Saturday will see our first set of speakers and networking events followed by the SPA awards ceremony in the evening. On Sunday we’ll be back for more conference events and the day will finish around 5pm.

The conference will be full of lectures and workshops from guest speakers in the media industry as well as opportunities to network with guests and fellow delegates. Alongside this we’ll have chances to socialise with one another and celebrate all the great work of student journalists from across the country at the annual SPA awards ceremony. It’s set to be a great evening!

The whole weekend will be based in Loughborough Students’ Union, not too far from where you can stay in Royce Halls on campus if you take on one of the accommodation options. LSU’s main room is called “Room One” (videos coming soon to illustrate what’s in store on site!) and this is where we’ll host the majority of the conference and the awards, with other breakout rooms available too.

Tickets will be on sale until 18th March. Standard tickets are £55, but accommodation on campus can be added for £82 (one night) or £119 (two nights).
