Venue for the Society's 2021 annual conference
Our annual conference is the largest annual academic geography conference in Europe, with over 1,800 delegates from 60 countries taking part in close to 400 academic sessions.
The Society hosts the conference in our building in London for two out of every three years (hiring additional space at Imperial College London), and then every third year we take the conference out of London. The past out-of-London conferences have been held at Cardiff University (2018), the University of Exeter (2015), the University of Edinburgh (2012), and the University of Manchester (2009).
Thank you to all those HEIs who have submitted bids to host our 2021 conference. We are now in the process of reviewing these.
More information about our requirements and the bidding process is available in our bids document (PDF).
