Almost 200 delegates made it to Sydney for SENCON 2022, our sector’s annual flagship event, brought to you by SEN. It was a huge three days, and an invaluable opportunity to connect and share thoughts and experiences with colleagues from around the country.

If you were one of those delegates, we hope that that you enjoyed yourself  and found it a valuable experience. Feedback at the event was certainly very positive, but we are keen to understand more deeply where you feel things went well, and if not, where things could be improved.

If you were there, please take a few minutes to answer our short survey .  Your feedback will assist us in ensuring that the next event continues to meet everyone’s needs. 

There was a huge offering of sessions, panels, forums and workshops; 52 to be exact!. The program was developed in response to extensive member feedback, offering more time for sharing… to see, hear, and discuss topics relevant to what is happening on campuses, rather than being ‘presented’ to. They were full of information, ideas and innovation to assist in delivering the best in student services on campuses. Presentations available here.

A wonderful evening was had by all at our fantastic gala evening at The Ivy Ballroom! It was a time to acknowledge the best in campus services with the presentation of the 2022 Student Experience Network Awards. MC’d by UON’s Susannah Lynch-Vaughan, and finishing with dancing once the formalities were completed. Hearty congratulations to all the category winners and commendations, 19 awards across 14 categories in total, were presented on the night! Check out the Award winners here

Delegates had the choice of almost 40 exhibitors to visit at this year’s Expo. Smaller than previous years due to venue size and continuing disruptions, but all the buzzier for it, with lots of new products, fun, and sampling!

There was also plenty of scope to network. 90 delegates kicked off the conference early with a fun night at at the Sydney Opera House. Plenty of laughs as we broke the ice with the “SEN Spectrograph”. At Monday afternoon’s Sundowner, delegates were afforded an opportunity to gather and kick back with  drinks by Mojo, Lion, and De Bortoli plus finger food while Abbi Yeo provided some lovely background music. Here they could mix with new and old friends from the various SEN Communities of Interest: Management; Student Activities; Clubs, Student Support, and Commercial Services.

Lots of photos are available at the SEN Facebook page, and read on for a few highlights of the event.
