The Emerge Conference is the UK’s most important gathering for a new generation of young adults who are redefining the world in which we live.

Emerge engages and connects university students and young professionals aspiring to drive transformational change, with current global change-agents leading entrepreneurial ventures, businesses and sector-defying organisations. It is a space to gain skills and resources to launch a new venture, to design intrapreneurial or entrepreneurial career pathways, and to provoke new ideas for creating a more sustainable world.

Our Park End Street venue is located in Oxford city centre and therefore we strongly recommend using public transport. The easiest way to visit the School is by train as we are located directly adjacent to Oxford rail station.

By Coach – Gloucester Green Bus Station just a few minutes walk away from the Saïd Business School, providing links to major airports and cities around the UK. See the National Express or Oxford Bus websites for more information.
From Central London – Take either the Oxford Tube from London Victoria or Marble Arch, or the X90 from London Victoria or Baker Street.
