Support the Warwick Economics Summit.
Warwick Economics Summit is the largest student-run economics conference in Europe. In 2022, we are proud to be celebrating our 21st anniversary.
WES 2022 will take a hybrid approach, combining the best aspects of virtual and in-person events to provide the most engaging and interactive experience to the largest number of people possible. We aim to have 550 students attending in-person, the same number as previous Summits. For the virtual aspect of the Summit, we are hoping to expand on the 2800 tickets registered we had last year. We are hoping to attract over 3,000 virtual attendees from all over the world for WES 2022.
Why we need your support
Due to the nature of a virtual summit, we have decided to offer our tickets free of charge. Whilst ticket sales were the main source of income in previous summits, providing them free of charge will enable us to reach out to the widest possible target audience in the most accessible way.
Each ticket we provide for free costs us $9 (£7). Your donation will help us to cover these costs, and ensure we can continue to expand and grow the summit in years to come.
Giving more than the ticket cost will help us in our mission of student empowerment and equality of opportunity. In our 2020 summit, we established a Grant Scheme, in partnership with Slipstream Education UK (formerly, Project Access UK). The grant allowed for students who come from financially disadvantaged backgrounds to obtain a ticket to the summit free of charge.
With your support we can expand this initiative in future years, giving more students from Warwick and other universities this opportunity.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
2020 Project Access Grant Delegate:
" I had such an amazing experience at WES 2020 and am very glad that I made the decision to apply for the grant. A straightforward application process in exchange for a weekend packed full of insightful talks and meeting new people - seems like an easy decision to me! I’d highly encourage anyone eligible for the grant to apply. I cannot stress this enough, WES is too good an opportunity to miss out on! "
