Home » Sponsorship


There are various opportunities to sponsor HELOA events and activities, and promote your organisation to our extensive membership. Our sponsors are organisations who work with our members to support them in their roles within their HE institutions and support our mission of helping students in their HE journey.

HELOA is sponsored by

University Search

UK University Search is proud to be the key conference sponsor for this year’s HELOA Annual Conference 2020. UK University Search are sponsoring the Innovation and Best Practice Awards helping to showcase some of the excellent work which is taking place amongst HELOA membership in recruitment and outreach activities across the sector.

UK University Search provides universities, higher education colleges and apprenticeship providers with the opportunity to meet thousands of students across the UK through a multitude of large events. On our www.ukuniversitysearch.com site, students are able to find out more about the options available to them after they complete their A-Levels, read through some interesting blog articles, and plan ahead with our open days calendar.


Student CRM 

Student CRM is pleased to be this year’s HELOA Marketing and Communications Spotlight Award Sponsor.

www.student-crm.co.uk is the UK’s best-loved student recruitment software. We help universities to encourage prospective higher education students to start conversations by using our Student CRM enquiry and booking forms to register interest online and continue the conversation about their reasons for considering higher education.

We want to support all HELOA members and help to attract tomorrow’s learners whether face-to-face at HE and careers fairs organised by UCAS, at local school visits or online. Please do drop by our exhibition stand and take a look.


Gecko Engage

The GeckoEngage chatbot platform enables higher education institutions to engage in thousands of one-to-one messaging conversations with students on autopilot, 24/7/365. Our customisable, AI-powered chatbots handle the heavy-lifting, automatically answering questions, capturing leads, routing students to individual staff members and more. This releases your team from routine admin work, and frees them to focus on the high-impact tasks that make a difference. GeckoChat works across all the main channels students use to talk to your institution. So whether you’re communicating with students via text message, on Facebook Messenger, or over live chat, one chatbot can handle everything. We also offer a visit experience platform that covers everything from capturing enquiries at recruitment fairs in far-flung corners of the globe, to registering students on to campus tours, to tracking attendance for sessions at open days.

Gecko Engage are one of our sponsors at this year’s HELOA Annual Conference 2020.
