AUDE Annual Conference 2023 - Bookings now open!

09 December 2022      Corinne Merriman, Events Manager

The theme of our 2023 conference is our place in the world. Few cities have risen and fallen on the economic tides in quite the same way as our host city for AUDE23, Liverpool. A successful international trading port, like others involved in the slave trade it has had to acknowledge and reconcile this complex and uneasy element of its history. Growing fast in the 18th century, Liverpool established a reputation as a leading commercial hub, with infrastructure to match. By Victorian times it was ‘the second city of the empire’, with a terminal station for the world’s first intercity railway. Its status as a keystone in British trade made it a target of German air-raids in World War Two. But by the 1980s, the economic tide had turned, and for decades the city became known for its high levels of unemployment as much as for its excellence in the fields of sport and entertainment. In the third decade of this century, Liverpool is a cultural and tourist mecca, high in diversity, resilient in nature and ready to ride the next waves in the endless economic cycle.

Syd Cottle (Director of Estate Management at the University of Liverpool), AUDE Executive Director Jane White and the whole AUDE team are ready to welcome members and guests to AUDE23 – ‘Our place in the world’– from 3 to 6 April 2023.
