The HEPA Forum is targeted at university professionals involved in planning, and encompasses a diverse range of international perspectives in the formal and informal interactions on planning topics of strong relevance to Asian higher education institutions. The Forum provides a platform to strengthen the planning capabilities of higher education organizations across Asia.

The Forum Program features thought-leading keynote speakers, presentations and case studies relevant to the evolving higher education landscape and its impact on Asian universities, and stimulating panel sessions and interactive breakouts enabling participants to learn from each other's experiences.


  • HEPA is not a typical conference event, it is meant to be a gathering of peers and counterparts from various institutions.
  • Participants will derive most value through active engagement and interactions with one another during the program.
  • The continuing development of HEPA as an Asian network of planners will facilitate sharing and peer mentoring, thereby contributing towards the strategic development of institutions across Asia.
