EO University

EO Universities combine life-changing education with real conversations. You will learn from business experts, experience diverse cultures and build relationships with members from around the world.

Our biggest events, called EO Universities, bring hundreds of members together for once-in-a-lifetime experiences, either virtually or at exciting locations. Typically held twice a year, EO Universities are high-energy, educational and social events where attendees grow through life enhancing connections and shared experiences.

Once-in-a-lifetime events

“This was the greatest commercial possible for a new members to become lifelong members.” – Attendee at 2019 EO Portugal University

Evening socials, off-site activities and learn arounds take you out of the traditional conference environment and out into the region. From a moveable feast in the city’s trendiest districts to some of the most unbelievable parties you’ve ever attended, much of what draws you to attend an EO University is enjoyed after the sun has set. And what makes these events unlike any others are the unique and exclusive off-site experiences the local teams create for you. Be it adventure, food and wine, history, art, nature or behind the scenes of a successful local business – there is something for everyone.

Immersive experiences

While we’re keeping you busy learning, dining and exploring, we infuse local touches throughout the week. You cannot leave a location without tasting the city’s delicacies, hearing its musicians, or bonding with the local members. We create moments of joy throughout the University so you can’t stop smiling.
