An intimate group of high school leaders, counselors, and IECs from each region and university admissions officers from around the world for an opportunity to develop meaningful relationships in an intimate gathering. Attendees participate in workshop-style sessions and intentional networking events to discuss and create opportunities for growth in working together to support the needs of our students.
What Our gatherers Say
I loved this event so much. At one point I was jet lagged and needed to take a quick nap for my sanity, but couldn’t decide when to do so because I didn’t want to miss anything. In the end, I opted to just stay awake for 36 hours and don’t regret it.

Congratulations team Gen Next on the success of the recently concluded globalED gathering and THANK YOU for a wonderful opportunity to connect, learn and share at the g2 event last week.
Like I said many times at the event, it was intimate offering us chance to really connect with one another. It was very well organized with a lot of attention to detail (including the g2 themed deserts, certificates, thank you notes, the lovely elephant, the tartan bags, the sleek pen and more).
What stood out was your commitment to cause of higher education and student mentoring. Thank you for making it possible for school counsellors to attend for free and finding sponsors for our participation.

Thanks for making it meaningful. It was big enough to meet newer people and small enough to remember the conversations that we had.
G2 was different than other conferences because it was an intimate gathering of people from the education industry. I met some new people from Bangalore and got to learn from them. Trust me! Round-table discussion was the best part of the whole event; I haven't experienced it anywhere else. There are some creative ideas as well, which I will share over email. Girish and team, you are wonderful people :)

I had a great time at g2! The gathering being small was perfect, the conversations were much more genuine, and I spoke to school counselors, but also uni reps. The tension of competition was not there, which is great! Comfortable to have conversations one on one.
g2 is designed to be intimate, inspiring, and invigorating, focusing on workshops and hands-on learning to support your needs as opposed to endless sessions and depending on chance encounters to network. Workshops will be coupled with intentional networking so you are able to build long-lasting relationships meant to support students for years to come.
What is the difference between g2 GRIP and g2 ARC?
g2 GRIP is focused more toward global research and institutional partnerships and thus perfect for professionals exploring global partnerships while g2 ARC provides a platform for high-school counselors and IECs to collaborate with university admissions and recruitment professionals from around the world.
Should I attend the virtual or the in-person g2 ARCs?
Both! The virtual event connects both counselors and universities from around the world, while the in-person g2 ARCs connects counselors from each region with universities world-wide.
How many people attend g2?
Our goal is to offer an intimate experience for maximum impact. As such, each g2 is limited to no more than 300 attendees. We recommed registering early to reserve your spot.
Will there be direct recruitment opportunities at the g2 ARC?
Yes, we are offering high school recruitment fairs the day after the g2 ARC so universities are able to capitalize on their time in-region. We will be working with all the schools to provide coordinated opportunities for you to meet with students and families.
