Events, Protocol & Exhibitions


Every year, the University of Pretoria hosts a number of events and functions across the different campuses. The team at Communication & Marketing manages showcase events for both internal and external stakeholders hosted by the Vice-Chancellor and Principal.
These high-profile, high-impact events include the annual Welcoming Day, Open Day, International Students Day, the Principal’s Concert, openings of new University buildings, Expert Lectures, campaign events and staff events such as the Academic Achievers Awards function and the Spring Day celebration.

Many of the University’s showcase events involve national and international dignitaries, and visitors from other universities.

The protocol specialist provides management and protocol expertise for members of the UP community in support of high-level visitors and delegations to the University’s campuses.

For any protocol-related enquiries, please contact our Public Relations Office:

A variety of exhibition and marketing resources are available from the Exhibitions team to help faculty staff with exhibition planning. A limited number of banners and other marketing material is available for use at all University events and can be booked with the Department. The Department provides hands-on support for a number of larger events, while our exhibition guidelines will help you deliver a problem-free and successful project.
