Corporate Participation

"Great event! I left with numerous follow up items that will be helpful in moving my organization forward."

The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference 2021 is the premier higher ed IT event—bringing together professionals and technology providers from around the world to share ideas, grow professionally, and discover solutions to today's challenges.

There are many ways we can help our corporate community gain brand exposure, demonstrate your ideas and expertise, and make meaningful connections with key decision makers in higher education through this year's event. Whether you plan to exhibit, present, advertise, or sponsor an opportunity, we can help you craft a plan that meets your goals.

Please note: We are encouraged by recent news of increased COVID vaccine deployment and continued community feedback about their excitement to return to in-person events. As such we are planning for, and excited to welcome attendees to our in-person and online annual conference in October 2021, while acknowledging the complexities of planning a safe and effective in-person, indoor conference that meets new and emerging local, state, and federal regulations.

Helping you get the most out of your time with us is our commitment.
