  • Next, current EDUCAUSE members are offered an opportunity to secure booth space.
  • After members are offered booths, we will extend offers to those on the waitlist in the order in which requests were received.

  • NEW for 2017! EDUCAUSE 2018 Booth Selection will take place online prior to EDUCAUSE 2017, rather than the traditional onsite process. See details.
