Where Collaboration Inspires Innovation.

Request Invite

The Higher Ed Facilities Forum is an invite-only gathering for facilities leaders at the nation’s top colleges and universities.

April 5-7, 2020 | Pasadena, CA



Meaningful Content

The Higher Ed Facilities Forum combines a balance of thought-provoking presentations and peer-to-peer discussion groups on the most relevant issues and challenges for facilities leaders at the nation’s leading colleges and universities.


The days of strolling a trade show floor are over! We curate a diverse group of leading suppliers so you can schedule one-on-one meetings with only the ones that match your campus facilities needs.


We understand that the ability to network is a chief reason people attend conferences. Thus, we carefully select the social activities that take place at our retreat. A Catamaran tour and a Dinner Cruise are just a few of the highlights we have planned.
