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.

CONNECT WITH STRATEGIC PARTNERS

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.

PURPOSEFUL NETWORKING

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.

Regardless of an institution’s size or location, preparing for the threat of an active shooter is top of mind for all university leaders. Kevin Foust, Chief of Police at Virginia Tech, address the human element of safety on college campuses.

"This is the only national conference that I attend. You pick great locations, but that is not why I come. The content and delivery would get me to go to any site."
