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.

Why is it so challenging to get board members to commit to the necessary funding to maintain this asset and drive high-priority projects forward?
