Much More Than Presentations


The unproductive days of aimlessly strolling an expo floor are over! In advance of the forum, participants of the Higher Ed Facilities Forum are able to login to our private network and schedule facetime with the service providers and supplier companies that interest them most.


In addition to thought-provoking presentations, the forum also provides structured opportunities for casual discussions amongst peers. With a delegation of administrators from the nation’s leading higher education institutions we realize the potential for these organic conversations.


Outside of the educational offerings, we know that a prime reason people attend conferences is to network. Which is why we carefully consider the social activities that take place at the event. HEFF provides numerous opportunities to establish meaningful relationships! The social activities will be announced at a later date.

"I had the opportunity to talk to new colleagues and to those that I knew from my previous attendance at the forum. There are differences in the funding models between the UK and US, but there are also a significant number of challenges that bind us together. Hopefully, we can continue to learn from each other."

Tentative Agenda

"It was my first HEFF conference and I thought it was great! The size felt intimate enough to meet others and learn about their story and successes or challenges."
