2019 AEP Conference
The Academic Event Professional (AEP) conference provides a rare opportunity for event planners in academe to receive tailored professional development, network with one another, and visit with vendors that specialize in products for academic environments. Attracting both seasoned planners and industry newcomers, the conference focuses on topics unique to higher education events and helps them share - and create - best practices for the field.
The focus for AEP 2019 will be Modern Thinking. The conference will explore new ideas, technologies, and processes to ensure your events remain current and exciting. Modern Thinking will also examine how the thought processes behind planning academic events have changed and continue to evolve. Finally, AEP 2019 will seek to challenge the classic definition of a conference by incorporating innovative elements found in today's modern meetings.
Join us in San Diego to discover how Modern Thinking can transform your events.

Academic Event Professional encourages networking and collaboration among academic planners.
AEP is one of the few conferences that focus on topics relevant to academic event professionals.
AEP is an excellent experience and a great opportunity to meet colleagues who face the same challenges every day!
I will be taking more ideas home with me than any of the conferences I've attended in the past two years.
I was a first-time attendee and felt the conference had a huge amount of validity and impact for this targeted group.
The one time I never feel alone! I love being with these people.
I love that I actually get to interact with other specifically in my field. We are all on the same page!
