AEP 20/20 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.
AEP 20/20 will be focusing on a vision for the future of academic events. How have academic events evolved over the years, and in what trajectory are they now headed? The conference will explore new ideas, technologies, and processes to ensure your events are prepared for the continued growth and development of academic events. AEP 20/20 also will seek to challenge the classic definition of a conference by incorporating innovative elements found in today's – and tomorrow’s – modern meetings.
Join us in March 8-9 in Las Vegas to discuss a vision for the future of academic events.
More information on AEP 20/20 will be posted in the coming weeks, with the program schedule and registration scheduled to be available in late October.

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!
