AEP is taking the conference to the West Coast. San Diego, here we come!
Date: Monday, January 7, 2019
City: San Diego, CA
Venue: The Price Center, UC San Diego
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.
New ASEC Track at AEP 2019!
The first Athletics Special Events Conference (ASEC) was held in Raleigh, NC in May 2018 and is now joining AEP as an educational track. The conferences embrace similar objectives and enhances opportunities for further networking for participants.
The ASEC provides a professional development opportunity for event professionals who work for and manage venues within university athletics departments. Conference attendees share concepts and creative ways in which to build revenue while maintaining strong respect for the athletic facilities and departments. In addition, ASEC offers year-long camaraderie among those who work in these prominent, state-of-the-art facilities and manage their usage beyond collegiate athletics events.
An ASEC breakout track will be available for all participants to attend during the main 2019 AEP conference on Monday, January 7, 2019. On Tuesday, January 8, ASEC will offer an optional day of athletics facilities tours, breakout sessions for discussion, speakers and lunch for an additional fee. The focal point of discussion for this day will be on best practices for university athletics venue special events, but registration is not limited to those in this specific field.
If you’re interested in participating in the optional second day of activities lead by ASEC, be sure to select this option during registration for AEP. The cost of the second day is $140.
