EduComm Expo (ECE), the only educational conference and tradeshow exclusively focused on the needs of those responsible for implementation, oversight, and management of internal digital campus communication technology initiatives in Higher Education will debut at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, on September 30-October 1, 2015.
The two-day educational conference and show floor exhibits will focus on the future of campus communications and education technology, including the way in which technology enables communicating with students, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni, visitors and fans. Featured will be digital display solutions ranging from kiosks to video walls, communication software, remote and on-campus collaborative learning technologies, as well as mobile, desktop and audio applications that serve colleges and universities – of which there are close to 5,000 in the US alone.
An immersive educational conference will offer seminars and workshops both days that will educate attendees on best practices and the best ways to deploy, utilize and manage these technologies so that those responsible for creating, implementing and maintaining fluid and effective technology solutions will now have one place they can go to acquire these skill sets, examine all the latest technologies first hand, and learn to extract additional value from these investments.
“Today’s tech-savvy students expect our services to leverage technology in intuitive and innovative ways,” says Holli Drewry, assistant director of Communications & Innovative Technology, Virginia Tech. “EduCOMM will give me the opportunity to explore what’s new, find new ways to use existing resources, and learn best-practices from communications thought leaders that I will be able to use right away when I return to my campus.”

Georgia Tech, Ohio State, Pepperdine University School of Law, Towson University, University of California Merced, University of New Mexico, University of Notre Dame, University of Oklahoma, HSC, Virginia Tech, West Kentucky University, and West Virginia University.
