Conference Attendees talking during a break in Sponsor Hall

The Higher Education Web Professionals Association hosts its Annual Conference in the fall of each year, rotating to different cities and regions across the United States.

HighEdWeb 2019 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, took place over four days. The conference offered 60+ presentations, lightning talks, half-day intensive workshops, three focused development academies and welcomed more than 700 web and digital communication professionals from around the world. About half of those attendees were first timers at HighEdWeb.

Thanks to sponsors like you, attendee costs were kept low while allowing experiences such as our special event at the Milwaukee Art Museum, and keynote by bestselling author and Top 100 Digital Influencer, Erik Qualman.
